Our expert says:
OK, so he sounds like a nice kid who has been spoiled by inappropriately guilty parents ( who probably ought to feel more guilty about spoiling and over-indulging him than over the divorce). Apparently the pevious arrangement meant that in a real sense you had only the best of each other --- the fun, weekend times ; and now have to share the chores of homework, etc. Its terribly sad that this thoughtless boy has so deeply hurt his loving nfather, apparently for no very clear reason. Is there a possibility that a meeting of the adult trio of you could sort out a better plan for handling this ? Or is there a possibility that his mom has been angling to achieve this result ?
Though the views of a child need to be taken into account, he shouldn't be encouraged to chop and change the access arrangements for small and petty reasons. Maybe a counsellor in even one or two sessions could morem clearly understand what is going on with the boy ?
