The man explained that he was furious at his wife for her insensitivity to the matter as she went on to tell the children that he does not want them in his life, an assertion he says is false and has nothing to do with the matter at hand.

He further explained that having a child with ADHD and ODD makes the situation all the more difficult to handle, and he hated the pressure he was facing.
