Comments: That wasn't very sensitive of me.

While it's too bad that Boopie had to see that, maybe it's something that he needed to see, too.

Man, I hate that y'all are even IN that position. Been in a similar one, and I didn't handle it so well. One time. One time I lost it....

But T1G is right. As bad as it feels that Boopie was there, sometimes it takes things like that to wake them up. May not happen right away, but he'll think on it. That's a pretty sure thing....

Just my 2 cents ...

Sounds like maybe all this lying Boopie has been doing was for covering for his father.

Maybe the father has been telling him if Boopie doesn't do this that Boopie will never get to see his father again, blah blah blah. Like the father is laying a huge guilt trip on Boopie and Boopie is buying all the lies.

Maybe all the guilt tripping by his father is getting to Boopie and causing him to act out against you because he can't act out against his father.

Because you know that physical abuses isn't the only kind of abuse parents can heap on their kids, Boopie maybe going through some mental abuse from his father.

Yeah, what QW said there!

Dang!
What a pile that guy is.
I agree that calling a turd a turd might be what Boopie needs to hear.
Most kids belive their parents are "normal" until someone points out otherwise.

Let us know if this revelation changes anything.

I'm going to have to agree with QW. Also, though it wasn't the best thing for Boopie to see that, at least he know how much you love him!

I'm with everyone else... what a waste of oxygen this guy is... but as Boopie's father with visitation, he certainly can pull the guilt card and make his son feel horrible.

I'm pretty sure that no matter how bad it was, Boopie need to hear it. *sigh* I'm so sorry you have to go through all this.
