Thanks for the notes.

The other one is we used to go to the match together a lot but the matches usually sit outside my contact time. I told ex he wanted to go and would she mind if I got him a season ticket for his birthday throughout May and June but she didn''t respond. I had no choice but to get it on the basis that''s what he wants. In court I may suggest that she could go to a couple of matches a year with him if she would be willing to be a little flexible. She doesn''t like football but seeing your kids love something makes it fun.

My daughter has started taking an interest now so I will be taking her as well soon.

You are joking, right?

If she feels about football the way I (and many females) do, she will be packing them and giving them to you for the matches, thanking her good fortune she doesn''t have to endure such misery and pain for almost two hours. :P

Joking aside, this is an excellent bonding opportunity for you with the kids, to have something you all enjoy doing together!

Stick to the Universal Truth and claim that your daughter is just an exception to the gender rule. ;-)

I used to hate it when my dad took me for cricket... hated it. soooo boring. my parents never divorced by the way.
I hate football too :)

I hope my girl likes fishing, flying in a microlight aircraft and tinkering with cars (minor mechanic work such as oil service etc) ;)

Again, this is about the children.

I play football with my kids - boy, girl, mum, dad - it has nothing to do with it.
Footbal is an example because thatis what your son wants to do and it is great.

I would be very concerned if he always loved football and then suddenly didn''t want to do it anymore.

It is what kids want and need.

An activity such as football will be very good for your son in so many ways. It will help with his physical, mental, social and emotional well being.

The poor child is obviously traumatised and importance must be given.
Nevermind scoring point.

Hope this gets sorted soon for his sake.

Hi All

A meeting was held at school yesterday with nurses, etc.
Mum walked out and siad none of these private matters should be being discussed at school as the kids are not having difficulties there.

She ripped into me with a lot of allegations of me making them watch scary movies, exaggerating their problems, etc.

In a nutshell the nurse said my concerns were valid and that my son is clearly showing signs of anxiety. They are going to visit mum separately to try and get her on side, as it would obviuously help if we are all pulling int eh same direction. If mum does not agree to the referral they are making it anyway.

I actually got asked if I need any support as well - that makes a nice change!

So - good news - my son may get some help and be able to express himself. I imagine CAFCASS and Court will now have to take what CAMHS say seriously....

Does anybody ahve any views on how this may impact on court proceedings?

Thanks Mark:unsure:
