Hi - I am new to this group and am hoping to get some insight on my current issue. I have a 10 yr old son who has been attending a Private school in Louisiana for 4 years against my wishes. Currently ive been sued to pay for said school, naturally i refused and requested have my son attend the school district in which we reside (mississippi). (was proved to be an EXCELLENT public school when we went to trial on this matter) My son has cried pleaded and begged not to attend the private school and attend the public school w local kids including his siblings, however his biological father insists he attend the private school. (that he says is causing a financial burden on him, which is why he sued me to pay for it). after trial judge ordered my son to attend the private school for an additional 5 yrs then i can transfer him in highschool to whereever i wanted ( i have full physical custody). and that bio dad was ordered to pay all expenses of said school as well as being liable for getting him there and back. since then, my son has screamed and cried saying he hates his dad and he wants to burn the school down, blow it up with bombs, etc. i would like some input as to your thoughts. whats more important? the childhood happiness and health of the child or the social status of the bio dad? i am very disturbed, sickened and worried about my son. he hates his life.
