My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Kansas
I recently posted about keeping sole custody and not allowing my 6yo son's mother to see him too much. She has mental health issues and it is starting to affect my son. She cries in front of him and has been known to throw tantrums in front of him. She's 27 and lives with her parents. She's still into the party lifestyle and is still pretty irresponsible.
He tells me not to say her name, "Mommy" because it makes him sad. He wants to see her more but her lifestyle and living situation isn't suitable for him. Not to mention, she can't drive due to 4 DUIs. He has been so emotional over this and I don't know how to explain he can't see her as much as he'd like. He cries often about very minor things and about her. He already lost her for 8 months when she was in jail. I don't want to hurt him from keeping him from her but it's hurting him even getting to see her every other weekend. He says her house is more fun because my wife and I impose more rules than his mother. She never tells him no or disciplines him.
I'm at a loss about what to do. I was thinking about seeing a child psychologist. Is this a good idea or is there someone else I should see? Please help. Right now I legally don't even have to let her see him but I thought I was doing a good thing.
Thank you for your help.
