I take it he lives with you MOST (or all) of the time, obviously from above... He might not be comfortable with him. Could he be picking up vibes from your feelings of the dad?? I've never been in this situation and don't have a degree. lol I wouldn't push him or force ds to talk to the dad. I would SUGGEST it to him, or even "talk him into" in a way. He needs his dad (assuming the dad will properly care for him and not hurt him, etc) at least a little. Maybe gradually work into him talking/spending time with him? A little at firts, then working up... If I were you I would be Swiss! Don't say or do anything negative towards the dad when ds is present.. Even if you can't stand him now, he is the dad..... let ds make the choice when he's old enough.. Try not to push or hinder the relationship though.... Idk, like I said I've never been there, just guessing what to do! GOOD LUCK!!!
