Hey @Mssassy, just checking in to see if you were able to chat with your son today about choosing a different communication platform?
It must be lovely having him home with you. I hope you've had an awesome day with him. Do you have 50-50 custody?

Hi @Mssassy Invading one's privacy is such a rude act. I’m sorry to hear about your issue but I think the best solution is to communicate with them about what you really feel. I hope you’ll be fine soon.

Mssassy, this situation occurs with many parents. One thing you can do is to divert his mind and put his energy in to some productive tasks like sports, gym, or any hobby. This will encourage him to talk to you directly when he feels happy spending time at a productive task. You can give some rewards also after completion of tasks to him.

Hi there @Justamum and welcome to ReachOut
It's wonderful to hear that you still have a great friendship with your kids dad. As @Mssassy has already said, it can be so helpful for kids to see both of their parents being able to get along. For some couples, separating can be difficult on both parties and the kids, but it sounds like you both did what was best for you and it sounds like it's going well
I'm sorry to hear that your partner doesn't like that you do things with your ex. Often, as you've said, partners can believe that something will happen and it can be difficult to help them understand. Perhaps it might help if your partner organises a gathering? Sometimes being in control of the location and event can help ease the anxiety of a meeting. What do you think?
It can also help to talk to other people, such as a professional, about what's going on. Do you think that's something you or your partner would be interested in?
