  • I had the same problem with my ex and the kids.. they are just now getting to the age where he can actually do fun things with them. teach him how to play with his child, blocks, counting, animals, shapes.. he can even pretend to shoot the blocks down if he wants.. boys lol

  • You leave him with his child and go shopping or out to lunch with your friends, on a regular basis. You don't give him a choice, he is the father and he needs to step up and learn to be.
