Hi,

I'm new to the board (and found it quite happily). My kids are in public school but we will be homeschooling in the summer (I formally homeschooled prior to my divorce).

I understand your need to have time alone. I know you need a break from your son. But I have to caution the benefit of forcing your ex to take your kids. If he has no interest, which clearly he doesn't, and you force it the house will not be peaceful. Clearly your ex does not want to bother, but he will with his wife and church. That is really hurtful for kids and teenagers are notoriously intuned with hypocracy.

I think forcing your ex to take your kids will turn them off to their dad and whatever faith he professes (because frankly he's a hypocrite).

Can your parents or his parents help out at all? That would be great. Or what about a good friend, i.e. spending the night once a month (and vice versa).

Best of luck.

Melissa
