My ex (of only 3 months, since separation) is having an EXTREMEMLY difficult time understanding (or wanting to understand) how hard of an adjustment our son is having with all these life changes. I had been a stay-at-home mom for his whole life and now not only did we move (twice in 2 months) but now I'm going to work, dropping him off at daycare, AND he doesn't get to see me for THREE WHOLE DAYS during the week every week (for his father's visitation).
My ex is being EXTREMEMLY stubborn and doesn't understand how hard of a time he is having adjusting. He doesn't understand it's too much too soon. Our son doesn't know if he'll see me again, hence night time, for me, are TERRIBLE! He goes to bed no problem for Dad but he doesn't have the emotional attachment to him that he does to me. My bedtimes are just off the charts terrible!
How do I get him to understand I'm not "taking his son away" I'm trying to HELP HIM COPE!
