My family is moving from Washington State to Kansas the end of Febuary and my 12 year old son want to stay living in Washington with his Dad so that he doesn't have to change schools. He wants to spend summer break, winter and spring break with me and my husband and the younger children. Then be in Washington with my ex husband during the school year. The plan was for him to move to Kansas and spend Summer break in Washington with his Dad and his Dad would visit in Kansas in the spring. I can't bare the thought of not having him move with us but also know that for his education he is better here because we will be moving alot with my husbands job. At 12 years old should he get to decide this or should I just say, I'm the parent and make him come with me?
