tape recording!

My ex is demanding that I go out and buy a video camera so I can tape our son at events and give him copies. Personally if I was able to afford a video camera I would have no problem doing this or if I already had one. But my ex thinks I should go out and buy one for his benefit I told him I cannot afford it and if he thinks I should get one to use for him he should have to buy it. Agree? disagree?

So I assume that you do NOT own a smart phone.

I think that if you can't afford to buy it he should, or you should split the cost. 

Maybe if him buying it causes a blowout, mention splitting the cost?

I honestly cannot afford to go half I think if he wants it he should provide it. Just like if he had custody and I was expecting him to video record everything I would pay for it.

Oh well
Either he goes or puts at least half the money for a camera to record.

I said IF I had the money to pay for half I would but I pay for more than half of my kids things so I don't have money for extra things.

I would stand my ground then. Just sucks you don't have a smart phone because they have decent cameras.. (and record vids)

However I do think it is great that he wants to have the recordings.

Can he not make it to his son's events? That would be the easiest solution for all parties. Plus, I am sure your son would like it much better if his Dad was there.

If HE doesn't put forth the effort to be at his events, and wants them recorded, HE needs to buy the damn camera himself.
You don't even need to justify your answer to him by telling him that you can't afford it....all he needs to be told is, "No".
