Hello pre covid my son always took his overnight bag for contact with me in to school with him. Covid restrictions prevented this, so I had to start going to my ex girlfriends parents to pick up or drop off the bag, obviously not ideal as they hate me and I’m not to keen on them, OR my ex’s boyfriend would do the hand over at the school gate. Lately my ex has started turning up to do the hand over and this is really not suitable to me, I don’t really want to see her at all, as it causes friction and upsets my son. I’ve spoke to my son age 8 and he just said the bag is heavy but he had no problem taking it in to school, I told my ex this but she’s having none of it and wants us to keep meeting at the school gate on the days my sons is with me. As I said pre covid he always took it in to school and he has no problems doing that now.
what can I do about this?
I think you should arrange an appointment to speak to the headteacher to discuss these issues and how it is causing tensions. I don't understand why your ex is present at school if your due to pick up or drop your son that day.
Neither do I. But since she has started turning up there has been nothing but grief. She worked at the school, so I’m always a bit cautious of speaking to them, but if need be I will ask them about this. I’m sending another email reply to her this morning as I’m due to pick my son up later. My son has no problem taking his bag to school, she has given no reason why he can not take it in to school.
thank you for reply
