What are my options? My sons father won't step up he can hand money over at any time and he believes that solves everything but he never really spends time with our son. My son is only two and I'm a stay at home mom so he is very attached to me. But when he finally comes around when he's on days off from his oil field job he thinks he can bark orders and raise his voice and that makes me upset! My son isnt bad yes he has his days like any other toddler but not enough to yell and I'm not a loud person. I just feel like im stuck. For the next 16yrs just stuck and it's the worst feeling ever.. I can't even move on he makes me feel horrible anytime I do he gives me that "oh your going to bring another man around my child" talk so it stresses me out and ruins my process of moving on. I don't know what to do anymore :( I'm only 26 I deserve to be happy.. Right?

Yes!! You deserve to be happy. The thing is a lot easier to say those words than to make it happen. I wish I could provide better insight, but I too, am going through the exact same thing, in addition to trust issues of my husband. We know we deserve to be happy, the question is : How do we do move on, without affecting the children. ( then again, will they be affected, since the Dad is never really around anyways?) The children should be accustomed to that, right?

Mandy, I am unable to tell you what you should do, but I will say, you are not the only one.
