My husband's ex hates me (and him) because she has convinced herself that we had an affair while they were together, which we didn't. She believes this because we were friends while they were married and we began dating while they were separated. She refuses to acknowledge anything other than we had an affair while they were together (she even got an STD test during their separation!!!) and that he left her for me.
I can deal with her targeted hatred towards me and her incorrect assumptions, but it's so sad to see how openly she and her parents (whip watch the kids daily) hate me and my husband to others and especially to the kids. My husband has a really close relationship with his kids and he has been diligent about listening to the kids' counselor's advice about their emotional well-being, introducing me to them, and integrating me into their family. It's gone beautifully and the kids and I have a wonderful, loving relationship. We have never said anything negative about their mom and we include her in our prayers at mealtime and at bedtime with them.
My issue is that due to the overt hatred from their mom, they don't talk to either her or their dad about anything happening in their lives at the other's house. We hear is obvious tension whenever their mom calls to talk to them and she's asking them about their day. They are also bothered and confused whenever we say something good about their mom. My question is, is there anything we can do to help this? Any thoughts are appreciated.
