There has been court proceding regarding contact since my child was born. Mother has shown nothing but implacable hostility.
My question is this:
During supervised contact, mum does not respond, encourage or aknowledge her child when he is trying to engage with me. She just puts her head down when he asks or shows her something he''s done with me.
This makes me having to work really hard to get my child to engage with me. She makes my child feel guilty for engaging with me, its awful and I dont know what to do or what the long term damage might be to my child.
Can anyone tell me why she would behave this way if she loves her child-and maybe some advice please
How long have you been having supervised contact ? If its since he was born and you can care for him alone, then could you move to unsupervised? there could be any number of reasons for how she is behaving....
It has been supervised contact since he was born and I think you are absolutaly right - I should have unsupervised contact by now. But she is such a drama queen and CAFCASS seem to dance around her tune at the moment.
