Quoting Mommy&Noah:" My son couldn't go to daycare today because he was sick and I was supposed to work today but instead ... [snip!] ... just driving me crazy. I think I just need to do visitation and stuff through the courts instead of directly dealing with him."
I agree, if he really wants to be a part of his child's life then he will be but he cant keep skipping out when every he feels like it, make his visits mandatory, and if he still doesn't come see him then he misses out, that way he cant just drop by when ever he feels like it, I have my 7 yr old and 5 yr olds father on an every two week visitation schedule, if on 'his week end' he doesn't come get them he doesn't get them again until the next two week visit, and he also pays child support, if I don't receive a payment he doesn't get visits...this was just something I have done on my own, the courts have only ordered him to pay support, if he doesnt pay he goes to jail
