Reply To: Equal Parental Accountability
I totally get what everyone is saying here, there is no equal accountability between my ex and myself. He chose not to see my son until my son is 16 because he didn’t want to abide by any court order. I actually think that he believes that when my son is 16, my son will run to him arms wide open and all the sh1t will be forgiven and forgotten, he is in for a big shock. He hasn’t seen my son for years, has nothing to do with him, has no idea what’s going on in his life just the same as a stranger would have no idea.
So that’s the relationship he has with my son.
I, on the other hand have a fantastic young man in my life. I watch him each day growing into a man that any mum would be super proud of. He has kindness and compassion for people. He questions things that he sees in life that are all wrong and wants to find a way to fix things for people. I really do have the better deal going on here even with the insurmountable difficulties we have had over the years, it has been very, very hard at times.
