Today, I found out that my ex let my son eat nothing but cereal and milk for every single meal during his five-day visit. Now my son shrieks, cries, and has a meltdown if I try to make him eat real food. My ex merely replied, "Your problem now." FML

People always say this but it depends on the child. I've known two separate children who made themselves very sick by refusing to eat. One's parents eventually gave up and just started letting the kid fix his own meals. The other one wound up in the Behavioral health hospital being threatened with having a feeding tube inserted. I know that for a lot of kids the "If they don't want what they are served then they don't eat" thing works but there are definitely kids in the world who are willing to starve before giving in.

I wouldn't let this man near your kid unless he's the biological father, and if he is, you can always go back to your divorce decree with the court to limit his visitations. My father either wouldn't feed me or he'd take me to Old Country Buffet once a day, maybe once every 2 days, and tell me to eat till I throw up.

I have a lifelong eating disorder because if this.

It's not worth it for your son.
