I have a 14 yr old son whose father (my ex) gave him a broken used train set for Christmas that he bought on Craig's List. My son was very hurt and upset. He gave my daughter Rock Band. My son would tell me how upset he was about this, but not his Dad. Yet when Mother's Day came, my son made only a card with his blow pens. And today, my birthday, he hasn't even done that. My son does have the money for a gift, yet won't spend it. I know my son can't drive, but he could ask his older sister to take him to the store or help him in some way. His Dad was like this when we were married. Many occasions went by without mention. I have NEVER treated any of my three kids that way, nor did I treat their father like that. I know I'm the adult, but I do feel very hurt. Am I making too much of this? I feel he is old enough to understand. I know I'm the adult, but it does hurt. I know it's not about the gift, so how do I let this go? Do I?Answer Question

What did you tell him when he told you how he felt? Remember that he gets his cues on being a man, and how to treat women from BOTH of you.
Yet when Mother's Day came, my son made only a card with his blow pens. And today, my birthday, he hasn't even done that.
If I can read the disappointment from here, think of how he reads it in person. I know people always say 'it's the thought that counts', but if it's just a guilt ridden afterthought, it counts as well.
