SS told us today that he has been very upset over the fact that, although BM has the ability to be, she is not very involved in his life. He said he wishes she would call instead of text, visit, invite him to visit her, etc.
We have already stopped the texting and told BM that if she would like to talk to SS she can CALL Dh's phone. We feel that the texting is unhealthy because it doesn't promote a "bond" and it is also confusing for an 11 year old to identify tone and interpret any sort of sarcasm, etc.
SS is 11. BM has been absent since he was 2. She was released from prison in June after a 3 year sentence. DH and I married when SS was almost 3.
Do we tell BM what he said? OR do we simply help him accept that she will NEVER change and find a way to live with that.
