I have a 3 year old son, dad and I split nastily on my part 2 years ago. I’ve dated previously and now find myself in a relationship developing well. We are looking at moving in together and have a house ready at the end of the month.
I have been open and honest about what’s happening in my sons life with his dad, and would expect the same. I found out a few weeks ago that dad has been in a relationship with a girl who also has a daughter for nearly 2 years. My son sleeps on the floor in her bedroom (he is quite happy about this) when he stays there. I also found out that she has been picking my son up from childcare without me knowing.
I have nothing against her or their relationship, I’m glad he’s moved on. But she is now getting involved in parenting issues and feels it necessary to tell me I have no right to know what my son is doing when he stays there, who picks him up, what they do etc. I feel this is wrong.
It all came to a head over the weekend when I was accused of interrogating my son as to what happens at daddy’s to the point he was crying saying he wanted to come home to mummy (he wasn’t allowed to by dad, he was told he needs to get a grip) and now I hear nothing.
I apologise, this is rambling. I don’t know what to do to help the situation. I don’t want a poor relationship with dad as I know how damaging it can be, but what else can I do when I’m being accused of intentionally harming my child’s emotional security?
If I’ve missed any details, please ask as I genuinely dont know what to. Do.
