DD wouldn't come out of her classroom last Friday as she knew she was going to her Dads for the weekend. She was in there in tears with her teacher. If I say something she will cop it from her Dad .....he has also told her "Don't tell Mummy anything bad that happens here".
So I focus on them and trying to help them deal with the horrid person he is

the other thing I noticed is that when DS is with his dad! he won't talk to me or hug me, he stands there stiff as a board and looks very uncomfortable. As soon as his dad leaves, he seems to exhale and relax. Hate that his dad makes him so uptight, it's not good for him.

No they are lucky to even get a phone call. The last time he said he would ring, he never did, the last time they saw him was 8 months ago (for 3 days) and before that it was 13 months since they had seen him.
He does live in the next country, but still majorly slack and uninvested.

My kids don't even get a phone call on their birthdays or Christmas. Then he gets all hurt when they don't ring him for Father's Day.

Some real deadbeats out there, our kids deserve better!
I have been been blasted for not getting DS to call him on Father's Day morning as soon as he woke up, never mind that he spent the hours between 12 pm and 5 pm with him on that day.. Man I copped it over that!
DS and I have a great relationship thankfully, he has apologised to me for being strange when his dad is there. It stings but I can't be upset about it. If it makes his time with his dad more stress free, I'm happy for him to do it..

No way. DD is almost three and has never received a birthday or Christmas present... Although I should be surprised. In the four years we were together, Ex bought me a present once...

My ex lives in Vic and we live in Qld so he has only bothered to see the kids once in 3 years that we've been split up. So yeah that once he bought our daughter a bday pressie and an xmas pressie and our son an xmas pressie but no bday pressie. Every other year he gives them nothing.

Birthdays, yes, they usually get something. Christmas no, that has now, since last xmas, gone to the way side. Because he doesn't see them for the whole xmas holidays, so the kids don't have any xmas presents to open when they go back to see him in Feb. If I have the kids on the week of fathers day, he doesn't want them, and won't even answer the phone if I ask the kids if they want to call him. Same with xmas day, I ask if they want to call him, DS does, DD won't. But he usually doesn't answer his phone. WTF is with that ? I just shake my head sometimes, and leave it be. The kids will or have worked it out what he is like. So sad
