Guess it’s time to start pounding my soap box again. It’s been 10 years and I STILL have not gotten my mother’s silver back. This crap that my ex thinks it’s his place to decide who should get the silverware is just that – crap. The silver was NOT given to him, it was given to me. It is MY mother’s. He is not related to her by blood – what part of EX does he not understand? I want it back AND I don’t want him getting angry at Megan because I do.
I’m tired of him taking things out on Megan when someone says something negative to him about his “parenting.” Throwing money at a child does NOT make you a responsible or even a good parent, period. All Megan wants is for him to spend a little more time with her than he does. She comments that he is spending less and less time with her and more and more time working. She says she feels like all he does is work. Her uncle is more of a father to her, he takes her bowling, to the movies, out to eat – the things she wishes her father would do.
After 10 years he still doesn’t understand – all his children ever wanted was his time. All he has succeeded in doing is to teach them to equate money to love. And to think the more money I spend on my children the better a parent I am. Sorry, but all that does is make for greedy spoiled children that throw temper tantrums when they don’t get what they want.
