So I'm sure you've seen the article by now. Father is deemed unfit for not giving into a child's fit and buying a crappy meal for his son. Son is given the choice of anywhere but MCDs or nothing and he chooses nothing. Mom overreacts when her son is returned to her that evening and is hungry (as he chose to not eat dinner) so she calls the shrink dealing with the divorce case and the shrink deems the father unfit. Oh, and mommy dearest makes sure her wittle boy gets his crappy meal before bed.

Thoughts?

I am hoping that mom's actions are questioned during the next custody hearing. She sounds like a super mom.

then dh is a shitty parent because for 4 yrs that's all ss7 would eat. I would love for my ex to try that shit with me.

Some ppl should need a special license to have kids.

First I didn't think a shrink can declare him unfit on this basis.  Why would you call a shrink about this anyway.  I don't get any of this.  So BF didn't feed him because of DS choice/fit... BM could have just drove him to MCD's and got the happy meal without calling a shrink.  Crazy!

There's gotta be more to the story...right? Even if the wife is telling the shrink all kinds of lies about the dad, she had to have more to go on than he's unfit because he refused to get the kid fast food...?

I suppose I'm unfit as well. You eat the dinner I cook or go to bed hungry. She's never opted to go to bed hungry though... adult or child, you don't always get what you want and the whole world won't revolve around you.

This is like the story where the Applebees supposedly through out the couple because they were black...  but it turns out their child was literally running around the restaurant.
