My ex and I have 50/50 custody of our son. We live 8 hours apart and our arrangement is 3wks/3wks. Out homes are very different- when he is with me he has brothers and sisters coming and going but at his dads it's just him and his dad and his wife. At his dads he plays video games, watches movies, and pretty much gets what he wants with 100% attention. That's not how it is here. He shares attention here. He is starting to show resistance to coming to my house because he loves his dad's house so much. He is asking for more time there and less with me- I hate seeing his heart hurt. If I wait a year longer he comes here for school but if I put a stop to his traveling he can go to school this year at his dads- what do I do? End his little heart from hurting or keep the same arrangement going and hope it's just a phase? Help! My heart is breaking with the thought of letting him go but it's also hurting knowing his little heart hurts!
