Anyway to encourage MY SK to talk to his BM!? She is the non custodial its really hard, i think its because he is having fun etc. Also when she is on the phone she is CONSTANTLY asking so many confusing questions and hurting his feelins!

Really REally? its like GROW UP BM!
SK is almost 6 he is mostly silent on phone has NOTHING to say to his BM - I tell him please please talk!
Brought up ice cream anything LOL
please open to take in sugggestions.
Attrny said we can't FORCE this. any suggestions will help.
i know SK seems to be happy at BOTH places, know he loves his BM, but NEVER want him to feel as if he is in the middle of all this B.S. that my fiance and his BM are going through.

He tells us that he doesnt want to talk to her bc she asks questions like did we feed my SK?
Did we hurt him?
Did we put him in TIME OUT
IF so how long?

He just wants a normal conversation

Has anyone tried to explain to bio mom that all these questions make him not want to talk to her? Has anyone told her that your stepson just wants a normal "how's your day going?" conversation?

How old is he? Kids can be hopeless on the phone when they are young, and I don't mean any offence by this, but boys in particular. My daughter will talk until the cows come home on the phone, but my experience with our boys has been you're lucky to get a grunt and a shrug out of them.

But I agree with Joanna, that someone should talk to her about the type of conversation she is trying to have with him.
