Poor you!

When you say he's often late, how much time is typical?

If he's usually late but then shows up eventually, calling the police seems OTT. And if anything had happened (I don't know what's going through your mind but I'm guessing you're thinking an accident or something?) then someone would have got in touch with you.

Are you ok op? What are you thinking of doing now? Call them if it will calm you.

I'm sorry you were worried but glad they're all okay.

Maybe set some guidelines down?

bossmum41 Sun 23-Mar-14 19:00:38

ha I have tried he just likes to be in control.

He can't be where your DCs are concerned. Especially if he knows you'll call the police next time. Your DCs are not toys to be played games with. I'm sure you're strong with him in that but maybe he needs a reminder.

I am glad they're okay though thanks

Glad they're ok.

Keep a record of all these incidents.

If he picks them up from yours, go out and 'accidentally' be late so he has to wait for you....
My ex was consistently late picking up and bringing back until I did this - he didn't like having a taste of his own medicine.

ive done that a few times he just doesn't wait x
