My seven year old son has bee making comments regarding his father (my ex-husband's dating) to me. I did not think much until this came out of his mouth, "Dad's going to have another girlfriend in a month". He even proceeded to tell me that he meets women from online and invites them over to hang out with him and the kids. He even ask me to tell his dad to stop dating. In the end, the result that he wants is more time with his father. He says he gets tired of having to hang out with his father wth the girlfriends around. For example, he wants to ride bikes, but his dad is spending time with the current girlfriend. Should I be worried?
I have mention that my son is feeling left out and that his son is making inappropriate comments about his dating, but he chuckles like it means nothing at all. I got the point from his end to stay out of my business, but as a mother, I am worried as heck right now. My husband and I have a great marriage with another child in the picture. Is he going to pick-up the dating habits of my ex-husband or from me at this point?
Keep in mind, a very messy divorce-been in court four times over custody since June 2010. I know if my son told him that I had these dating habits that he would have me court in an instant. How I know, he took me to court at 39th weeks pregnant and proceeded to tell the judge he did not know I was pregnant even after having two kids with him, and I had witnesses that could prove he knew I was pregnant.
