I am completely independent taking care of my children. My immediate family disowned me and my ex husbands family did too. I have family far away that want to help me but I need to gain access to leave. My ex is trying to control me when i have the kids or not. This has been going on for over three years.

You have so much on your plate with little support. Keep reaching out here and to others for help. Also, when in a similar situation, I found books and Christian counseling to be very helpful. Ron Deal's resources and books like Single Mom by Angela Thomas were extremely informative and practical! Hope these help and again, please keep reaching out to others.

My son's "biological father" has visitations twice a week for three hours each time . There is a court order in place for this however he is constantly threatening to go to court and change the order. My son is almost always unsettled after visitations (only nine months old) and his "biological father" is still trying to control me through my son by attempting to get different visitation days, it's a daily struggle with him. Unfortunately even with a court order, some men will still try to control you and your child, especially if they were abusive to you, mine was.

I'm not sure if I can help but I was a young single mom to two boys for a very long time. wasn't until recently I found a man that wanted to take care of us. but I didn't have any support from anyone. I worked a lot, was working overtime 5cm dilated waiting to have my second one any day. it was so tough. I was 19 when I had my first and my second last year. amd just so you know it takes a strong strong woman to be able to provide for their children alone. I have been in a battle with my first sons father-who wont grow up and take on responsibilities like I have. I do not let him see him or have any contact...long story short-he isn't a proper rolemodel for my son. Do you guys have any custody arrangments or have been to court for that? if not, maybe you should do so. I know it costs a lot of money to that's why I haven't, but you can actually talk to a lawyer for free, get someone elses opinion. and does he see your children or pay any support? because in order to be able to do as u please with your kids without him controlling your every move, I would suggest taking it the legal way. because if its on paper, he has no say. I know its easier said than done but it could help.
