Greetings. Thank you…I am feeling much better and recovering well from my surgery.
Your husband needs to immediately respond that he is telling the children that they should spend time with mom. He should also tell her that he is willing to attend any type of family therapy that she will share the costs of (or pay for) to get the children back visiting her.
Yes, you may need to be clear that Mom’s time is every other week and the child “must” go, especially if mom demands the same. Now, on the other hand, if the child is 16, then the child’s desires will play a part. Specifically are you in contempt - not based on the language that I read herein (in my humble opinion). Thank you.
