Q I’ve been divorced for 1 ½ years. Since my divorce, my ex-wife and I will get together a few times a month with the kids (age 13 and 16) to talk about their schedule or other issues related to the kids. This may include pizza and a game of pool. My ex-wife and I are both in relationships, and my girlfriend and her boyfriend don’t join us when we do this. We’ve done this thinking it’s good for the kids to have the four of us talk in person. Do you think this is appropriate?
