Hello fools!

I am so excited about this new board! My boyfriend and I are planning to get married. He has two boys, 8 and 12 years old. Although he does not have custody, we have the kids often.

We are experiencing all kinds of bumps in the road, from financial concerns about child support to bad grades, the grumpy ex-wife to dislike of vegetables.

So, I'm hoping that I'm not as alone as I feel...

My first question:

What is included in child support and what isn't? For example, the children's mother wants money for summer camp, bicycles, musical instruments, stuff like that. How do you handle "extra's" for the kids?
