Going away without my son

My boyfriend is arranging a big family holiday abroad for his sisters 40th birthday next year. This will include his parents, his sister, her husband and their 3 kids and then me, him and his 7 year old daughter. He’s planning to go away in the beginning of July as it’s cheaper and he’s just going to take his daughter out of school. I have an 11 year old son and I won’t be able to take him out of school as I’d be penalised and my son’s father would definitely kick off about it - which I don’t need. It doesn’t feel right to me to go without my son as he’d feel left out and I’ve told my boyfriend that he should just go with his family. He says it’s not a big deal for me to go without my son as he wants me there. I think it is. Am I wrong? He’s asking me to do some research for the holiday and I don’t really want to if I’m not going (I haven’t told him that). Am I being unreasonable?

I don't think you're unreasonable at all! I wouldn't leave my kids at home!it may not be a big deal to everyone but It would be to me and it is you too, so you're in your every right to not go, how long have you been with him?

I couldn’t go without my son either. I’d stay

I wouldn’t feel right going without my child especially if your partners child is going to be there but if you share custody with his dad and it would be normal for him to be with him for the week anyway then I could see why your partner is saying he wants you to go. It’s your choice either way do what you feel comfortable with x
