so my mother just called me to inform me that my 5 yr old told her last night that he doesn't want to come home b/c my husband hits him on his legs when he puts him to bed.
my husband is his step father. he has put my son to bed maybe 4 times in the 2 1/2 yrs we have been together. he has in the past spanked him on his butt, but never anywhere else!
i think my mother is feeding these ideas to him. or my son is just making it up to be able to stay at grandmas.
i think he doesn't want to come home bc he is bored. i just had a baby and she takes some time, and i am cleaning or doing laundry other times, and me and my son have time together as well. i don't understand this.
my son has told me numerous times he wants to go live with my parents. he says he hates this house.
i understand that he gets bored, and he wants to be at my mothers bc she gives him her undevided attemtion the whole time he is there, but why is he making these things up about my husband?
and i know for a fact my husband is not hitting him in anyway that is not appropriate to a punishment for his misbehavior.
my mother has said before she thinks my husband beats him, but my son never has any marks or bruises on him, and i am a stay at home mom. im here all the time with both of them together. and if i do leave 9 out of 10 times he goes with me.
i just don't get it.
anyone else had this problem?
