I have to post somewhere to keep it from happening -- and at least I know I have some friends here who will care to listen.
My ex totally sabotaged my daughter's private school, so they took away her financial aid and then he won in court with the public school over the
charter school I'd found for her. He started working on her head long before it was settled in court, so she would come home telling me she was going
to the school by her father's -- even before I had to drop the suit against her private school, because I couldn't get a preliminary injunction
until after the school year would be half over, and I didn't want to disrupt her any more than necessary. This divorce has been very hard on her
because her father is insisting on involving her five year old mind in our conflict. I don't want to hurt her more by putting her in one school, then
winning a case against her old school, putting her there for half a year, then having to move her back to yet another school for next year.
So she's going to one of the public schools in my city, which has one of the worst school districts in my state. All because he wanted to make me
upset by screwing up her private school, and because this school is only three blocks from his house.
He's already met her teacher and seen the classroom, and had conferences with the principal and teacher. I only got to meet the principal because I
kept bugging her all summer for a meeting, and got in to see her last Thursday.
So this morning, my kid is telling me she's apprehensive and that her stomach feels funny. I'm getting her there OK, no tears so far, just a little
trepidation. I found her classroom, and her teacher, who told me that she would show me where the kids are to line up in the morning, and took me
there, and that was all she'd say to me as she was busy.
I took my kid out to where she's supposed to line up and her father is there. My daughter, who was nervous, but OK, started screaming and crying as
soon as she saw him and ran over to him. He gloated at me, smirking as he held her and said in a saccharine voice, "Thank you for bringing her."
There's a court order in place that we are to meet to exchange the kids at the police station to prevent any problems or friction in front of the
kids, which he violated. I was stunned and didn't know what to do, so I ended up asking my daughter who she wanted to stay with her, him or me. She
chose him, and as I walked away, I saw her freaking out and crying in his arms as he smiled at me in triumph.
So I still haven't met her teacher really, or seen the classroom, and he's hurt his daughter by coming just to gloat at me, and the court will end
up making excuses for him instead of holding him responsible for what he's done. Again.
This crap keeps going on and on and he just won't leave me alone in our children's best interests. I don't want them hurt anymore, but he wont'
let up. It's enough to make me want to
What kind of man comes to school against a court order, to bask in his victory over his ex wife, at the expense of his daughter's feelings and
well-being? What the hell kind of world lets people like him continually get away with this?
I'm so fried right now, I better stay out of the faith forum. I don't want to take my frustrations out on innocent (relatively speaking) bystanders.
