Children seem stressed
      02/13/12 12:01 PM

Just wanted to get some advice. My kids live with their mother and are with me every other weekend. They seem to be very stressed in her home. One is always having stomach issues there but doesn't have them at my house. The other child has made comments that she sleeps so much better at my house than at her mom's even though she takes melatonin(sp?) pills there. One of them is very vocal about hating their step-father. She went on a tirade about him right in front of her mother and the mother said "sorry you feel that way." It was an over the top tirade but I let it go figuring mom would deal with it but she didn't.
I can't really deal with their mother about these things because she disregards my opinions on all of it and then it just creates tension between us. The kids have asked to go see a counselor which is going to happen soon I hope. Just wandering if anyone has any ideas how to deal with this. I would love to ask all kinds of questions about what is happening at home, but I don't want to be percieved as snooping or spying.
