Lord help me.
My son is 5 and I have sole parental responsibility of him.
What on earth do you do when your child comes home saying Dad says that I can move in with him when I'm 12. I want to live with Dad.
Backstory, my ex buys our sons love. He can never just be with our boy, rather he has to spend enormous amounts of money and takes a lot of time off of work to shower our son in things and events, such as drag races, monster trucks and the movies. My little guy thinks that this means daddy REALLY loves him.
My ex won't even let our son walk. He is carried everywhere!!! No joke!
I don't really know what I'm asking, all I know is my son believes things equals love and is under the impression that if he lives with his father every day he will be taken to new amazing places. When in reality I left his father because he was more interested in what's on his computer screen than his family.
I know my sons father loves him, I don’t ever doubt that, it’s great, I never want to take that from either of them, we don’t have a good relationship and I know that makes things harder. He recently took my son to his home town nearly 5 hours away from me WITHOUT CONSENT. He breeched court orders. But What really bothers me is when my son comes home and says things like he wants to move to Canberra (he has no idea where this is and has never been) because it’s 10 hours away from you. THOSE WERE HIS EXACT WORDS, and what’s worse is Canberra is 10 hours from where I live, or
My son loves life with me, he’s treated as a human being, someone capable of making his own choices, where he does swimming and can help cook dinner (which is what he loves most) he can be himself. He comes home so exhausted because he hasn’t had a chance to stop, when he is with his dad he only eats his favourite meals (maccas and lollies) he is pandered to with no consequences he gets what he wants when he wants even when this affects his fathers step daughters. I have been to court 8 times in 3.5 years, each and every time he took me, to the point the judge gave me the sole PR because she saw he is just trying to gain control again and again.
