I know, I know, join the club, right? :LOL
The man is obsessed with my ds hair. Yep, his hair. His hair is too long. It looks like a girls hair style. Over xmas he took him and cut his hair without mine or ds permission. Actually, against ds and mine wishes. He's 11 and his hair isnt long. It looks like every other teen boy or rock musician or skate boarder out there. He keeps it very clean and brushes it constantly. So whats the problem? My ex doesnt like it. Apparently peoples appearances can only be acceptable to my ex. But he's so generous, he told me I dont have to cut it exactly like his, but close to it. (his is cut like marine short)Gee thanks. He's become quite religious after marrying so I tried, "well, Jesus had long hair". But he just talks in circles. Its wrong. Why? Because it is. Why? Boys should have short hair. Why? Because they should.
I've told him as the primary parent I have the final say. (after an hour of explaining our reasoning and listening to his) So, he threatened to take me to court. Nice huh?
He's soooo controling! How did I live with someone like that? Why does he focus on such teensy things? It wouldnt kill him to let ds grow his hair long, but ds would be devastated (again) to have his head shaved.
Theres more. He wants to dye his hair. We have set a house rule no dyeing hair until 16. And then at that time, you can pick whatever you want - red, blue, pink whatever. But he says, no way. Only what he approves of. Why?
Why? Why Why?
Talking to him is no use. You cant reason with him at all. If you dont agree he just hangs up. And I've tried all my former customer service mgt skills. :LOL
Thanks for letting me vent.
How do you all deal with ex's and differing parenting?
