Look, I've never once said he was a deadbeat or anything of the sorts. I'm looking at it in different ways, and one of those ways is I know how construction guys live. It's no different from cable linemen. And oh the stories I could tell...
OP, is there a middle spot your son could live where he could still commute to his job but also a better environment for the kids?
I never said he goes to work, comes home and holes up in his room pinning away for his kids he never sees. However, to describe him as some carefree guy who doesn't care about his kids and is living fat and free as a bachelor has not been proven. I am not saying you said that but plenty on this thread seem to believe it without any proof.
