My ex thinks it should be my 6yr old sons job to call him instead of vise versa. He works 3 weeks on, 1 week off and sometimes he will see him 2 nights, but recently didnt even see him and didnt let me know he wasnt going to see him. He drinks a lot and focuses on women. I feel that my son is missing out. His dad says he loves him and buys him stuff, but I think his idea of love is different. I feel he should be putting in a little more effort..

He does call him, but he doesn't answer most times. and you can tell when hes on the grog, because he ignores all calls.

I agree that you can't control how much effort your ex puts in to seeing/communicating with your son.

However, having said that - is there any harm in you encouraging your son to call him?

Yes Evelyn, That's exactly what I think. I put in the effort to encourage him to see his son, and I always work around his plans to make things easier. I worry that my son will eventually resent him for not putting in an effort. He has always done what benefits him and him alone. Very selfish. I always bite my tongue because I don't want to sound like one of these high maintenance ex's, but I feel he needs a little wake-up call..
