My bf has been divorced from his x wife for almost 2 years now. He and I started dating shortly after his divorce was finalized. They have a 2 1/2 year old together. In the beginning of our relationship, once his x found out he was with me, she started trying to get back together with him. This normally took place when he would drop his daughter off or she would pick her up from eachother's homes. She would always take the conversation somewhere to the effect of "don't you want your family? Let's get back together, Ashley's clouding your mind..." so on and so forth. My bf told me about it and I said I was no longer comfortable with them meeting at eachother's houses since she couldn't be respectful of our relationship. He has respected my wishes since but now she's at it again with the guilt trip. She is telling him that meeting at neutral location is teaching their daughter that her parent's can't even get along well enough to meet at eachother's houses and that it is harmful for her. Also that her memory will always go back to a parking lot somewhere that her parent's used to meet. I think she is being absolutely ridiculous and this is a common thing especially with divorcee's who can't keep custody exchanges "business only". My bf is torn because she's really getting to him and he feels guilty if this is, in fact, harmful to his daughter. I think its perfectly fine. I need your opinions!Answer Question
IDK. I guess that would be best asked of a child psychologist. I wouldn't think it would be harmful, especially depending on where it is done. If it's done at the police station, then I might be able to see her point. If it's done somewhere that is normally associated with happiness, then it shouldn't have any negative impact on the child (like a park where she is allowed to play for a few minutes). I would always suggest that they get a professional opinion rather than just going off of one person's feelings on it though. Since you aren't the child's mother, I don't think your opinion carries as much weight as the mother and father. JMO.
