He doesnt get all the credit for raising the kids but I do everything I can to raise them and be a good mom and he does nothing ( he does pay cs but only because he doesnt have a choice its taken right out of his check) and the kids praise him like hes the best parent ever. One day when they are old enough they will see what Ive done for them and what he has done

Yup. I do everything. School and sporting events, doctor appts, money (he pays no support), hugs them when sick , feed them... EVERYTHING. Yet every time they see him they do fun stuff so he gets all the glory. The kids will see when they get older.

I do alot of it, but my son is old enough that he's starting to realize what really happens vs what his dad says happens.

My ex brags about all of dd's accomplishments. He's done nothing towards them though. I've done the basketball, orchestra and schooling. I pay for everything. He acts like it's all him though.
