Breaking up with father of my son

Aimee - posted on 07/07/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am 19 years old and my son is 1 this month. I have been in a relationship with the dad for coming up to 3 years in October, however we have had some issues from the first few months. We have always had a lot of trust issues as he is prone to messaging different girls behind my back etc so I have always felt paranoid and second best if you like. After I had my son last year (unplanned), I thought things may get better however it has just gotten worse.There has been about five occasions where I have seen him messaging other girls and also he does not provide for his son and has a gambling problem which I always vowed I could not deal with but went against my word as I thught I loved him. This week I feel like I have had a major wake up call and I know myself I dnt want to be with this man anymore and breaking up with him was so hard but I know it was the right thing to do for me and my son. I need advice on how to tell my mum, she likes him however she told me when I was pregnant she knew he wasn't the man I was going to be with forever, I just feel like such a failure and so embarrassed to tell her we split up as I am still young and there is such a bad reputation for young mums already I just don't want her to not be proud of me. I feel like I should have dne more to make it work and I cant bring myself to talk to anyone about it because of the shame I feel. Please help :(

Just tell her. She already knows.

Make sure you have paternity established, and that you have a court date set to get visitation and support outlined right away.
