My son is 6. I have been separtated from my ex partner for over a year and we were not married. I have offered him every other weekend as I also work. He also gets to see his son in the holidays and during the week when he asks to have him. But this doesnt seem enough and can be quite demanding which make me feel uncomforable. He sees his other two children every weekend and their mother doesnt work. He says my son has to see his half brother and sister too who are 13 yrs and 14 yrs now. But my son is seeing them. He is making me feeling I cant spend any quality time with my son. I cant keep living like this. He is getting to see my son on a regular bases.
He has him 10am to 7pm sat and same again on sun every other weekend and sometimes overnight depending what shift he is on. Ive lethim have my son on other days too when he has asked but he doesnt ask very well. Hes just had him for a week to take him on holiday.
Hes demanding every weekend like his other two children and if I did that my son and myself would not have any quality time and he wouldnt be able to see his friends either as I work and son is normally at school. Its just his attitude. He gets to see his son on a regular bases and he thinks im being unreasonable for not letting him have my son when he wants and expects me to drop things. My son is happy to go and see him but he does not yearn for his dad so I have no concerns there. I just wish he would just back off and allow us to live our lives as we dont live with him anymore.
Because hes a shift worker. He does have him overnight now and again but also my son does not sleep well, hasnt done since birth and has expressed he likes to come home, but I still encourage him to go to his dads
