My ex and his parents do not allow my son the ability to remove himself from the dinner table when he is feeling really overwhelmed.

What else can I do to get them to understand my child’s need?

We live in a different state, he spends summers with Biological Father. This year has been the hardest—no matter what I try, they just will not listen. I have encouraged my sons to self advocate, but this is a hard thing for him.
