I finally have final orders which says my 6yr old has to travel 6hrs Friday afternoon after school to her fathers house, (I drive 2hrs to meet him) they spend the weekend then she has to travel 6hrs back home Sunday afternoon. She is a wreck Sunday afternoon and the next 3 days are hell with her breaking down crying.
There is nothing I can do about it but wait till her tiny body gets use to it. I wish I had the guts to let her stay home Monday mornings as I think that would help her.
This all means she misses out on several friends birthdays and she can never play a weekend sport.
For your situation I suggest you speak to your sons teacher and make them aware of his situation. Also try speaking to maybe the school councillor making them aware of the situation (I promise he wouldn't be the only child) and see if you can work something out. Maybe some school work that you both can sit down and do together Monday mornings that he'd be missing out on.
I think being honest with the school will get you a long way. That way nothing can come back and bite you as they know about it.
