My 16 year old son wants to live with his dad

Why does it hurt so much that he wants to live with his dad, I am sure he just want to spend time with his father, how should I react to this situation without let him see how heartbreaking this is for me.

It hurts when a child makes a choice like this. But sometimes we have to learn to let go. I had to hear my daughter tell the judge she wanted to go back to her old school...I could understand that and her dad lived near her old school. But at the same time he was more than willing to fight for custody and stick it to me. She even apologized for it but I told her I did not like it and it hurt but I would be alright. Its not about us anymore. Its about the kids. You should be glad he wants to go live with his dad. That shows how much he wants to spend time his dad. I am sure there are a lot of things he wants to share with dad. You should be proud he is thinking like this. As long as he has not said he hates you or said other negative things about this, then its a good thing. Because someday he is going to leave the home nest for good.
