So df just got custody of his dd, Im happy for that, now of course the case wont close till Dec but they are watching him closely& have told him that any little mistake that he makes & they will put her in a foster home, she has a mentor who was assighned by the judge, this mentor has to come by 1x per week n he gets pissed off because she calls all the time, now the mentor just called me n told me she was tired of him not returning calls n today dd didnt go to school, he just didnt send her of course the school called her & i had to make up a lie, the menor is keepng notes of all this n df just makes excuses that he cnt recieve msg from his phone b/cuz its broken but yet he can recieve them from mine, i keep telling him just to comply i know it suxsbut soon it will all be over,he thinks that because he was mad ethe custodial parent he has this case, should i just leave him alone in if something hppens kinda say told u so?

  • Never say told you so to any one. It's too bad for the child but he is a grown up and should take care of his own problems.

  • He's a parent, he needs to figure out how to become a RESPONSIBLE parent and that means following up on phone calls etc. and you should NOT be lying for him, covering his tracks or even having to ride his a$$ to make him act like the adult PARENT!

  • I would stop covering for him. He's the parent and its his responsibility to follow the orders that's been provided. I agree dont say told you so.
