I'm divorced and my ex-spouse, father of my son does not support my decisions when my son is not behaving and not doing his homework. My son is 12, he lies about various things. He claims he forgets to bring his homework home, etc. I'm afraid that my son will grow up to be disrespectful of authority figures, get in trouble because he thinks he can do whatever he wants. I took my tv and video games out of living room and put them in the basement. My kid goes down the basement to "do his homework". We have mediation coming up soon and i'm likely to not give up too much visitation time, etc. because my ex goes into anger rages when I try to talk to him about my son's behavior, lies, etc. It's easy for a kid to lie when his dad won't communicate with me. Any ideas what to do? I had to call the police on my ex at least 4 times in the past 5 years and tried to get an order for protection against him but judge denied it. I had my kid in psychotherapy a few years ago, but my ex made that a negative experience because my ex wanted copies of all my kids medical records. I feel that my kid needs some type of counseling or support group but what type?
