I was just wondering how often is normal for a father to contact their children? My stbx works away all the time, the last time he saw them was May 22. He told them he would call 2-3 times a week and he would come home as often as possible. So far he has called them 3 times and told them that he won't be coming home until the end of July. This because "I" don't want him to because of my holidays. I feel like he is using me as an excuse not to call. He told his mother that he doesn't want to call because I answer the phone. Well the only thing I have said when he called for the kids was, "Just a minute". Then when he called on Friday he told my oldest, 12, that he was going to come home sooner but Mom didn't want him to because of my vacation. I feel like he should call more often but just want some advice on whether I am just being controlling or not.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
