My ex (not his dad) was around and was a huge help in kinda providing that male role model... but lately, he bails on ds and I've been thinking about putting an end to it.... haven't decided but I don't want ds to continuously be let down.
He's on the waiting list with the big brother program. He had a big sister before but this time, I'm really pushing for a man... sadly, not many men are volunteering their time. :-(
He's in karate- has been since Nov, but it's not that one on one with the main instructor. Like he won't be able to get a close-ish relationship with him, plus he barely comes as it is.
He'll be starting basketball, but it'll be at the rec center and again- I can't see how it'll really help form that male role model bond.
My dad is too busy and my 16 year old brother would rather poke his eyeballs out than hang out with a kid lol
