My son doesn't have his own room: What can I do about it?

My ex-husband and I have been divorced for ten years. The ex still lives with his parents, and my son STILL does not have his own room. They have a room, kind of a catch-all room, but they won’t turn that room into my son’s own bedroom. Is that a form of abuse if my son is made for sharing a room with my ex-husband and sleeping on a cot or with his dad?

I shared a room with my parents until I was like 12.

My nieces and nephew still share a room and a bed and they’re like 9 and 10.

Abuse? Ugh no. As long has he has a place to sleep, a roof over his head, food, water and electricity hes taken care of.

How often does your child go to their dad? Not abuse.

It depends on where you’re at honestly. There are varying laws about it. Usually listed as overcrowding laws.

Abuse? That’s offensive to those who actually went through a form of abuse. :woman_facepalming:

I know a bunch of states have laws in place once the child reaches school age but I’ve never had to personally read into it. Maybe start there?

There are laws about pre teens of the opposite sex sharing a room, there are no laws keeping a father and son from sharing a room. How if the dad had female companions staying the night and his son is on the room with them during inappropriate times that would be a different story.

Wow just be glad he’s not abusing him. Maybe not the ideal situation but definitely not a crime

Mind ya own damn business :roll_eyes: as the judge told my hubbys ex wife, what goes on at the other parents house during their parenting times is not your concern.
