  • depends on how often. That is their time together. If you are calling to say good night before bed than it is ok. But They need to spend quality time together too.

  • depends on your reasons and how often. if you are doing it to irk his dad, then its wrong. if you know doing it too often is creating drama, then its wrong.

  • Are you calling every 5 minutes or every hour? If so, that would be wrong because that is taking away time that he is with his father. But if you are calling at night to say good night etc.. no I don't think that is wrong.

  • You shouldn't call if it is only weekend visitation. He should know he can call you or if you would like him to call once a day. You could even supply him with a cell phone if his father doesn't have a cell phone.

    If you and his father want to work out an agreement that the father calls once a day when he is with you and you call once a day when he is with the father then that would be good.

  • I disagree with Gailll on this one. If we were separated, I would be perfectly find with DH calling our DD when I had her, and I would hope he felt the same way. The longest she is ever away from me is overnight (7 p-7 a), and I miss her when we're not together. So, no, I don't think you're wrong for calling him.

  • I only call 2 say god night

  • I don't see it as a problem that you call to wish him good night. If you were calling five or six times a day, then your ex would have justifiable reason to be angry that you are cutting into his scheduled time with his son.
