No calls in 4 days. And when she did call last, she had forgotten that she had talked to the kids the night before.
How do you deal with sporadic contact? When Clayton gets bored, he asks to call her. Will never asks if he can call her. We never tell them no, except if we're about to do something (like dinner, showers, bedtime). I just don't understand how she can not want to talk to them.
I am so sorry to hear that. I am still trying to figure that one out. My oldest son ( well he is my DSS), hasn't talked to his BM in a long time. She doesn't call, doesn't even utilize her visitation. Last time he saw her was at Christmas and only because her aunt came to get him.
We don't do anything. DH says it is her loss not ours that she is not in his life. He used to ask to call her and we would let him but she never kept minutes on her phone so now he doesn't even ask at all. I feel so bad for him.
DSD's BioMom called DSD for her birthday in August and I can't remember the last time she called before that. She's called to make visitation arrangements around holidays but doesn't ask to talk to DSD. DSD has called her a few times lately wanting to go over to spend the night. But BioMom calling her... not much at all. My DS's dad calls once every few weeks to talk to him. It used to be really rare but he's gotten better since I remarried. The whole jealousy thing. I much prefer to deal with DSD's biomom than my ex though.
My husband's ex goes a week, week and a half without claling sometimes. then she'll call daily for a little while, then every other day, then back to a week, week and a half without calls. I'm fairly certain she avoids the kids' calls. As, she texts my husband right after, usually, then claims her phone is messing up.
