Yeah, I'm trying to (gently) find out whether it's because the girlfriend doesn't like it, the x doesn't like it, or the 8 year old is exaggerating. I hate to pump the kids for info because I don't want them to feel they're being interrogated. Heaven knows they've been through enough!
This is the ow girlfriend who has a record for child endangerment, 4 kids with 4 different men, and recently ran her 10 year old over with her car. Not a good situation!
