Here's my situation.... my son is 10. His dad and I have been split up since he was 4. His dad lives 2 hours away from us. His dad takes him only when it's convenient for him. My son is in sports and has more and more birthday parties and different activities he is involved in now. Because his dad doesn't take him but once a month, he doesnot feel comfortable going to his dad's. He claims he hardly talks to my son and just sits around on his phone all day. Our court papers read that we have joint custody with primary placement with me and visitations at my disgression. I've never held him from seeing our son but I'm getting tired of feeling bad for my son going there when he doesn't want to. My question is, should I feel guilty telling his dad that he has plans on weekends that he really does have plans so he won't be going for a visit? Also, if it's my son's decision not to go, should he call his dad and tell him, or should i?
