All this was not acknowledged my son doesn’t want me the judge refuse to listen he is using my son as a pawn to hurt me I am completely destroyed that’s what they do now. Ext court date January they are about to give him custody I don’t know what to do just cry and cry i was always with him took him everywhere please any insights

Hi Mizbluez,


I am so sorry to hear about the custody issues you are having between your ex and yourself at the moment. It sounds like this is a very distressing and complex situation involving verbal abuse and court orders.


How have you been coping with the stress of this?


Is there anyone that you trust that you have been able to talk to about this?


Have you considered reaching out to any support groups in your area for single parents?


Some online and offline parental support groups could provide some amazing insights into their own experiences with custody hearings and mixed family situations.
