Latest fun game he is playing is he texts me demanding to have the kids call him at a time he KNOWS I can't have them call (ie they're still at school or I'm at work) and when I don't comply or reply to his idiotic demand he then refuses to speak to the kids at all for the rest of that day.

Forgive me for not knowing your back story. How long have you all been divorced? His behavior is childish and has to be designed to make you jump through hoops or get riled up.

I think in that case, I would reply, "As you should know, the kids are in school at that time, [or I am at work that time]. If you would like to suggest a time that works with their or my schedule, I will be more than willing to help. If not, you can call the kids in the evening.

Put the responsibility on him. He is trying to keep you engaged emotionally. The sad thing is, the kids are the ones caught in the middle.

oh and by the way, his refusal to talk to the kids only hurts him. I know you aren't taking on that responsibility.

Mine finally forgot about me after he found a wife and had another kid. Until then, he was all over me like stink on sh!t.

Oh yes. My X expects my kids to act a certain way or call even when they don't want to, and then is mad and acts like a child himself when it does not go his way. My 9 and 15 yr old are way more mature than him. Nothing I can do about it, and they are to a point they don't care much if he acts mad.

Ugh....what an a$$. I too hope you are saving all of the texts. And remember, just b/c he texts or calls does not mean you have to respond.
