I know I have a couple of readers who are therapists and I know I have readers who are absolutely fabulous parents. I need your expertise.
I've written countless times about Jakes father and what an asshat (thanks BloggingMamaAndrea!) he can be to deal with. The most recent difficulty has been that Jakes says he's not on his ADHD medication but I cannot get Asshat to answer my repeated emails as to what medication Jakes is actually taking. Then of course, Asshat sends me a receipt for a refill of the ADHD medication that Jakes says he's not taking. So, thanks to the fact that Asshat doesn't understand the concept of co-parenting I'm clueless about what medication Jakes is taking.
What I'm looking for from my wonderful readers: Information on Co-parenting throughout a divorce. I did a quickie search on Amazon to see what they have to offer in the way of books but nothing jumped out at me as intriguing. I was pretty upset when I did that search and could have been biased. I'll check it out again.
What I am hoping to do with this information: I want to be able to present a plan to the courts detailing how Asshat and I should be working together to co-parent Jakes. If I have a reasonable plan to follow and its part of a court order that he has to follow it, we should be able to work together or I will be able to take him to court.
So, any information, books, websites or anything at all that you want to share or direct me to will be greatly appreciated! I want what's best for my child and as much as I HATE Asshat, I am willing to put that aside for what is best for Jakes.
You guys are wonderful and I know you'll come through for me. HUGS!
PS - Wonder why spell checker doesn't recognize "Asshat". Is too a word!
PSS - I apologize if I offended you with my use of "Asshat" but it fits him to a T. If you don't know the back story to Asshat and want to know, message me and I'll give you chapter and verse. ;)
