When your child doesn't want to go to dad's house



  • supermom 5 years ago

    I raised my stepkids (fulltime) until their father was laid off and the we had to move 42 minutes away from their biological mother this past summer. They visited her every other weekend and Wednesday night. The children were never comfortable being honest with their mother about their wishes to stay with us, but have expressed it to us, to teachers, friends, and coaches. Although the case is being appealed, I do want to reiterate that judges in San Bernardino county, do not really want children brought into the court room by their parents and put in a position to make a choice that will destroy the other parents feelings. So even though our 14 and 13 year olds don't want to live with their mother now after all these years, they are coping, at least until our appeal is heard. Why? Because my husband didn't want to put them through that pressure. If children don't have a relationship built on trust and understanding with the parent they just can't speak their minds.
