Still no word on anything.  I did finally get to sign up for the court ordered co-parenting classes. Start wednesday night. Not thrilled because I co-parented my booty off with him. I had a hard time scraping up the cost of this class, it ended up being a third of my monthly income :/   It is 6 weeks long, and I will miss tucking my boys in bed one night each week for it.  I also don't understand how you can co-parent with an abusive other party, and how this came about since this whole case is about child abuse on his part. All I can think of that is positive in this is at least we will be given the same information.  Hope all is well with everyone. *hugs* to you all.

I am so sorry that you are going through ALL of this.

It just doesn't seem right at all...:(...

I spoke too soon :/ Haven't heard from him in over 2 months. My first night at co-parenting class, he decides to call for the children. I am also conflicted over what is being said in the class and what I am learning in DV counseling. In the past, I have done what is being said in the class, but am learning how to be more assertive and set clear boundaries in DV counseling, which is not considered co-parenting. I'm exhausted and confused yet again. *hugs* back at you nightangel.

(hugs) so sorry to hear how rough this has been and i hope things get better quickly. As to  how to co-parent with an abuser I have no idea because thankfully I never had to and sadly have never heard of it working out to well
