Our expert says:
Getting back together as a miserable and unloving couple is not good for the child, and may not be necessary - she'd benefit more from a consistent relationship with two contented parents, even if they're not married or living together. If the mother really doesn't look aftwer the child properly, maybe he should go to court and establish that and seek custody to look after the child himself. A child does NOT need to live with an uncaring or neglectful mother - better to be properly cared for by someone who loves her, with access to the mother.
For him to continue seeing you while trying to create a proper relationship with the mother is not usually a good idea.
The recommendation of "retail therapy" is simply stupid.
Anon makes many really good points.
