Hi there. I'm a mum of five, and have a bit of a situation regarding food and parenting through separation.
Wow, well it certainly isn't your job to uphold his beliefs or to force them on your children. His beliefs belong to him alone, and it sounds like he needs to learn that other people can and do make decisions for themselves that he may not agree with. I sounds like it is a bit of a power/control issue for him and he needs to let it go, but I'm not sure what you can do besides setting some boundaries and being very firm.
He gets to make decisions about his diet and the food in his home, and that is it, period. What you eat in your home is none of his business. What your daughters eat is also, ultimately, their decision.
Sorry I don't have any great advice, just to draw the line and make it very clear that he needs to back off and respect your household and your decisions as a parent.
Thanks for your input Oread. I guess I have to ignore all threats and stick to my guns, and set boundaries. Otherwise, my ex, like a child throwing a tantrum, will get his own way, and I don't want to set that as an example for my girls.
