  • How old are the kids? That matters a ton. If they're little and don't want to attend because of what their mother is telling them, that's one thing. Being a teen or older and not choosing to attend is their decision.

  • I guess it depends on the age of the child.If they are really young, their dad should be able to convince them himself.But if they are teens, you have to be more subtle about it.Maybe reverse psycology.
    Some ex's are jealous, and matter how nice you are to them.Even if the new woman had nothing to do with their breakup.

  • Why does SHE have to tell them?? Why can't HE?
