You don't use a recording of the children talking about what happened as evidence that it happened. You use it as evidence that they told you something, in the event your ex claims you are lying about what the children told you, or claiming that you coached them to say it.

Other than that, my best advice would be for you to reassure your children that they can tell you anything, and they will not get in trouble for it. If something is bothering them, they should always feel they can come to you for problem-solving assistance, not for criticism.

It's like the old thing about telling your kids never to get in a car with a driver who has been drinking. They should KNOW they can always call you at 2am to come get them, and you will do so, not yell at them for being out drinking.
