My son turned 13 on Sunday, he was at his dad's for the weekend and came home pretty disappointed as he didn't even get a card.. Nothing.
He's not a greedy kid or anything, he got pretty spoilt from me and my family, but I feel bad for him. It's the first time his birthday has fallen on his dads weekend and thought it would be lots of fun, not just sitting around watching his dad sand his model cars and stuff....
thoughts? It's pretty slack, right?

Do your kids get birthday presents from your ex?

Aw, that sucks!! I'm not a single parent, but I think that is pretty slack.

What a di.ck. we always got presents from my dad on our birthdays (even though it was my stepmum organising it lol).

I really feel like saying something to him, it's not like he's an absent dad, he sees him regularly, but that would only make me feel better, not help anything.
He got so spoilt here, spent way more than I could afford on him and saved up for ages, but he is so worth it! Glad I did now..

That's disgusting that he didn't buy his son a present or do anything to celebrate the day 😡
I came from a split family and we always got presents from both parents & had a little celebration at both houses
This is how it has been for my nephews & dss too.

Yeah my youngest kids get presents from their dad, so they should too!
Wish he could've just stayed with me for the weekend...

That sucks. he could have made a small effort.

That is awful I think he should have something special organised even if that is a cake and meal or something.
If my kids birthdays fall on his time they are celebrated there and they get a present and cake. If they are here with me the next time they go to their Dads they celebrate.
