I have a 13yr old who loves his dad..and i have no complaints really except for the fact that i live 25 minutes away and he NEVER comes to pick him up on his weekends...only his mother does...he Never calls...only his mother calls to check on him and see whats going on ...he used to call all the time years ago..now i understand he is married now and has step children but HELLO..(it is his only son).why can't he call his son or make effort to at least drive with his mother to pick him up on the weekends?he is a great dad..when he's around...my son goes on fridays till sundays and doesn't even see him till sunday he either stays with his grandmother or his step mother and her kids...i just don't get it..does anyone else understand this??My dh who has been in his life since he was 3 gets really annoyed by this and thinks he should do alittle more and we argue about it all the time...it's getting old really fast!!
I'm sorry your going through that situation. When my parents divorced(I was 16 ) that's what my father did he felt that because he was obligated to pay child support that he didn't need to see us every weekend or call and he lived less than 10 minutes away. It all boiled down to guilt as to why he acted the same way . If he spent anytime with us alone he thought he would have to explain why things were the way they were. Some people really just don't have a clue that the actions that they think are harmless affect others.

I am sorry honey you are going through this. I think, it is nice of you to let your son go with grandma and know his family. When your son gets older, he will remember who made the effort. He probably loves grandma and always will. I hope everything gets better soon, so you don't have to argue with DH.
