You are welcome.
to me ensuring that my boys learn how to respect others and committments is so important; especially now when they are seeing first-hand what disrespect results in.
not only are they going to miss having their father being here on a full-time basis, they have lost total respect for him and i can not even make a guess as to when that damage may be repaired if ever and eventually the youngest will understand exactly what happened. stbxh will have a very lonely life without his children and those are the consequences of his own actions.
