Since September the ex got a girlfriend and from my point of view he stopped seeing his kids to spend more time with her. I know this because the das he was ment to be having his children he would be out partying with her.
Which really hurts coz the kids shold come first.
We now are to start mediation (coz iv never not wanted him to be a dad but want him to understand that the children should come first and be his prioty)
He's taken 2 of the children to meet and spend the day with his girlfriend. This was abit ago and after not seeing them for months. The older 2 have met her and said she's nice but they don't want to see her every time they see their dad. And my youngest says she never wants to meet her.
As you can see the kids are divded coz he rushed into them meeting her. They have now moved into together and mediation is still not set up coz I asked him to sort it out and 2 months later I find that I'm sending the forms off.
I'm really worried about my children's feelings. My eldest started having panic attacks around September this was when contact declined. I know I can't tell him what to do can only suggest things it's just that it's been emotionally hard for my girls.
Has anyone been/going through this that can give me advice? I am thinking let him pick his days bla bla but I'm also thinking he's had it so easy coz I didn't stand my ground. Thing is our relationship wasn't good and I found it hard to stand my ground didn't want to rock the boat etc. Please any advice would be brilliant thank you
