I am new to this board. I have been dating a man whom has a 10 yr. old son w/ ADD (on concerta) and has major anxiety issues (per the father). I have yet to meet the son. He primarily lives with the Mom, and Dad has him ever other weekend and 2 nights a week. I was never married and have no children. This whole thing is overwhelming and I am trying to understand.
Is it normal for a 10 year old to say to the father, "I do not want furniture in my room, as I am sleeping with you "? The father still cuts the kid's food and place milk in the cereal bowl. My niece whom is 7, does this herself...and I am not comparing or putting down children with ADD. I am just trying to understand. The child has been afraid he is going to be kidnapped since he was 5 (he has been continually in counseling) and this issue still exists. The father cannot take the dog for a walk
