I would like any kind of feedback on this issue...... I have a 7 year old son his mother and I were never married, never lived together, so the only thing my son has ever known is a 2 home life. For the first 5 years she had custody of him and a little over 2 years ago I (through courts) gained custody of him. Before I gained custody I had him every weekend and she had him all week. Now since i've recieved custody she has him every other weekend and every wednesday night. I have noticed that my son seems a bit emotional at time and some of the times I can sum up to him being competitive i.e. when he doesn't get a hit in baseball or doesn't swim the fastest. But there are other times he seems emotional like when it is the weekend when he is to go to her house and I forget to remind him that he will be staying with her over the weekend I usually get a phone call or text about how he is crying and is inconsolable. Is there something I should be doing other than making sure he is up to date with when he goes to his mothers house? In these calls she tends to bring up that she thinks he needs counselling because he is too emotional. Now he is an only child at my house but the oldest of 2 at his mothers house could this be a cause? Does anyone happen to know of any kind of things I should be looking for to let me know he might need to see a couselor? His school work is phenomenal he never brings home less than an "A" he even recieved recognition from the school superintendant. He has many friends at school and when we do weekend functions where other kids from school are there he interacts with them, runs, plays, does what kids do. He does come home some times and complain about a child or 2 but I figure this is normal is doesn't sound like bullying to me one child seems to have a catch phrase of "thats stupid" after everything my son says (he talks a lot very social). But at the same weekend events he is out playing with that same child so....... I don't know any help would be appreciated.
