I was wondering if I could get people's thoughts on my situation. Basically my now ex-partner asked me to move out of our home, so I took our son and moved in to my brothers house. He was seeing our son every week since we split up and then he wanted to have him stay the night every two weeks and then he wanted him every three weeks for a whole weekend, without seeing him in between visits. I said no it wasn't good for K (our son) and that he would have to see him more often the every 3 weeks other wise he will forget his daddy and then become unhappy when left alone with him. So he said he would have him for one night every two weeks and face call every night at bed time. My son is 19 months and loves the face calling and asks for his dad if we miss a face call. Face calling has been happening nearly every night since we moved out.
He now says he hasn't the time to face call in the evenings, but still wants him for the night every 2 weeks. I feel that this would not be good for K and that his dad needs to see him more often and keep up the face calling. I have no intention of stopping their relationship and encourage it whenever I can, but since my ex wants to only see him twice a month and not between, I am worried that this will affect our son in a negative way.
I can honestly say I don't know what to do. Any advice/ opinions?
