I am a single mother of 4 teenagers. My son is 13 my daughters are 15, 17 & 18
My daughters stopped seeing their dad regularly because of his mind games control and bs. My son however thinks his dad is a saint. He up and moved an hour away and started dating the girl he rents the basement from. I know nothing about her and don't even have a problem with her until the day she came out to my car and threatened me while my 18 year old was in the back seat. I still want nothing to do with her and I'm happy my ex is preoccupied with someone else but every time my son goes up there my ex leaves him alone in the basement to do what he wants.
The latest outburst tonight my son texted asking to stay until Monday and I said no we had plans. I told him if he was going to be mouthy he would lose his iPod for a few days and as soon as I said that he pulled the whole I'm living with dad and that's that. I get so upset and heart broken when he pulls this nonsense because he is fine when he's not around his dad. He listens he does well but every time there is a "no" or he doesn't get his way he acts out. Everyone says I should let him live with his dad but it will kill me because my ex is mad that the girls don't see him even though it's his own doing and he will tarnish my relationship with my son
