I have a 22 month old son with a man that I was never married to but we have joint custody. My son started spending Saturday night every other weekend with his dad when he was one and this past weekend was the first time he did a Friday thru Sunday visitation. He was screaming out in his sleep last night when he returned home and at one time yelled out "Mommy!"...He was very restless and didn't sleep well at ALL..Today, he has been very cranky and just threw a 15-20 min tantrum in a book store because we had to leave. He has also been hitting me a lot. My son is usually an extremely happy baby and I'm so afraid that these weekend vistitations with his dad are negatively affecting him. His dad and his family also call him by a different name and I think this is also confusing and frustrating for my child. His dad doesn't believe these things are happening and thinks I'm just making it up to keep him away from his son. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this? I'm so afraid for my son..
