A Serious Lack of Respect

If you read my recent blog post you know that my step-children have been subjected to inappropriate sexual comments and behavior due to the living environment at their biological mother’s home. It appears that her new husband’s brother has made it a habit of getting drunk at their home and saying sexually inappropriate things to and in front of my step-children. Of course this isn’t happening anymore because the kids are away from that place now, but it has happened in the past and it was just brought to our attention last night. Nevertheless, it has happened on more than one occasion in the past.

After getting all of the facts from my step-children, we filed a police report. My husband than called his ex to inform her that a police report had been filed and that they may be contacting her. We thought it would be the right thing to do. Now, what did I expect was going to happen when this call was made? Honestly, I figured she’d do her usual “it’s not my fault” bullshit song and dance. I did, however, expect her to give some sort of reaction to the fact that her children were subjected to this shit. Even to my surprise, the woman acted like she couldn’t have cared less.

So basically, this woman invites people over to her home and they all get drunk out of their minds and the kids are exposed to inappropriate behavior and when some pervert says disgusting things to them and in front of them, she could care less. The only word out of her mouth about the entire incident was “okay.” Like she really didn’t give a damn.

How sick do you have to be to not give a shit about your kids having been exposed to this type of thing? Well, my husband is starting to think that a change in custody isn’t enough. I, for one, am not disagreeing with him this time. If he wants her parental rights terminated by the state, so be it. I had hoped it wouldn’t come to that because she would be at risk of losing the child she has with her current husband, but if this is the type of thing she does and she doesn’t care about how her children could be hurt emotionally or physically by her actions, then maybe she shouldn’t have parental rights to any children.

It is a parent’s job to keep their children from harm. Actually creating an environment that puts them in harm’s way is inexcusable. I would be more apt to help her if she would, for once, be willing to step up to the plate and admit what she’s done and make some serious changes. As things stand right now, I am actually worried that she is a danger to these kids due to her lack of common sense and disregard for their safety. We will have to see how things play out.
