Get yourself back into mediation or even better, family counseling. You might need the help of your lawyer to guide things along.


You can lead a horse to water . . . .

She may never get it. The thing to do si get this matter back into court -- you'll have to go through mediation to get there -- and make it known to the court what is going on.

It sounds like her actions amount to abuse. You need to act for your child's well-being.

Try mediation, and if that doesn't work, get the matter into court.
