Im trying to maintain regular phone contact with her dad since the split but more often than not she doesn’t really say much, other than hello and then gets distracted and doesn’t want to know.
This is annoying the ex and he finds it frustrating. I understand that. He actually hung up on her tonight! And I had an upset child to sort out!
It’s annoying for me as everyday I’m wasting my time trying to pursuade her to phone when I know it’s pointless and just disrupts the evening. Half the time he doesn’t answer first time anyway which means the moment she’s said yes has gone.
I’ve tried to keep it up to save taking more rubbish from the ex. He walked out in a not very nice way and now he moans he doesn’t get to spend much time with her.
What’s a reasonable amount of phone contact when it’s a once a week visit for a young child who doesn’t do well on the phone. Any advice?
I have a one minute chat with my kids rarely, maybe once a week if I’m lucky. No contact since April apart from that. Hope there’s no offence taken if I say he is lucky he has regular contact. I would forego the call if I was seeing them.
