I have a 4 year old son named Wyatt. Like all moms, this little boy has my entire heart. I was younger when I got pregnant & was with his father for 3 years prior. I need any advice that anyone could possibly tell me. When I got prgenant, his dad wasn't there to often and often lied to me. I didn't know if his dad would stick around and so I gave my son my last name. Honestly, I felt like his dad didn't deserve to have my sons last name (I know that sounds horrible, but theres a long story that made me feel this way). His father has turned into this utter nightmare and complete narcissist. Constantly bringing me down, blaming me for things, belittling me for no obvious reason. I am a responsible mom who takes full care of my son, it is was I love to do more than anything. He is with his dad 2 nights a week and most of the time, he just makes his parents watch him. It just frusterates me so much, I mean shouldn't I have a right to be with him if his dad isn't actually going to watch him? We have not been to court, I feel like I could lose him more if the court gives his dad more days. He is more like a playmate than a dad, he has no idea what it is actually like to take care of him. Every day is literally like torture from the thngs he says to me, it sucks the lfie out of me. After so long, I start to feel like maybe I am some horrible person. It is sometimes so hard to not let him get to me. Its constant battling. So, in the last coouple of months, his dad has started to torment me on changing my sons last name to his. Says he has every right and will get his name if we go to court. I do not want to change his last name, whatsoever. This boy is my life and I have done everything to raise him and for the last name to be taken away would kill me. I always asked him "Instead of just changing his last name, why don't you try to change both of ours?" (hoping that some day he might change, and show that he truly wants to have a family). Obviously, that just fueled him more to go off on me. I have told him in every way that I do not want to change his name, but he will not take no for an answer. Any words would be helpful. I just have no idea what to do or how to stand up to him anymore. Anything I say is turned around and changed into some crazy concept that he can think of. One time he told me "Feelings aren't real and mean nothing", so he has no sympathy or feelings towards others. He knows everything about me, so he just pushes the knife a little further each time. Has anyone dealt with someone like this? Help!
