My son needs his mother

Update posted by Svetlana Brengauz On Dec 01, 2018

Zeno returned from his scheduled weekend at his dad 23-26 November. He was forced to watch a movie "about a boy(s) loosing their mum forever... and doing fine after that anyway". Zeno could not walk out or turn off dad's laptop, but he switched off his brain from that movie to some other thoughts. This fact is the only thing he remembered. The movie is an old style black and white and very boring - this is what he tells me. I guess it is something released in early 60-s and popular in UK in particular - does this ring the bell to anyone? Please let me know if you can remember what this could be - I am simply curious. Interesting fact, that I am accused in the other parent alienation...

HOWEVER, we had few fantastic days in Auckland over the New Year days. between 29 December and 2 January we had: Sky Tower, Kelly Tarltons, MOTAT, made a breakthrough in swimming (Zeno learnt to breath, so is actually SWIMMING NOW), indoor skiing, Monster Scooters in Whangarei. It is really my only opportunity to take Zeno to all Auckland attractions. After driving to this crazy city 2-3 times a week for work, it is impossible to drive with the child over the weekend, so yes, it had to be a packed holiday, but it is worthwhile.

4 December 2019. Zeno just left for another week at his dad. Same as two weeks ago, he was already really upset the previous night, he was crying several times before his pick up time at 3 pm, and practically did not eat anything for the whole day, despite me and grandma trying to make him to eat at least anything. Instead of a proper usual lunch meal, we only managed to get him to eat a small Eskimo.

Zeno was at a sleepover at his classmate the other day. Classmate’s dad asked Zeno if he goes to his dad the next afternoon. Zeno was about to burst into tears and told him that he is fearful of his dad and that he kicks and yells at him. This father was shocked and did not even know how to handle this.

Holidays is no fun... on a "week-about basis" ================================== As per the current court ruling, Zeno spends his holidays at each parent on a week-about basis. It is an awful arrangement, as it is so hard to plan any activities, catch up with any school gaps. For example, Zeno needs to go to the swimming pool every day, he still can’t swim. Last year, our priority was to learn to read and write in English - this is accomplished. Now, he needs to focus on his Russian language. How can one do such things in situation of a PARALLEL PARENTING? Especially with such type of a father? Do nothing? Forget about any development like the father wants, or to become a "bad mother" and keep doing WHAT YOUR CHILD NEEDS THE MOST?

One more "highlight" from the last weekend. Zeno keeps asking me: "Why our family is stupid? Our family is not stupid..". He says his dad always says this. Aе one occassion, Zeno started to speak to his dad right away, i.e. he forgot to start from "excuse me". His dad yelled at him for few minutes saying that "all _your_ stupid family does this". I guess, кошка знает, чье мясо съела.
