My 8 year old son has turned against me because I have found a new partner after 9 months of seperation.
Him and I had a great relationship, we always did things together.
His mother has had a lot to do with him turning against me, she tells him my partner is "Dumb" and "Stupid" and that she will be his "New mummy"
He has had major anxiety issues over this to the point of the ex holding him back from school and I have even agreed and paid for him to visit a psychologist.
He got on the phone to me the other day and said "I don't want to see you or talk to you anymore" and that was it.
My daughter whom is younger then my son, seems to have no issues with my new partner and she has even lied to her mother about my partner being at my house which leads me to believe she is feeding a lot more negative stuff into their heads then I originally thought.
It's as though my daughter feels she has to protect herself and me from telling the ex that my partner has been at my place.
Sad set of circumstances I know, but has anyone else experienced this kind of behaviour?
Should I just let it go in the hope that my son will realise that life isn't all that bad or should I do something? What?
Mind you my ex. has had numerous partners since our split.
