Hi single parents! How do you cope with being the NOT preferred parent? They say a mom and son bond is unbreakable but my son always chooses his dad 🥲 no matter how hard I try for our relationship, he always misses his dad even if they spent the whole week together. I love that their relationship is strong, but still hurts to know he’s fine without me but not his dad!

Because moms are usually more strict and dad’s more laid back. He loves you both so I would not worry. This is very healthy for the Child

My older girl (8) is very attached to her dad. We separated 1.5 yrs ago and he travels a lot so she’s used to him being gone but she misses him immensely. It definitely feels like he has benefited since sometimes I keep my 2.5 yr old with me when she goes to see him since LO cries hysterically with him at night so I sometimes just let my older one go to have quality time. It sucks in a way because I’d like to have that quality time with her but I think as your son grows and becomes more aware of how difficult it is to be a single mom, he’ll learn to love and appreciate you even more. Just have open communication with him but not too much to where he feels your everyday stresses.
