Great advice. I will try that next time! She does think she has more rights than I do since she is CP. It's been a struggle to co-parent with her.

I am very concerned about the parent alienation, and am working hard to be positive, upbeat, and I never say anything negative about the mother.
I do this 100% when they are with me. I will NEVER say anything bad about NJ in front of them - even when they tell me things. I will not sugarcoat anything by saying, "oh, it's normal to forget to pick you up"... but I don't go beyond that. I just continue to document everything.
