Does anyone know if I can take out a prohibited steps order stopping my ex-husband leaving my children in his sister''s care? I have serious concerns about behaviour they are witnessing whilst at her house.
The children are 7 and 5 years old. I have raised the concerns with my ex and have said the children are not to be left there but this request has repeatedly been ignored. His sister''s partner is an ex con who I''ve found has been quite aggressive towards his sister in front her 5 year old daughter which has happened on numerous occasions. Also a video was recently posted on a social networking site which had been filed in his sister''s house of the boyfriend and another family member shouting at her daughter and another child using foul language (i.e. f**kin punch him, f**kin punch him in the bo**ocks") encouraging them to beat up their grandad albeit toy fighting but still not language I wish for my children to hear. This language and behaviour is regularly used within the household and I find it unacceptable for children to witness at such a young age. You really need to see the video for yourself to realise how bad it is. When I''ve raised these concerns I have been sent abusive text messages from his sister.
There are many on wiki that know far more than i about contact issues so i hope others add to this, from what i know a PSO is unlikely to be successful, if the issues is swearing then i`m afraid many parents and family members do, sad but true.
Its not just the swearing I''m concerned about, its the aggressive behaviour which the boyfriend has been exhibiting in front of her 5 year old as well as my ex-mother in law. I just don''t want my children witnessing that type of behaviour as they haven''t even witnessed me and my ex arguing and they''d be devestated if it happened in front of them. I just don''t feel my children will be safe whilst being looked after in that house. They also live in a terraced house off a very busy main road and she''s been letting them play out on the front eventhough unsupervised, I have also raised concerns about this in the past. My worries do seem quite minor but I don''t want to have to be worried that they are safe when they are not in my care and seen as though my husband has been brought up around this behaviour he thinks its perfectly normal!
