Mind you, he sent the email to my mom last night before the big scene happened with difficult child this morning. This is what he had to say in response to my mom's earlier email asking him for his help. "Hi, B. I am not mad, just a little disgusted with the handling of everything and trying to evaluate my position. I have been super busy today so no time to respond to everybody. First off, Cat should not be grabbing the phone from anybody and should have severe consequences. Again, I know I say this a lot, but she doesn't pull that with V (stepmom) and I. It's not that she is afraid of us and that we yell. We demand respect and will not tolerate the whiny **** she pulls with you two. I WILL NOT TOLERATE IT and neither should you guys. I have already texted her a few minutes ago to let her know it needs to stop. Amber can call me in the morning if she does not co operate. I have no hard feelings but just don't understand why she continues to act the way she does. I welcome your input. Thanks, J." So after this I call him this morning to get difficult child to school. difficult child screams at him, tells him she refuses to go to school. Also tells him no way in hell she is gonna live with him and he can't make her. Then she hangs up on him. Attempting to call the police is what finally made her get in the car and go to school. Nothing he said convinced her to go. So much for her listening to him and respecting him. That may have been the case long ago, but now she's 15 and she's not taking any of his c-r-a-p. So he gets to eat his words. The kids are spending the weekend with him and boy it should be interesting to find out what happens. I am fully 100% ready to give over difficult child to her dad. easy child will still live with me. I can't continue to battle like this. I am late to work because of it and my job is in jeopardy. He can have her. If she doesn't go to school tomorrow I am dropping her off at her dad's and leaving her there for good. I figure that even though my child support will stop, I can at least get the court to get ex to pay half of my son's daycare. difficult child thinks she has it tough now. She has no idea what's in store for her at her dad's. She decided to tempt fate and now she ruined it for herself.
