I've recently been in contact with my son's father through emails. It's been about a year since I've heard from him. My son is 4, and hasn't seen his father since he was 1.5. I've talked about him being a part of his sons life, but he doesn't send birthday cards, no phone calls, no child support. Instead tattooing his sons name on his neck to join a gang was the best way to honor his kid. Ugh, urks me! He's been in and out of jails and treatment. I left him because CPS was involved for abuse and they were threatening to take my son away if I didn't leave. He has diseases, he is bipolar and schitzo-effective, very manipulative. I believe there is good in everyone and I've seen it in my sons father from time to time. Now my sons father wants to meet up at his dads place and spend time with my son and myself. I don't think it is in my son's best interest to get teased like that. It's either all or nothing.. a consistent basis or I'd rather spare my childs feelings and not introduce him to his dad. My sons father has no means to come see us 2 and half hours away. No car or drivers license, doesn't work, is just lame. And I would have the stress of obtaining their relationship, that's just impossible to do with my schedule. It breaks my heart my son not having his dad, but me and my dad do the best to make him feel loved and I don't want to ruin that. Is it wrong for me to tell my son's father no?
