Having been where your GF is now, I can sympathize. What we did was talk about splitting up. Obviously we're still together but the talk helped alot. It helped me see her side and she see mine. Things weren't great but they were endurable.

Another thing to keep in mind is kids grow up and sooner or later they will move out.

I knew it would be a difficult thing for her to accept once my son moved in, but all the while I was told I have her support 100%, but things go differently I guess when it actually takes place.

She feels that my son dont respect her and I believe its because of the "Your not my mom" factor, but I told her that she will have to step up her parental role a bit more to gain his respect as far as listening to her.

We talked, and talked and I did get to see her side, but for the most part, im hoping that everything will get back on track which it seems to be doing already.

My son has allot of issues that until now were not being dealt with. I got him in counseling, and hes taking Aderall for ADHD and Prozac for depression. How many 12 year olds are on Prozac?

Anyways, im off on the right foot and I hope things go for the better. SO far so good!!

BLACK94SSEi, my best friend has a son in the same situation. She even had to have him put into the hospital because he tried to commit suicide. It is really a sad thing for a parent to have to deal with. She said they dragged her son away kicking and screaming for her and they were holding her back from trying to get to him. It broke my heart when she told me about it. She is a great mom but her ex-husband (the boys father) was a non-participating father and that is wrong!! She spent so many years without getting any childsupport and putting all 3 kids through private school and keeping them involved in sports. I don't know how she did it other than the grace of God. Fortunately for her the one son was the only child that had these type of issues. He is now older and doing much better.

Hang in there, you are on the right path!

Thanks for the support!!

That'* sad to hear, both about the non active father and that the child had to be taken away like that. That'* something that I may have to do, but I'm thinking more of boot camp than hospital. My son is already leading a destructive path as he is now going through the juvenile court system.

I believe it to be a misunderstanding, but the courts and the neighbor thinks it was intentional, so we'll see.

Im just glad im in my sons life because if not, he would be locked up right now :(

Im sure it will all work out, But the main issues lye at his mothers house. Shes been involved with Child Services before regarding her BF'* kids and mine for neglect, but instead of removing the kids, they work with them instead. I dont think the system here in MA works for children at all.

So We'll see what happens. I have to go back to court on Sept 27.
