My boyfriend and I split about 6 months ago.we have a 2 yo old together. He has him every 1st, 3rd and 5th weekend. A few months ago when I would FaceTime to talk to my son, he would scream and refused to talk to me. Breaks my heart...any ideas why my son freaks out when I call? He's also very angry when he comes back to me. Could he be mad or blaming me?? Help!!!

Thanks Michelle! He does see his dad every week, with one overnight stay on the weekends his dad doesn't see him. This just crushes my heart...I greatly appreciate your response/advice :)

His world just just been turned upside down and at 2 he doesn't know why. All he knows is that Daddy lives somewhere else and he only gets to see him every 2nd weekend. 2 weeks is a long time in the life of a 2yo.
You need to just spend time with him and explain it in a way he will hopefully understand without going into too much detail. Explain that you both love him dearly and will both be there for him.
