My children are grown, 18 and 19 so this is a question regarding my boyfriend and his sons mom. Child is 8 and my boyfriend is the one who has sole custody of child. Mother has parenting time. This is the 5th year my boyfriend has put his son in baseball and in the 4 previous years mother has only been to sons games a total of 3-4 times. Well this year 5 of the sons 10 games are on Tuesday with the games starting at 6pm. 6pm Tuesday is when the son goes with the mother (non custodial parent) and she has him for 48 hours. All previous years his games have started at 5pm and was able to get to mother on time at 6pm but this year its different. Father is obviously not in control of creating sons game time. Father told mom yesterday about sons baseball schedule and mother sent him a text saying she does not authorize him to keep the child past 6pm and he should of got written consent from her to put him in activiites when it interferes with her time. Father told mom via text that she was more than welcome to attend their sons games and take him with her from there. He even sent her the scedule along with a picture order form. He is not alienating her from coming to their sons games. He is in fact including her but she is insistant that son goes with her at her time even though it would mean their son would miss out on half of his baseball games which is something he enjoys very much and is quite excited about. She is rarely on time in picking the child up and doesnt show up until 6;25, or after 6:30 on numerous ocassions so I dont understand why now she is so insistant that she has child at 6pm. I would like whoevers reading this opinion if my boyfriend is in the wrong or is mother just being difficult.
