Colver Posted February 19, 2018 Share Posted February 19, 2018 My significant other has two children a girl that is 20 and a boy that is 16 she was a stay at home mom and married to what i would say a narcissist. They had a terrifying divorce and was in court for many years and he was able to get custody. She tries to communicate with her kids but kids often text and say some horrible things back to her. Recently her ex texted and said please call your son he is using drugs and has tried to hurt himself because he thinks you abandoned him. she tried but her son would not respond she was very concerned and tried many times to contact him. When he finally texted her back he said some very grown up awful things then blocked her. I feel the father may have coached him and seems to be perpetuating the alienation. I am divorced with kids of a similar age and can not even fathom how a parent can do this, I would never utter a disparaging remark about my ex in front of my kids. I have no idea how to help her, her kids are in virginia and she lives in Idaho (she moved to get away from stalking abusive ex). She fears that her sons anger and dissonance will only get worse over time and feels powerless when dealing with her ex. He withholds items like phone numbers and mail to kids unless he gets something in return. He seems to know how to push her buttons to get her to react irrationally (that's why she moved and tried no contact) I just think this is abusive to the children and see that it could push my significant other to harm herself. What can I do does she have recourse. Link to comment
