I am picking up my son for a few hours tomorrow and would very much like to avoid the drama these meetings usually end in, I really do not have the strength. What I want to ensure is that he knows I care and am interested in his life but also that I can no longer give him money and be manipulated by him. Do I just bite my tongue and say nothing and try to enjoy it? I always find our meetings so draining but I desperately want to maintain a relationship with him. My feelings towards him are all over the place...anger, love, despair, sorrow.. so hard. Any advice would be appreciated.
