Children's father EXPECTING to be able to always call and talk to the kids....

Does anyone have any advice on allowing or not allowing calls?  He will call my phone until it explodes or I answer, even if I tell him the kids are in bed or busy, etc.  I have tried to a be understanding and cooperative but I am sick and tired of being harrassed.  It has gotten to the point that I have started making phone harassement reports.  I am looking at taking him back to court and let the court tell us what will and won't be allowed, then I am not the bad person anymore.  The kids have never been kept from him and I won't do that but him trying to control me thru the kids has to STOP!

Take him back to court..... tell the court that he calls beyond bed times.... put a time restraint on him. I had to do that with my oldest son's sperm donor. He can't call past 8p during the week and 9pm on the weekends and not allowed to call before 9a on the weekends and before 4p during the week during school session (that's when my son gets home from school) and 9a during the week during summer break.

I would tell him flat out that he is allowed to call between x:00-x:00 each day (say, 4:30-5:30pm) and that is it. If he calls outside of that window, you will take him back to court.

btw.... I would turn off your cell phone if you can past a certain time until you can get to court.

My exh thinks I'm suppose to pick up my phone whenever he calls. If they are busy or sleep I send it to vm. I have nothing to talk to him about so I usually communicate via email with him and have his number blocked from texting/calling my cell phone. The only reason he can call now is b/c my house phones stopped charging.
