Any body have any ideas/advice on how to get along with my daughters fathers? I read books, go to my own therapist, heck, we even tried coparenting therapy that failed miserably. Every time I turn around there is a new conflict and if there isn't a current conflict he will bring up old ones. I made the decision to not engage when past things are brought up but it really gets under my skin when his memory of a conflict is distorted or just completely wrong.
We communicate through email so I have proof of lots of things, I have even forwarded him things he has said but he tried to even twist those words around to place on the blame on me.
I really just to get along with this guy. We moved back to his home state after being gone for 7 years, I cancelled CS and now we are doing week on week visitation, he is involved in everything he chooses to be involved in. School, sports, friends, everything. I just don't know what else to do to make him feel satisfied, I don't even know that he can feel satisfied. He's bipolar
and it is making things so difficult! I keep trying because my daughter loves him and loves spending time with him,I really wish it would come to a point that there wasn't such an "air" of stress when we have to come together on things, or be in the same room together. He is just so angry with me and I don't even know why. Help!
