My ex husband (only been divorced for 2 months) lives in another state. So he doesn't see his kids very often at all. But he will sometimes text and ask me to have the kids call him. I have tried encouraging them to talk to him. But they are not interested. Mainly because they are very young still, and speaking on the phone isn't even an interest to them. Since they have no interest in speaking to him when he asks me to have them call.... do I HAVE TO make them call him? The only thing our court papers say is that they can be contacted until 8 pm. Do I have to make them call and talk to him, if they aren't wanting to? Also, Because he lives over 700 miles away, the kids do not have a close relationship with him anymore anyway. So this isn't helping them to want to speak to him either.
