why must it be always be about HIM being better than me.....
I am fed up with the ex always trying to buy my son, or better terms, buying my sons affection with gifts. He spoils him on a constant basis. He can because financially he has no responsiblities except when Our son 7, is with him. In my xh eyes he shouldnt have to pay child support because he has him every weekend.
Anyway, as I stated he always spoils him. Toys, vidoe games, fast food. I admit I am the "less fun" parent. I have my son during the week days, where there is homework, bedtime, chorse, responsiblities, manners and respect for others. When all is done we do have fun too in our own ways. At dads, its all fun and games, no bed time, no responsiblities. They talk about farts and butts. Its pretty embarressing.
This christmas he bought him so so so much. Its was really over doing it. I understand I cant control what happens at dads, or even what he buys him or how he lets him act. Heck I couldnt control it when we were married. In fact its one of the major reasons we arent together anymore. But why cant xh see how it effects our son. Hes 7 yrs old and has more than my 23 yr old son does. Seriously. This 7 yr old has, a cell phone (hes had since he was 5), his own lap top, a new galaxy tablet2, a xbox with a connex, a ps2, ipods, dre earphones, numerous vidoe games meant for MATURE PLAYERS, and for ONE of his christmas gifts he bought him a snowmobile. I cant even tell you how many toys he has.
But this is where it really bothers me. Last night xh text and asks me to talk to my son because he was throwing a fit. Apparently he was being disrespectful or something. IDK because I never got the whole story. But xh wanted me to talk to son and ask him to behave. This has happened at least every other week. I did talk with my son. I didnt discuss the situation because I wasnt there. But i did ask my son to be respectful and act as if he was with me. I think I need to stop doing that and just let the ex deal with what he has created in his home?? my son doesnt act up here with me and know what to exspect and how to behave......What do you all think?? Would that be wrong?
