I’m a mother of 2, I have a little girl who is 5 and a son who is 3, I’m going through court with my sonss father for custody of my son, ATM it’s half and half and set out in a really weird way, I’m just wondering if any of you mums have been through this as I need help.

When my son gets here he does not want to go back to his fathers, his said that he wil cry when I take him back, his ran and hid when it was time to go, he told me that he wil run away back to his mummy’s when he goes to his dads & the other day when I got him out Of the car he cried, kicked, screamed and punched me because he didn’t want too go, and I don’t kno how to help him, it’s not going back to court til next year because that’s when he goes back to school.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated

  • How is everything now? I think they pick up on our anxieties and reservations. Some goid advice about speaking positive about the ex


  • stories are great


  • Hope it all worked out well hun. Any updates?
    It must’ve been so horrible to have to take him back when he was like that xx


  • Im very sorry to hear how hard it is for your son and you i hope it gets better


  • how r u going with it all now … !


  • thats so hard boys like to be with mummy. I have a little boy at my sone school that crys at school because he miss’s him mum when its dads week


  • I’ve tried asking why he doesn’t want to go, and he just tells me that his Guna cry if he goes, thanks for the help ladies :)


  • You might already be doing this but reassure them and speak about their father positively. But also talk to your son and find out why he doesnt want to go (I had this with my son and I talked to him and we worked through it with his dad and he is now happy to go).

    • That’s great that you and his dad were able to sort it out together.


  • I went through the same thing with my kids, it broke my heart every time but the only thing I could do was reassure them that it was a good thing to have time with there dad and they had to think of all the fun things they wanted to do with there dad when he had them. I found it so hard to let them go with him it even had me in tears. It does get better well it has for me I really hope your little ones feel a bit better about going soon.
