My nerves are shot. My son went to his fathers this weekend as normal he brought him back early. When my son walks through the door (hes 3) he softly wispers to me "mommy i peed" I said thats okay baby, i'll go get you clean underwear. A few hours later my ex texts me saying he wants full custody because I didnt punish him for having a accident!!!!!!! He said I am not strict enough and thats why he won't potty train and isnt learning with me. I raise my son 24 hours 6 days a week, his dad only takes him for one full day. He has tested above average on everything. Except potty training. I told him, that the doctor said that PUNNISHING him for ACCIDENTS is the worst thing you can do while potty training. At my house I say just try and rember next time when he has a accident, and he gets rewarded with stickers when he does rember. He has been doing great, except when he comes home from there!!!
Nothing makes you angrier as a mom, than to have someone threaten to take your kid away!! Even though i keep reminding myself he has no leg to stand on. That this is the only thing he has agianst me, its still the fact I feel like I am being degraded as a mother. I have no criminal history, I don't do drugs or even go out. i am a stay at home mom, and my husband cares for us all. M ex on the other hand has a criminal record and SO does his wife, Even though his custody agreement says 2 days a week, he barely does that. He shows no effort in trying to see him extra even though he lives 2 blocks away! My son has said that his step mom spanks him and is mean to him.
I know my ex is just doing this because hes mad about child support. At tax time they took back child support out. He fought it saying he needed it more. They denied him and just last week granted it to me. So isnt it odd that he JUST NOW wants custody? Then he made it even more obvious by sending me a text that said He wants him For a whole week every other week so he no longer has to pay child support!
I am so flipppppiiiiinnng mad. i'm trying to stay civil but i want to scream!! How dare he!
