My ss6 is begging us not to send him back to his mom's. I respect his mom and would not want to tell her this(even though he apparently has told her, and she told him he HAS to live with her). BM's situation isn't the best, but I know she loves him and is doing the best she can do to support him. She works nights, so when he is with her, she leaves after dinner and doesn't get home until early the next morning. Basically, he's only with her from the time he gets off the bus(4pm) until she leaves for work(around 7pm). He bounces from grandparents' to sitters' while she's at work. His dad and I have 4 kids all together, but our home is stable. I am a SAHM and he works until 5pm and is home with us rest of the day/night. We kind of want to fight for custody, but I know that would not settle well with her. Currently, we get him EOWE, every other holiday, a week for winter break, and all summer(during that him he sees her EOWE). Opinions? I hate to hear him beg us not to send him to his mom.
