I went to see my son in jail Friday afternoon. He seems to be in good spirits. He's the type that gets along well with others, so he's not having any problems. When his father (my ex) found out he was in jail, his first comment was "leave him in there, I'm not helping him get out" That's kind of how it's always been, he's a father when the kids are good, but let them do something wrong and he writes them off. He hasn't had any contact with my son for over 3 months, but now he wants my son to write him. My son being the loving person he is called me today wanting his dad's address (he lives in another town). I did give him the address, but for some reason I feel a little hurt that he would reach out to his dad when I'm the one that has done everything, going to court, going to visist him, giving him money, paying his bills while he's locked up. Do I have a right to feel a tinge of jealousy or even anger? I haven't told my son about these feelings, should I?
