My eleven year old son doesn't want to stay with me anymore...

I was divorced last year. Due to my work I couldn't have my son on weekends. He has grown much closer to his dad, soon to be stepmom and her two boys, 13 and 17. He now says he doesn't want to stay with me because we have too many talks and he feels as if I back in into a corner with our talks. I don't believe I do this but have to keep it in mind.

It's breaking my heart. Do I make him? I feel like he will resent me. I am a very emotional woman and have been diagnosed with bipolar for his whole life. I'm not as "fun" as his new family and I don't "do" as much as they do.

I feel at a lose and so alone in my head. I love my son more than anything but at times I feel so inadequate and not like a good mother.

Do you ask him about his dad when you have "talks" when he is with you? It doesn't matter how you feel, or what you feel you do. But if you are trying to discuss his time with his dad when he is with you, I can understand why he feels uncomfortable. Why can't you just have fun when you have time with your son?
