Mike Love's Grown Folks Conversation mailbag…
I'm VERY ACTIVE in my son's life. He's 6 years-old, I pay child support, and if I see something that I want him to have, I'll buy it for him. Anyway, one day his older sister tells me his mother called him, and he was watching something on TV and he ignored her. So, her boyfriend said in a stern voice, "DIDN'T YOU HEAR YOUR MOTHER CALLING YOU?"…… When I asked my son about it, he said "My mommy boyfriend be screaming and hollering at me and I don’t like him”
I look at it like this….if he was taking care of him, providing for him, and I wasn't in his life, then maybe he could say something…..but dammit, he got a daddy in his life and he's only her BOYFRIEND, not her husband, and I don’t appreciate him trying to check my child. I don’t feel that it's his place and he needs to stay in his lane. I asked my son's mother about this, she said in a weak and timid voice, "Ummm, he didn't mean any harm, he was just trying to teach him to have respect for his mother" Well, that's MY place, not his. What do you think? Should I confront him?
Should a father who lives outside of the house but pays child support have a say on the way his son or daughter is disciplined by the NEW man of the house if that man is just a boyfriend and not the husband.
