Preschooler sees his father with several different women

My 4 year old son told me his father has several different women that sleep in his dads bed. He said he spies on his dad and can see them moving up and down. He asked his dad about it and he tells them that they are wrestling. My son told me his daddy does this all the time and he doesn't like it. My son stays with me a week and his father a every other week right now. I dont know if I should let him go back to his dads house. This is confusing him and making me sick to my stomach! Help!

There are many factors here.
1. At four your son is old enough to know he should not be spying on his father. So you need to speak with him about privacy and boundaries. That is not okay. If a door is closed one should knock.

2. If you are concerned with the woman that his father has around him and his extracurricular activities ask him to refrain from hosting woman while your son is present. And if he has a problem with that you may need to rework the custody arrangement.
