my 11yo stepson is dealing with a lot, depression and now on medication. He's been going to therapy steady for about 6 weeks now, my WH takes him, XW rarely does. XW called us on Sunday evening and said she had concerns about the therapist and refused to go back. Seems the therapist told her on their last visit - over a month ago - "SS was being emotionally abused at our house" and of course, she didn't believe her, doesn't think the therapist reported it but why would the therapist make a claim like that and the XW thinks SS needs a new therapist, in fact she was looking for one.
WTH? A month ago and you're just telling us now? WH had a therapy appt for him the next day and promised to talk to the therapist. Said therapist denied saying anything like that, said they did the standard questions but she in fact does not believe there is any abuse going on. In fact, believes WH is an engaged and active parent - much more so than XW.
So now what? XW clearly made up this lie for some reason. I am clueless as to why. I am very worried. I have sole custody of my 13 yo son, but his father doesn't play around and is not happy about my WH's affair which my son disclosed to him. If the XW is starting to make allegations and waves, if CPS starts an investigation, then I could potentially lose my son. His father has no leg to stand on at this moment, but that would give him the ammunition needed to try to take him. I cannot have that.
I don't like dealing with crazy. WH and I are almost done anyways, and this, tops the cake.
WH was supposed to confront XW with the lie but "hasn't had time"...he'll try today.
Has anyone else dealt with this? I am breaking under all this strain.
