When I saw her tell Bill to take care of his son, that he isn't "the babysitter", that she believed he could get the boy to stay and suggested (or told) him how...and the kid was saying "I want mom", I thought why give in to a child and let him dictate what to do--he was with HIS FATHER for crying out loud. Why spoil the kid and take him home and baby him... I was spoiled as a child and paid for it dearly later on. I remember when I went to summer camp, I ended up having the time of my life but a friend I brought with me cried incessantly and had to have her parents pick her up the second day. I was appalled, I remember and thought this girl will never leave home! Anyway, we're all entitled to our opinion. I just thought the kid was a brat!
I think that maybe Katie should have been dealing with situation before it got to this point. Why has she waited so long before talking to Bill about Will. Oh, that's right she was busy with Wyatt. She told Bill, 'He (Will) misses you.' It certainly didn't seem like Will missed Bill. He wanted to go home to his mother. Katie decided to dump Will that night because she wanted to have sex with Thorne. Bill tried to tell her that it wouldn't work, that it was too soon and Katie wouldn't listen.
Her moments with Wyatt is not the problem. Will looks about 6 now. It should have been addressed before Wyatt. And during that time Katie was single, in a slum and raising Will alone while BIll was meddling. Bell just simply did not care to address it until now. Thorne should stay out of it though.
Katie has not been raising Will in a slum. Katie lives next door to Eric.
When Katie was with Wyatt it seemed that the time that they usually spent together was during the day when Will would have been in school.
It has apparently been a while since Bill has spent any quality time with Will. Attending his son s games is not the same thing as spending time with your child. Bill was completely awkward with his son.
There was nothing wrong with Katie wanting to have some private time with her beau. Maybe Will overheard Bill and Katie talking. From the conversation Will would have picked up that his father was not really keen on having him spend the night. Add to that the fact that Thorne was already present when Bill arrived to pick up Will would have left Will feeling that he was being sent away so that Mom could spend time with another man.
The actor playing new Will is said to be 9 years old. Children this age can very quickly pick up on how to manipulate the parents.
