Being Civil

So I texted my ex and told him we have to get along for our son... I said that he can pick our son up at any time but the drop off location and pick up will be the police station. I also said that I will not fund his visitation or anything like that. But I told him he can see our son every day if he chose to just let me know....I think I handled it well. What does everyone think?

  • Why in a text? Is it that bad that you can't talk on the phone? Or are you keeping a written record of all communications? As far as what you said, do you have a court ordered visitation schedule? Do you have custody? If not, those things need to be worked out.

  • mrsmom-I have full custody he has visitation. He gets our son every other weekend. But I offer him more time than that.

  • I think you both need to grow the hell up or that child needs to be taken away. This is pathetic.

    Everyone (on this site, generally speaking) thinks a parent's job is to do right by the child (ren).

  • tnm-I will follow the order where it says pick up location but if he wants to see our son more that will benefit our son. Pick up location will not benefit our son
