Hi my names ericka I can compleatly understand why its so frustrating for the one person that should be supporting only you take sides. I myself for a long time did not get along with my mother inlaw and there were even times where my and my husband would slit up because she had no respect for me and would talk to his ex GF'S!. Its very upsetting to see someone be so immature when in the real world they should be the main ones to support you and your growing family. what I would do personally is cut all ties financially with him if he does not understand the importance of you needing necessity not only for you but for your son then he will not understand the importance of be your supporter. He needs to understand on his own terms that mama does not come first anymore his family does which is you and your son. I had to learn the hard way what it was like at the age of 18 to be a single parent go to college and work. and on my husbands own terms he started to see that he was no longer a crutch for me. I made it so if he wanted to really be apart of our family he was going to have to show me on his own. Do not sit and wait on someone that does not put you first. If we as mothers are left to strive and struggle on our own then it should be just as hard for a man or grandparents to be apart of YOUR family. and do not wait around for anyone to change. I know as a young mother how much it hurts to not have the people that should be apart of my and my childrens life not be there. you cant change people you cant control their actions. the only thing you can do is change your attitude. and make sure you build a foundation for your kids to grow and be the best they can be. =)
