Men are not the only

deadbeats.

"She" can be one too! When you look at the deadbeat sites, ask yourself if you're behaving like a deadbeat, and remember that men are victims of  "her" deadbeat  mentality also.

  Whether you are a custodial parent, a non-custodial parent, a first wife, a second wife, a girlfriend, a boyfriend, ask yourself if you're behaving in the best interest of the child.    

 

 

02/13/02 Ss was doing homework. Bm called. Our new rule is the girls ask me if ss's done with homework cuz last time he lied to my daughter about being done in order to refuse the phone call. I asked ss if he was done with the last sentence of homework he said he had. He said yes, but he realized he had more French homework. My daughter didn't want to deal with her. I got on the phone and told bm he was doing homework. 

She demanded to know, "He goes to school later now. What is his bedtime?!?" I said 10pm. She said ok.

I realized she'd probably be calling after 9pm.

I called dh (who's at robotics) to let him know. We came up with that the kids still can't receive phone calls after 9pm (cuz the girls' bedtime is still 9pm), but ss could call his mom after 9pm. I would answer kids' line after 9pm (as we've had to do the few times their friends call after 9).

She called 9:20p. I explained the kids can't get phone calls after 9. I said I'd tell him she called and wants to hear from him.

He said he was done with his homework, but wants to do some robotics. He said he might call her tomorrow.

Bm called 9:40p. I again said they can't receive phone calls after 9. I told her he said he was done with his homework, and wanted to do something else.

She argued at length, "Can't you just put him on? Can't he answer the phone? Did you tell him?" I finally had to hang up.

I let him know she called again. He didn't seem interested in calling her. I left it up to him.

The interesting part to me is that I can be honest with her.

The onus may be back on ss. He likes to lie to her. He likes to try to get my girls and us to lie to her. Now the dilemma will be learning her son lies to her (about homework being done, how his homework load is enormous and we force him to work long hours on it, how extracurricular activities don't allow him time to do homework) and truly doesn't want to call her.

Ss seems relieved that I am keeping the phone calls from him during homework, and after 9pm. He has some control over being on the phone with her. He finished the robotics, and got ready for bed.

If she'd started talking to him after 9:40p, she probably would have kept him on for 40 minutes raging.

Ever since dh won custody summer '99, she's refused our suggestions for how to reach him. A couple of years ago she refused to call at the time of day we suggested. It seemed more important to her that she be able to call at ANY time that she chose. She won't email him. Dh told her she could call ss on his cell phone at robotics. She's never done it. It seems more important to her to bully her way in to the times we say she can't call.

BTW, ss got all A's (2 of them in soph honors classes) and 1 B in basketball.
