Hello- I am a single mother to a two year old son, and the father of my child is an extremely emotionally abusive drug addict/drunk. He left my son to fend for himself for five hours while he was passed out. My child was in a soiled diaper, hungry and thirsty, and even wandered outside near the road while the deadbeat slept. I am also keeping his mother away due to her rewarding her sons disgusting behavior, and despite me being a good mother to my child, has called CPS maliciously on ME, not her son. I need to keep them both away or I will lose my child.

You need to call the cops the next time they pursue you again. If he starts to get threatening or trying to do things to you both, call them. Have him arrested for what he is doing. Go to court and get a protection order. Do what it takes. A protection order will make it so he can not contact you, be within a certain distance of you, and other kids of things. Also, even if your state law says the unwed mom has custody, get a custody order in place. It will set up who has custody and what type it is, it will also set up visitation with perimeters concerning his abusive nature and other things. Also get a support order set in place as well so that he can be supporting this child financially.

Thank you so much for your advice. It has been a nightmare living with him, and walking on eggshells to try and please him...it cant be done. Thankfully, in my state, unwed mothers have full custody of children, and fathers have to fight it out in court if they want. His mother is harassing, stalking us as well. I left the abusive situation and staying somewhere safe, but they both know where we are, and we just keep them away. My son is much better off without both of them, and is happier than he has ever been around all of his family (my side). Please give me advice on how to deal with keeping them away...I just cant subject my little boy to this anymore. They were threatening CPS, calling the police etc, since I became pregnant, as a means of control, and have actually called CPS out of spite(she told me she did that and would again). This is not what I want for my little one. Please help!

Do you have a court order set up as well? Because frankly, unless you do, he could take the child and keep the child as well no matter his situation. You need to call CPS when something like this happens no matter what happens to the father. Do not let the grandmother talk you into not doing what is right for your son. If the father does this again, call in services. And tell them about the time before that. Also tell them of the drug addiction and drinking. They will have it all checked out. Trust me when I say do this, its for the best interest of your child. Also get custody set up too.
