    Default Ex husbands.......Rant

    OMG my ex husband and father of my 2 kids ( 18 and 15) is being the biggest w**ker ever.

    DS 18 is about to finish HS and go out into the world.
    He hasnt made up his mind as to what he wants to do although he has been talking about getting an apprenticehip as a plumber and going to TAFE..

    My exh lives interstate and he rings me at least 2x a week to tell me what i should be doing in relation to DS..

    I need to vent.. last night he rings me and tells me im a bad mother who doesnt care about DS and his future... WHY ? because i wont download, fill in and take the TAFE form to the local TAFE for DS.. I am still so angry that he told me i was a bad mother b/c i wouldnt do what he wanted me to do..

    Firstly Mr 18 has to get an apprenticeship THEN apply to TAFE,, but no thats not good enough for my exh...

    he wants DS GFs ph number so he can make her tell DS what to do.. I refused to give out her number without her permission and when i rang her last night to tell her she said she doesnt want him to have it and she doesnt want to get involved,.., EXH needs to stop trying to control MR 18..

    Grrrrrrrrrr............. I am so over the 2x a week ph calls... I am going to write EXH an letter and tell him no more contact in regards to DS ... sadly I still have to talk to him about DD but only for 2 more years hahaha

    Exh ARE PAINS IN THE YOU KNOW WHERE

    Yes Xh's are pains but that's why they're ex's haha.

    If I were you I'd tell him that if he starts talking about anything to do with tafe and DS then you'll hang up on him. Then do it. He'll soon get the msg.

    Interesting approach to empowering his son to take responsibility for himself... Very annoying Louise41.

    Surely your ex needs to realise that at 18 years of age his son is also able to have a direct conversation with him, rather than talking about him?

    so he is super dad by parenting from interstate??

    sigh, i dread the time when DS is approaching decision time for uni and stuff as i know my ex will stick his nose in and start bossing everyone around.

    Stick to your guns..encourage but don't take over. Mr 18 will work it out and it will be him working it out and not still being treated like a child.

    If that were my son i would be sitting down with him going through job ad's (well, once to ensure he knew what he was doing) and making sure he knew how to use mycareer.com, helping with a cv etc...but ds would be doing the work and making the decisions!

    You are a good mother! I work at a tertiary institution and the amount of parents who want to act and control on behalf of their adult children is astoundingly and quite frankly doesn't teach them anything! And legally we can't discuss anything with them anyway due to privacy laws!

    He sounds like an idiot.... Why isn't he encouraging his son to do things for himself?
