I don't think I've reached the point where it's better, but I do think 4 vs 3 will be better for the kids all around. A relative said to me recently that a chair needs 4 legs to stand strong.

[ - ] I used to share custody with exDH 50/50. It was getting progressively worse and my DCs, who are in high school, were finally at their breaking point in dealing with the stress at his house and asked to stay with me full-time. This was after months of them trying to talk to their dad and work things out. He has a bad temper and is emotionally bullying, tantrums, etc. He was absolutely livid with them and me, though for the past 6 weeks, they have only been with me with virtually no contact from him except lately he has been texting them begging them to comeback. When my son suggested a family discussion (all of us) to try and come up with a new plan he refused, saying he wants to talk to them alone and I have no right to be part of this. I know what he is doing - they are good kids and he will absolutely try and guilt/bully them into something though they have been clear that while they are OK seeing him for dinner occasionally, they are not OK living with him right now. I know that what I probably have to do is indeed let him come get them and talk to them without me but I just hate the fact that they are going to have to be subjected to this as it is absolutely brutal.

I actually talked to our mediator (we had a mediated divorce) who said that it was best to give it a few weeks to settle/calm down and then look at changing the custody agreement once we had a revised version. Because at the time that they came to stay with me he - in an angry tantrum - said he didn't want to see their faces for 6 months. [ Reply | More ]

To be clear, I advocated for 50/50 custody and have always encouraged a relationship with their dad. My concern is how terribly I suspect this conversation will go. He rages, he screams, he storms off, he has kicked them out of the car a few miles from home to punish them for "not loving him enough," etc. I hate knowingly sending them into that. [ Reply | More ]

he has a bad temper, can be very emotionally abusive (insulting them, denigrating them), is very selfish so in many cases switches between ignoring them completing and then every now and then wants to parade them out to show he is a great single dad and gets very mean if they don't behave how he wants, that kind of thing.

Let me guess - you were the "accomplished" one before? And by "accomplished" I mean the one with the DH and kids? And she was the weird one? And now she's cheating by becoming "normal" also? I hope my girls aren't awful to each other like you are to your sister. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Didn't get into G&T - think we will be moving. I'm so sad because I love NYC soooo much, but DH just wants the burbs and good schools without a pricetag and space. I only like the idea of space and think I'm going to go crazy - just crazy- in the burbs...love just walking around getting in errands, along with fun with kids (stop off at playground). sooo sad. He doesn't even know what burb to go too because he grew up in France!! 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP: local school is PS 527 and likely our DS will need to start K there as I don't think we can find a house in a couple of months. I've heard good things but DH has his heart set on moving out. [ Reply | More ]

That sounds like it isn't really a G&T issue then. Because going to 527 is not worth leaving the city over (IMO). Sorry DH and you aren't on the same page about the city. That's hard. Do you SAH? I would go NUTS in the suburbs (I grew up in Westchester...). [ Reply | More ]

up and coming but lacking the ability to fundraise like other UES schools. Nice down to earth families who work for the school, very diverse. Worth a shot even if you like your zoned school. [ Reply | More ]

Demographics. They have a diverse (real diversity, not expats and supers' kids) family body and were until recently title 1. But the involved families really do give a lot to the school in the ways they can. [ Reply | More ]

No. It makes me wonder why we aren't granting them asylum the way we do with political refugees. [ Reply | More ]

Who is "them"? The girl was accused of being part of a gang that murdered a taxi driver, so we certainly wouldn't want to be granting HER ilk asylum. The mob that killed her is pretty clearly also a group of psychotic thugs, so we don't want THEM getting asylum, either. The best solution would seem to be to keep them all out, lest our own society begin to look more like theirs. [ Reply | More ]
