I fear that one of my kids is likely going to have a rough visit with his Mom this weekend



The boys will be going to visit their Mom and Grandparents this weekend. I’m a little concerned about Elliott because he’s going into this visit already upset about a particular rule that his Mom has established.

I get where she’s coming from with this and understand the principle. While I may think it’s a really stupid battle to pick, it’s not really a big deal, so I’ve opted to not involve myself.  If it was something even sort of significant, I would deal with but this really isn’t anything I’m worried about. 

It’s going to amount Elliott being upset because he’s not allowed to do something he wants to. As this has been building since last week, Dr. Pattie and I have both already spoken to him about this and told him it’s best to let it go. We’ll see if he actually ends up doing that.

I’m hoping, as always, that they all have a fantastic visit because it’s important to take advantage of whatever time they have to spend with their Mom.



Unfortunately, Elliott’s not even remotely close to being in a place where he can just let things go. I mean, this kid will just chew on something forever and not let it go.  I always refer to these things as a scooter and I’ll say to him, Elliott, you can’t ride this scooter forever man, you’ve got to put it down and walk away because it’s just not worth it.

If you looked up work in progress, you would see my trying to help Elliott through all this shit, as a prime example of what it’s defined as. 

I know my family has forever changed but I’d really like to see all the boys have as healthy and happy of a relationship with their Mom as is possible.  Admittedly, it’s been an uphill battle thus far but we’ve made some major-ish progress and that’s a big, ginormous positive… ☺

You’re Switzerland!!!! Since my kiddos are probably NT, I can use different language with them. Like you, we ‘pick our battles’ but we also identify whether or not this is ‘the hill you are willing to die on.’ Of course it isn’t because we are advocating violence or use threats, but rather we all need to be good generals and evaluate the battlefields of life, recognize where the difficulties lie and decide how to address or avoid them in order to advance to our goal. Your goal is to raise happy and healthy, productive adults. You will pick which areas… Read more »
