I got divorced over a year ago. My ex was never a big part of my kids lives, even when living at home. So when he did finally move out it wasn't so bad for my kids. Their lives didn't change much. They didn't change much. Until recently. About a year ago when we started the everyother weekend thing my kids hated going they didn't want to go. Now they still complain, but are resigned to the fact this is how it is. My ex and I have different parenting styles, and by different I mean I parent he doesn't. He makes them stay up late so they will sleep in in the morning. He drives around in the car with them doing so called work when he only has them for 2 hours a week. He doesn't supervise them at all. I could go on but this is already too long. The problem is. My son just started 4th grade. He is getting good grades for the most part, but is getting in trouble for not focusing, being distracted, not paying attention, Im getting the same behavior at home. I've tried everything I can think of. Nothing seems to work: threats, punishment, groundings. I've tried talking with him to see if anything is bothering him. Always says no problems. ????
