You can't force your ex to send a third party to pick up the kids. You also can't force him to be polite. Repeatedly texting him about either of those issues is pointless. There is really nothing to discuss.

The only thing you can do is to make choices that will reduce, though not eliminate, the possibility of conflict. You've been given two good suggestions - do the handoff at a police station, or bring your own third party to the handoff. Why not do one or both of those? Neither option guarantees that things will go smoothly, but nothing you can do will guarantee that ex will behave well.

Regardless of what you choose to do, I think you could cut down your text communication by about 90%.
