I have a 4 yo son who has had a father in his life - we E older horny woman vista when we was 2 bc dad found a side relationship with a coworker more fun than family life. I feel I kind of dodged a bullet there and we've remained friendly and I have done my best to foster a healthy relationship between them. I've made it easy for his father to choose a schedule that works for his life, tried to be supportive where I could, put up with constant changes to said schedule, which makes my Looking for a wonderful female of things a big difficult and so on.
He pays no support, and not one month went by without major changes or omissions to what was a very limited schedule to begin with. I don't say negative comments to my son about his dad, but that doesn't mean my son hasn't figured out that his dad isn't like other dads even in the divorced families.
