Wow that would be tough that could be why he don't want to sleep there since he isnt really spending time with him and making him feel safe there. If that makes sense.

maybe giving him something of yours then, so he has your smell with him.

Crazy question does he have to stay the night or does his dad just want him to?

Maybe have him take his pillow or blanket to help remind him of his bed at your house.
