I'm in disbelief as to what my son's father has been telling our son. He bribes with false promises and forces him to go with this girl whom I do not know and has to drive my son's father around while with our son and her 2 kids. I have heard so many distasteful things about her as a mother and of course she has no shame doing the same to my son and his father who obviously doesn't respect what our son says to him. I'm sad for my son that an early age of 6 he sees that his father doesn't listen to his concerns. He has told his father he doesn't like the new friend but his father insists this is their family and our son quickly said she is not. Now my son's and I relationship is changing drastically. I have not taken a male around my son because my son still wants "us" his father and I to do things with him like we used but he also understands why his dad cannot go in our home because unfortunately my son witnessed his father drag me and beat me as well as insult me when he was 3 years old and vividly remembers that day and what his father did. My biggest regret now is not calling the police years ago about this but for fear of my son being taken from me. So much more to this but I'm lost now. I feel like my son is being pulled from me by bribes simply because I cannot afford to do things with him. I have a home and car payment, dad lives with mom and has no car. Yet always finds money (ehum) to buy a boat, go camping, lavish dinners, etc. and yet fought me on child support 3 times. At this point I don't even depend on that money.
