  • I used to buy him a card but he didn't even care about it. after two years of buying him a card and small gift from my son i just said fuck it. He's not worth it. He never bought me anything for mother's dy, my birthday, christmas, anything when we were together and when we broke up so Iasked myself, why am I putting in effort for this loser. Haven't heard from him in 2 years now.

  • I won't be buying one this year (1st year we're not together). We're not even on speaking terms, and DS doesn't even see him.

  • Depends on closeness of child/father, if there was abuse... But I wouldn't use Father's Day to get back at my kids' dad if we weren't together.

  • No, he is a mean and vindictive man and I do not buy him a present from the kids/
