I haven't posted on here in a while but I really need some opinions.
I shared my story on here when my son was first born: I am a single mom, I work part time and spend all my free time studying to get my teaching license. I had to move back in with my parents while pregnant, and my son's father doesn't contribute financially and would constantly blow off his visitation schedule we had worked out between us.
Fastforward to a few weeks ago, I was looking over one of my credit card statements and came to find out he got a hold of my credit card number when we lived together and charged thousands of dollars. A week later he admitted to me his is addicted to drugs and has spent all his money on pills instead of his son.
I told him he needed to get help (like rehab or some type of drug treatment program) and then I would let him see his son, supervised visits of course. He made 1 appointment with a behavioral therapist for "anxiety" and expected to be able to take his son alone that weekend following. I told him since he is taking steps in right direction (very very small steps) I would meet up with him for an hour at the local park to see his son. He showed up with nothing for the baby but had a new cellphone.
I really don't want to be around him because he stole from me and he is just a crappy person in general, so my parents have graciously offered to being the baby to the park for an hour on Saturday mornings to see him. I don't think I should have to let him see his son at all since he is not getting help and has admitted to being addicted to drugs, But I have settled on this park visit once a week. His family and some of our mutual friends have reached out to me telling me that it's unfair I am keeping the baby from him and I should let him visit more with his son. I don't think I am being unreasonable at all, seeing as this person can not pay child support but meanwhile has been stealing from me, and also is admittedly a drug addict who refuses to get help. Am I wrong here? What would you do? Honestly just looking for opinions. Sorry this is so long.
