At what point would they cut short a supervised visit if it's the child with the problem and the parent is not "technically" doing anything wrong?
My eight month old son will be going to supervised visitation with his father probably starting next week. The judge left it up to us and our lawyers to pick a day and time, but I'm gonna set it up for an hour at a time, because he is a stranger to my son (and safety is an issue, also.) His father... let's just say, would not cut a visit short no matter how upset my son is, because to him, visitation is all about HIM getting to see HIS son, not his son's time to see him, know what I mean? He's pushing to take our son for full weekends, even though our son does not know him, has not seen him in 6 months, and repeatedly threatens filing for full custody, because it's all about possession of property.
Anyways, My son gets very upset, inconsolable (except by me) sometimes. He will cry hysterically, become covered in sweat, fight to get out of whoever's holding him's arms, vomit (from being upset), and cry so hard he holds his breath. The visitation place told me "if he's gonna cry for his father, he's gonna cry for the supervisor, so they don't really cut visits short" and I will have to leave, because I have a restraining order against his father. Mamas with experience with supervised visitation... do these places REALLY hold a child for an hour, two hours, whatever, because it's the father's time, even if the child is doing more than just crying? If so, is there a way to prevent it, or at least put some kind of limit on it? If I forced my son to sit on a stranger's lap and he was hysterically screaming and I continued to force him to sit on a stranger's lap and be kissed all over by this stranger, CPS would be called on me for child abuse, but it's okay to do if it's forced supervised visitation with a father?
