  • Depends on the age of the child when it comes to going to live with him but every father should be involved in their children's lives.

  • IDK. I guess your child is of the age to want to be involved with his father, so i dont blame him. I would talk it over with his father, and then maybe suggest it start in small doses. Like maybe when school's out for a week or weekends or something. If he is famous, he has the money to do it. I guess it would just depend on how far you would be able to take it. I wish you lots of luck. I dont know if I could send my child away like that for a long period just because I am horrible at leaving either of my kids for more than a couple of hours outside of my classes or working lol

  • It depends on what the kids want and if the dad will be responsible enough to spend time with them and watch them.

  • maybe you could tell the dad to take a week or so off of whatever he does, and let the kids stay with him. Or work it out so he gets them for a few months in the summer so you wont have to worry about school. its hard to let your kids go do stuff on thier own....but its part of growing up as much as it makes us moms sad....

  • The grass is always greener, so I'd let him go. He'll realize what he has at home and will return. I agree children need to spend time with their fathers, as long as their safety is not an issue.
