I have a question. I have a 6 year old son who will be turning 7 in just a few months. My problem that i am having is that my son does not want to speak to his father or see him. I moved from california back to chicago because i and the father just did not get along. His father wanted to be involved with his friends then be involved with his family. I left with my son before my son turned 2 years of age. My son does not know his father at all. They have spoken on the phone many times but as my son gets older is has gotten to be worse. My son does not want to speak with him at all. His dad has said somethings to him that were inappropriate such as name calling and that is when the communication stopped with my son. I don't feel that i can force my son to speak with him if he chooses not to do so. However his father tells me that i should make him get on the phone and speak to him. What do i do? His father has not seen him in 5 years.
