I put up a post a while back looking for advice because my partner's parents wanted to have our son, D'Andre, 4, visit for christmas. They live in Africa.
I was actually inching toward a 'yes', but now I'm just so mad! They haven't even organised the date he's travelling, they say he's travelling with his aunty, who doesn't even know when she's going. They are not taking into account he needs to have certain vaccines and, most importantly, they need to be organised. Now they are telling me, his aunty will be travelling the 25th or 27th, but she's staying for a month so D'Andre will be coming back with his uncle. Its ridiculous! This is my child, the most important person in my world, and they want me to just agree with whatever they tell me.
I've decided he's not going anywhere, I am not comfortable with it. In fact, Im terrified!I don't understand them. Now my partner is mad with me, which in turn makes me mad. He doesn't seem to be thinking of our son, but just to please his family, which to me is so wrong!
I don't understand. He expects me to just send our son to Africa without knowing who he's travelling back with, if he's happy with his uncle, who is not a child person.
Why is he being so difficult?This is our child, it's like he cares more about pleasing his parents then his child.
He's not even speaking to me
