I'm at my wit's end with my Ex-husband. We were officially divorced in June and we were separated almost 8 months. I can truly say that we hate each other. We've had a toxic marriage the last 2 years. The last straw was when he cheated on me for the 2nd time and that's why we divorced. The hatred really kicked in when he found out I started dating one of his friends for the last three months.

Here's the problem. Our son is going into Kindergarten and we can't even be in the same room as each other. We each met the teacher separately and I swear he badmouthed me to her. He also booked some play dates with kids and parents of our son's classmates. I found out through a friend of a friend that he was saying to the parents at the play date that they need to watch their husbands around me. He told one of the mom's that we were divorced because I cheated on him with one of his friends and that I have broken up a few other marriages in the past.

I have tried reaching out to some of the mothers but they have ignored my emails and phone calls. I ran into one of the mom's at Walgreen's and she totally blew me off.

I don't know what to do. I've never cheated or slept with a married man. My boyfriend is a wonderful man who I love with all my heart. How do I get these parents and the teachers to believe me and understand that I'm not some evil person my Ex has described to them.

Also how am I supposed to cope when it comes to dealing with my Ex this school year?
