My ex texts me and asks if he can keep our son until 9pm tomorrow I told him no that it is a little too late. He got mad at me and started swearing on texts. I told him I am going to start saving his texts and file in court. My opinion is 9 is a little late for a 6 year old. I don't even keep my son out that late. Usually I don't keep him out past 7pm.


My son is the type if he is out late he will not go to bed and he will be awake all night. I told my ex the most I could do was let him keep him until 7 and he said that isn't good enough. I am trying to really try to get along but he is making it hard. So what should I do?

What's his reason for keeping him later?  Are they going to a special event?  Its the summer and he's not in school (right?) so I dont feel like it would be a huge issue for him to be up later.  I would probably just go ahead and let him keep him a little later unless it starts happening all the time.

Was he going to a special event? 9:00 is not horrible in my opinion to happen on special occasions.

9 in the summers for a 6 year old is not late.

I told him return him at 7 or if he wants to keep him until 9 he needs to keep him over night.

What the hell? 9 o'clock is late? See this is what gets me, you have a man who wants to spend more time with his child and you are bitching about it, yet if it was reversed and he wasn't spending time with him you'd be having a cow about that too. You need to grow up and let the man have two extra hours. It's summer and that child will never get that time back.

Ouch.  Not every mom who shares custody is on a rampage.  She knows how her kid is and if she told him if he keeps him till 9 he should keep him all night long, I think that's really fair.

Exactly I think it is fair too. Like I said I would not care if he wanted to see our son seven days a week see him whenever  you want as long as he is back for 7 or keep him over night I think that is being more than flexible.
