Calvin68 Posted April 18, 2010 Share Posted April 18, 2010 My friend lives in the US. She is from Brazil and has a 5 year old back there. When she left, about 3 years ago, her son stayed with her parents. This is actually pretty common - she's from a poor part of the country and came her to make money. At the time she left, her ex (the boy's father) was not in the picture at all and only saw him just a couple times a year, if that. About 4 months ago, the ex went to my friend's parents house to take the kid on vacation. He never brought the kid back and now their son lives with the ex in a different city. The kid seems happy there and cries at the thought of having to return to his grandparent's house again to live. The last month or so, the kid does not want to talk to my friend (his mother) on the phone. They used to talk every day. Now she gets to talk to him just a minute or two maybe once a week. Very often, she's told he's sleeping or not home. Sometimes the kid just refuses to talk on the phone with her. He's become a little rude at times. I suspect the ex is poisoning the kid against his mother. Buy maybe it's normal for a five year old not to want to talk on the phone. Thought would be appreciated. Link to comment
