DS prefers ex's for holidays

The title says it ...

the reason why .... He feels lonely when DH's family gets together

DS has no relationship with most of DH's family, only times he sees them is every other holiday, in mass.

I'm sorry, snafu. That must make you feel lonely, too.

That's sad. DH's family is never around except on holidays?

Re: DS prefers ex's for holidays

I know this post was from a while ago, however, I do remember those times as if they were yesterday....they hurt so badly when the child wants to be with the other parent....but it's not at all a rejection of whoever the child is leaving...not in the least....and regardless of what we think of our ex's, the child's happiness and welfare has to come first.

Lots of times, it is a lesson for us as well, to let them go.

I'd always leave the decision to my son, b/c I never ever wanted him to feel as if he was being played tug of war with.

And yes, it's a huge hurt to not have them on these special days, however, for me, it would have hurt more, to think that my son wanted to be some place he was not.

Hugs Snafu and to everyone who understands this and lets go...it ain't easy, but no one ever said, life would be easy.
