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.

Bm calls the kids' line 7:40pm, my daughter tells her he's doing homework.  Bm snarls, "Has he eaten dinner yet?!?" (ss has sometimes eaten late cuz he didn't finish the first part of homework yet, and complained to bm.  Her objections don't change when we feel the need to impose the boundary).

My daughter replies yes, bm hangs up.

The girls and I talk that anymore than 2 questions the kids are to hand the phone over to me.

8:15pm bm calls dh's cell phone complaining that no one's answering on the kids' line.  He asked her why she didn't call our home phone.  She didn't really answer.  Dh says they might be ignoring the beep, he'll tell them, she can call back in five minutes.  

They weren't ignoring the beep - they were on and off the phone between phone calls and never heard a beep.  We have the girls stay off the phone, and tell ss to answer the phone. Bm calls again and talks to ss.

We aren't willing to do that again.

The girls and I talk about beep etiquette - respond to the beep, and if you're ready to give up the other phone conversation, tell her just a moment, make sure ss is done with homework, and you can give him the phone.

If you aren't ready to give up the other conversation, tell her you're on the other line and you'll tell ss she called. If she insists on talking to ss, repeat again the same statement.  A third time, hang up.

Ss is allowed to answer the phone when he's not doing homework, but most of the time, he chooses not to.

Dh won't answer cell phone when he's home, can't identify the #, and bm might be calling.

If she calls our home line, and says no one answered the kids' phone, we'll suggest she wait and call the kids' line again cuz they don't ignore the beep.  Or if bm says the girls answered, we'll ask what they said, tell bm "that's fine, they'll tell him," be willing to repeat it a 2nd time, and then hang up if necessary.

I'm going to tell the girls and remind dh that we're going to only say we'll tell ss she called and that she wants to hear from him.  We won't be telling her we can't promise he'll call.
