I felt like my "counterpart" was almost ready for fear-biting, yet I did not think I gave hims enough reason or provocation. His threats came seemingly out of nowhere, but I realize his reservoir of hatred and dissatisfaction is almost brimming...

I agree. On the one hand "a dog that barks never bites". On the other hand - this court thing is really on his mind and that it slipped where it should not have is what worries me the most.
I had to deal with my own fear - there was one person who told me I was courageous and my jaw dropped... But he was right - I am not afraid of people, of what will become of me... I know I will survive.
Thank you - I'll be brief - the comment does not let me go into too much detail - while discussing how we can teach our son to prepare for tests in French - my ex told me everything he thought about me and said "I'll take you to court if you don't co
I see...he is your "ex." Well, he's either still very much in love with you and is angry you are no longer his....or he feels the need to assert his parental control. Either way. Let it go. unless he continues this.
Sorry, I hadn't read the above. For an ex to say something like that over your child's French lessons, I agree with fpherj48. Was it this type of hot-headedness that caused you marital problems to begin with? Good luck. If need be, get legal help.
Yes, threats and ultimatums were the norm. I have to admit that I lived in fear all those 16 years. This time he laughed in "my face" - it was over the phone, but I could not just get the connection - how to teach our son responsibility and COURT?
A few minutes ago I came from the school I work at and coincidentally, a father came in and told us not to give his ex any information about their kids. He's got custody. His eldest (my student) is not coping very well.
In the end, all the conflict is very damaging to the kids. I am not a fan of any war - between parents - you can never win a war just like you can never win an earthquake.
Here's hoping that a new day dawning grants you newfound strength and wisdom as to handle the situation with even better tact so that you and your child can find peace. All the best to you.
