Thank you to all who replied regarding my visit with my ds...when my oldest ds and I arrived with dd13, my middle ds and my ex husband were already seated at the Subway with ds eating lunch, so any hopes of having lunch with him went out the window.

Ok, so did you still leave your 13 yo dd with him for 2 weeks after all that he said?

Yes, it is a court ordered visitation schedule that we are on for Christmas-Summer breaks. However...when he returns dd13, we are going to sit down and have a talk. I have already done my homework this morning as far as services offered in his area. There are three agencies to choose from that offer treatment for our ds, and we will decide on which one after we look over the information that I bring along. If he says it isn't needed, he can't afford it (sliding scale fee's are offered) I am going to tell him that I consider our ds a child in need of care, since I am very familiar with youth and family services in my area
