Visitation and restraining order

I have some questions about visitation right.
I have a restraining order against my ex for myself and our children. My ex must stay 300 yards away from my house and the kids' schools, and he cannot contact us "except for brief and peaceful contact as required for court-ordered visitation".
I have the sole custody of our kids but we do not have particular visitation order on the divorce paper, but he used to see the kids some time.
Now he wants to modify the visitation rights for himself. Since there's a restraining order, he cannot see the kids now, but he wants to try to get the court-ordered visitation right to see them.
He asked his sister to deliver his letter to the kids. He wants the kids to write him back saying that they want to see him. He wants to use their wish to prove that he needs to get court ordered visitation right.
I do not want my kids to be involved this issue and I think that it is a violation of the retraining order if he sends a letter to them.
My questions are -
1) Can he see the kids because he is a father even if there's a restraining order for the kids?
2) Can he file for visitation modification and be able to see them even if there's a restraining order?
3) If I am requested to attend mediation, do I have to see him?
Thank you in advane for your support...
