My 8 year old son doesn't want to go to his Dad's. His father and I have been divorced for 6 years. I am his custodial parent and his dad is non-custodial. When I asked my son why he doesn't want to go, he said that all he does is sit there and listen to his dad and stepmother fight. He has also caught his father in the act of smoking illegal drugs. His father doesn't show interest in my son's schooling or extra-curricular activities. My ex was going to sign away his legal parental rights to my son when he was just 1. I am the only reason his dad is allowed to see him at all because at that time I wanted my son to have a relationship with his father....I regret that decision now. My so has no respect for his father, I believe, it's because his father doesn't respect him. The number of times that he has lied to him and all of the broken promises. I don't know what to do anymore. It's breaking my heart to see my boy go there because he "has to". We live in the state of Florida and NEED HELP!!!!
