Advice needed please parents 😕
Answered 4 months ago
Advice needed please. Husband and I separated 6 months ago. Amicable enough separation. I have never stopped our two kids seeing him until now. He has chosen to take in a welfare child that I asked him not to due to the very likely prospect of the child having a trauma background and being violent or sexual. As I was raped as a child, I did not want to put my kids in unnecessary harms way. He did not heed my request even after I stated that the kids would never be staying overnight while the other child is in his care.
They are ok to go over and see him after school as long as all interactions are supervised. Am I in the wrong here?
Have an answer?
Personally, you would assume the agency who placed the child would ensure the child is safe for your exs and your kids to be around before placing the child in your ex care.
Perhapse this is something you should go to mediation about? Request that the child is watched by someone else when your children are there. They need proper supervision and obviously he cant do that....
I do not think you’re wrong to be concerned but you know your ex more than any of us. I’m sure he cares about and loves your children just as much as you do. Only you will know if he’s switched on and responsible enough to ensure there’s no “harm” imposed on any of the children not just the ones you share together.
Maybe you can talk to the case manager of said welfare child to find out more information and share your concerns. Good luck
My kids are 6 and 8. Welfare child is 8 and has had police called to his school on multiple occasions due to his violent nature.
Dad won’t supervise properly, prefers to let the kids “play and sort it out on their own” and watches tv or plays games on his phone.
Hope this helps to fill in the blanks!
