Their dad is not interested in any parenting issues unless it is something that makes him look good, or makes life easier or less expensive for him. I do not expect it to go my way all the time. The boys and I have open communication about these issues and the things I've talked about are one's they've brought up because they are distressed with the situation. Yes I have until very recently been the only invested parent, so their views are more to what I've taught. They feel they have no voice. Their dad puts on a good show about being 'respected', he is a member of our federal law enforcement and his mentality displays this. The boys fear his responses, which have become much more severe since he has married. This being said from your response it sounds like unless I can quit my job and commit to this full time, we're pretty much screwed. He is not interested in any meetings. Thanks anyways.
