I suppose this is something that will never end-a son not wanting to go spend the weekend with his father. His excuse is that he will miss his mother. My interpretation is that there is not enough quality time and I will leave it at that. It breaks my heart that the little guy feels this way. I feel sorry that his father will never know or even understand his own son.

Speaking from experience things will change. My oldest only came to visit because his mother said he had to. Last summer he was repeating that he would not spend the summer here. This year after spending some time in jail he asked to come live with me. I dropped him off to spend the week of Christmas with his mother. He hugged me, she began to cry.

So never say never, the heart heals. Kids are strong and will also recover!!!

Yes it feels good to blog and share again with my blogging peeps

peace

Wow, I came here to say hi and catch up with you but feel like that comment above was meant for me too - its an encouragement to here "kids are strong and will recover"

Part of what your little guy is totally normal, this is the time in life when mom is #1. As he gets older he may bond a bit more with dad and dad, hopefully, will understand him better as he gets older. You're a wonderful mother. I know it hurts to see him hurt.
