Stay Away: Stepdad Asks Real Dad to Stop Coming to School Events so That He Can Become Part of The Family

A man is in a heated dispute with his ex-wife’s new husband, who wants to ban the biological father from attending their children’s school events. The new husband said that the father’s presence is stopping him from becoming part of the family.

“I share two kids, Indie (10m) and Colbie (8f), with my ex-wife, Thora. We have remained very close, and she and I don’t follow a strict parenting plan,” the man said. “We do our best to have the kids see us both as much as possible.”

His ex-wife remarried

Thora remarried in 2021. The guy met her new husband, Michael, and thought he was a good guy. “He clearly loved Thora and was great with the kids, which is what Thora and I cared most about,” said the man.

Everything seemed okay

Overall, it was a pretty decent situation. Everyone seemed happy. There were zero arguments or tension. Essentially, everyone was acting like mature adults. But around last summer, things started to change. Or, to be more specific, Michael started to change.

“Indie was singing and playing an instrument at this little talent show his summer camp set up,” the man said. “Thora and I both went. So did Michael, who took the day off work. Michael did not look happy to see me. He was visibly tense.”

He thought nothing of it

The guy didn’t think much of it at first, presuming that Michael was having a bad day.

But it wasn’t just a one-off. The guy noticed that Michael seemed awkward whenever they were together at something for the kids. He asked Michael if he had a problem; Michael said no, everything was fine.

But it clearly wasn’t because this went on for weeks. And then, finally, Michael came out with it directly. He told the guy to stay away from some of the kid’s events.

“He said I’m getting in the way of him being a parental figure for the kids,” revealed the guy. “I told him he was a parental figure, and the kids loved him.

“He said they would never consider us equal until they saw him instead of me at some of these events. He said it’s important for them to be a stable family unit of four.”

The guy was shocked. And, unsurprisingly, he said no way. Michael got angry, accusing the guy of deliberately interfering with and disrupting the family. The guy told Micheal to shove it. These were his kids; nobody would make him stay away from them.

Michael called him a jerk. Since then, he’s been texting the dad a list of events he can’t go to. He’s trying to ban the guy from seeing his kids. The guy is pretty sure he’s in the right on this one. After all, he is their dad. 

He asked the internet

“Not the jerk,” wrote one person. “You and your ex are doing everything you can to put your kids first, don’t let this guy’s insecurities get in the way of that.”

“You are not the problem,” posted another. “DO NOT allow Michael to alienate you from your kids; it’s what he’s trying to do. Nip it in the bud ASAP.”
