I just need to get this out. My DS is 9.5 yrs old and his BF has not acknowledged his birthday ever or Christmas or any other holiday. In the one year that I was court ordered to send my son to BF for Christmas he did not get any gifts and had to sit and watch his sister and cousins open gifts as BF neglected to tell anyone that DS would be there. He has been very, very inconsistent with having contact with DS as will go years with out speaking to him. He now has a new girlfriend that is requiring him to step up when it comes to his son (it seems that he only ignores DS).
To my vent. He called a few days ago on his new girlfriends birthday to tell DS about all that things she got for his birthday and the plans they had. I am fuming and DS seems very unaffected. How dare he call out of the blue to tell DS about what he did for someone else for their birthday when he has not EVER called DS on his birthday even by accident. Then to brag about what he did for her when he can't pay less than $300 monthly in child support.
Thanks for letting me vent so that I can get it off my chest and move on but really how rude is it to call a kid and tell him about what you do for someone else when you can't be bothered to do for him.
