How do I tell my DH I don’t want to give his son a gift? I think of gift giving as a “want to” not a “have to” and I honestly don’t want to. I don’t think he should receive a present from someone that he doesn’t “respect” or “like”.
And if I don’t give a gift to SS, can I still give one to SD? She’s been nothing but sweet and respectful.
I am the BM to two girls, now 16 & 14. Their father and I have not been together since they were 7 & 5. He and I get along great. We truly co-parent. When one child would attempt to pit us against each other we would call the other to verify the story. It only took a few times of being caught in a lie and paying the price for it before that behavior stopped. We customized our custody agreement to fit our work schedules. This resulted in a 40/60 split in physically caring for the children. I am the 40. Because of this I was deemed responsible to pay child support.
A quick run down of the abbreviations used please. I’ve figured out a few but if you’ve got the time I’d appreciate the education.
Obviously I’m new here but so appreciative of the community. This forum is amazing!
I’m going to skip the history of the situation and go straight to my vent and would appreciate any feedback.
