He never takes the kids when they're sick

Recommended Posts

My ex never ever takes the girls if they're sick. He moved over an hour away and only sees them two weekends each month. He was supposed to come get them yesterday morning, but when I texted that one had a fever, he backed out. He was mad it ruined his weekend, like it was my fault she got sick! Anyone else deal with this?

If he just wants to be Disney Dad and only be there for the fun times, your kids will always remember that you were the one who was there for them when they were sick.

Keep a notebook with all the times he doesn't follow the custody agreement. Even if you don't want to take away his limited visitation, it's valuable for any future negotiations that he doesn't take the time he has.

I'm having the opposite problem again this school year. Whenever one of the kids is sick, school calls my ex (the mom) first. We both work flexible jobs, and I wouldn't mind taking a day off to watch a sick kid now and then.
