I've been a single mom for a bit over a year now. I'm a great mother (so everyone tells me) but my ex largely ignores our son and I know that he's got a short temper and isn't as patient as he should be with a toddler. My son freaks out when I tell him that daddy is going to pick him up. He tells me that daddy doesn't take him anywhere or do anything. Anf he tells me that daddy gets mad a lot and yells. Do I just keep being the best mom I can be and try to make up the difference or do I talk with my ex?

Thanks. I will have a talk with him. I'm not all that sure that he's a good dad. At least he wasn't all that great for the first 2 years of my son's life.
Agree with Christin, but one other point. The conversation with dad needs to be about how your son feels, NOT how you feel. Your feelings are irrelevant since he likely is bitter with you. Make it all about your son and avoid phrases like "I think"
