All good points for certain but stopping your kids from learning that the grass is not always greener on the other side..well almost all people have to learn that lesson on their own... If asking them why will make or break your decision then that is important of course, but will they be honestÂ or do they even know why ?Only these things you know for certain:) I fought it all the way but he was old enough according to the courts to go-he came home in less than 6 months- I knew his "father" was not his best choice for many reasons - Each person here has solid input-my heart goes out to you. My son and I are very close today he has shared with me his feelings "the real ones" when he was older-it wasn't because of me-it was he wanted to get to know his father . Along with other things "guys" go through. For what it is worth-alot of people care about what you are going through along with your sons. Blessed Be.

I agree with finding out the reason why they want to do this. My 12 year old step son did the same thing over the summer "I want to go live with my mother". (My husband and I have full custody of her two sons, the 12 year old is not biologically my husbands and the 12 year old has known this for several years.) He said to spend more time with his mother and his sister who is 4. In reality it was due to the fact that him and his brother, who is 10, clash a lot they are total opposite and that he did not do well in 5Th grade and could possibly repeat the grade. We let him stay with her over the summer on and off for 2 weeks. Before school started, we asked what his decision was and he relived why he did not live with her anymore.
