I am so hurt and confused because I have sacrificed the last 11 years to only my son. I have tried to do everything to set him up for success. His father and I don't agree on anything and he loves to buy him everything, and I can't buy him anything! He has ADD - the inattentive type and I have gone through hell to get him on medication, IEP, ect., through the court. His father doesn't think he has ADD, and won't give him his medicine when in his care. How is he going to get through high school. His father's current girlfriend is playing a great role right now, and gives him money all the time! Soon his father will screw it up soon, because he is not well. When she is gone, then what? I am tired of getting all the hard times and his father gets all the fun; but I still feel like I am failing him? His Dad wants to change schools NOW, and I don't know if I should pull him out now, or if I can deal with finishing out this year, while I am so hurt and sad. I just am sick over this, I have another son who is 5, and is always second... With my older son with his father, I won't have to go through the court for every little thing, and it would be a lot easier for me, honestly. My time with my 5-year-old would be nicer... Still, I am his mother, and we are not at odds. e just got back from the two-week vacation with his dad and springs this on me... I'm so upset and sad. I don't know what to do?
