nervous for my son

My Ex boyfriend and I will be starting to share custody of our son. I'm very nervous for my son to be there because he has an 8 yr old daughter who is great with my kid, yet he also has an 18 yr old son who has been arrested before, he has had experiences with drugs and our son will be 3 in 2 months. I really don't want the 18 yr old around my son.

I agree with Jodi. You chose to have a child with him and your knew his children before!
Are you worried about the Father being around your child? That's the only question you really need to answer. You also need to get visitation and support sorted out through the courts now!

This is something you should have thought of BEFORE you had a child with this man. He had both of those children before you had your child, so they were part of the package deal. Let me put it this way - if that 18 year old were your child, what would you do? Boot him out of home?

The fact is, you had a child with a man who has other children. You have not mentioned that your ex is a problem or that you have any concerns that your ex will endanger your child. That is the only consideration. You have to have faith that your ex has your son's best interests at heart.
