The step mum of the children sent me a long text saying the children talking negative about me to her and lots of other which some look like they have been twisted by her but she says they have said it to her which I do not believe. Should I show the children the message or ask them about it as they do not have a good relationship with step mum. Having issues with them not wanting to be around her or dad but bribery happening to entice them to go. Not sure if playing one off against other but wanted to get to the bottom of it.
Depending on how old the kids are would depend on how I would handle the situation. If it was me, I would definitely speak to them and see if they had any issues.
I have an 11 year old who I can be more open with about certain things and he has a better understanding of whats going in. However my 6 year old takes everything as a joke, although he will blurt things out that have been said to him so If someone was trying to make him lie he would say.
By what you have said it sounds like you are doing your best to keep the contact between your kids and their dad. If you think the step mum is causing frictions I would try and make arrangements for the kids to just see their dad without any involvement from the step mum.
