My three year old son acts out after he visits with his father. He hits me, he throws and breaks things in my home. He also tells me that he does not like me and that I am bad. His father is also living with another women. Does anyone have any advice?????

Oh the dreaded shared custody! I know exactly what you are going through! The most important thing for you to do is speak to the father and make it very clear that he is to stop "bad-mouthing" you in front of your child. You also need to make it clear that the other woman is NOT HIS MOTHER!! It is so hard when they are that little. I guess the best advice I can give about handeling your little boy when he returns to you from them is remind him constantly how much mommy loves him and misses him when he is away. Good luck!
