It is wrong to keep him from seeing his child because you aren't mature enough to deal with breaking up with him. Sorry, but you have to just grow up and deal with it. Once you had that baby, life was no longer about you and how you feel, your child has to be your priority. Preventing a relationship between your child and the other parent because YOU can't handle it is inconsiderate and not acceptable.

At worst, if you DO decide to stop your child seeing his dad, he could take you to court on the basis of parental alienation, and you may lose custody. Is that a prospect you are prepared to entertain?

It's about your son seeing his father - unfortunately you'll have to take the "high road" and tolerate the Dad. I used to be real bitter towards my sons father and then I realized I had to take responsibility for the man I chose to be the father of my kids. It's not always easy but a friend of mine told me sometimes I just gotta "put my big girl panties on" Good luck

I believe a child should see his father and he could be a jerk and use your anger as exist to never see his child. If it helps, you could meet in a public area and drop off and pick up. Hi other words necessary than hi and bye. Getting things in writing couldn't hurt also.
