Sons dad is inconsistent

Kendall - posted on 10/26/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son is 18 months old. His dad and I were high school sweethearts but broke up when he was 10 months old. He never cared to see him when we were dating and now he only sees him once every 4-5 months. My son cries when he is with him so we always go along and try to make it comfortable for him. He was once a good person but he has never participated with our son. He has never bought him anything, he only plays with him for about 2 hours each time he sees him, he doesn't work. I feel like I'm gonna break down because it doesn't seem fair that I work and go to school and support this child alone and he can ask to see him when it's conviant for him. I don't want my son to grow up and think this is normal and how a father should ask. Any insight on how to handle this situation ladies? Thanks in advance :)

It stinks that you two were high school sweethearts but have now separated. It's not easy being a young, single mom. I'm going to suggest that you seek to come to an agreement through court. If you go through court, they'll seek child support and set guidelines for visitation. Even if you go to court, things may not end up the way you wanted them to. I also suggest counseling for yourself and eventually, if things have not worked themselves out by then, counseling for your son as well. Hopefully things will start looking brighter for you and your son!
