I have an 11 year old boy, his father and I separated when he was 6 weeks old. We have both been with new partners since he was about 13 months old. I thought this would make the sistuation easier for him as he does not remember it being any other way. However over the last three years, he has been insistent on his father and reconciling.He says it is not fair his brother has two parents together and he doesn't. Over the last 12 months he has become really badd with the lies. It seems that every time he speaks he lies. He has taken to stealing money, his lattest theft was $100 from my car. His Dad's only answer is that I am not coping with him and he can go live with him. He does not accept that the childs behaviour is unacceptable. Or that the behaviour needs to be dealt with by the two of us. I will not agree to him going to live with his dad as I do not believe that will help our child as their are things that happen in his fathers house that I do not want him to see and be part of. I just want to help my son see right from young and make better choices.
