She gave 2 reasons.
1, She thinks the boys will miss me too much when they are with her and thinks they will miss her too much when they are with me.
2, She can't cope for a whole week without a break from the boys.
I think number 1 in nonsense and beleive the boys would be fine, I wouldn't be trying to change anything if I thought this would not improve things for the boys. I feel they would have much better quailty time with me and their mum.
As for number 2 when she said this i suggest that the week I don't have the boys at the weekend I could have them on the Thursday night. This would mean that she only had the boys for 5 days at the most. This suggestion was rejected because she beleives changing the day in the week would not be good for the boys.
I beleive that she doesn't want to change anything because she goes out on Tuesdays and Fridays.
If you need any more info please ask.
Thanks for you help.
That is what I currently do.
Not really what I wanted to do for 2 reasons;
I feel it is really important that as the boys get older they spend time at home at the weekends. This gives them a chance to do things with their friends, go to clubs etc near home every other week. I live*****away so they are not able to do this when they are with me. From my own experience my brother and I used to see our dad every saturday but as we got older we stopped going because we joined a club which happened on saturday. I don't want that to happen in the future.
Also this would mean that the boys don't get much quality time with their mum which I also think is important they do.
For some reason I have had an email from justanswer saying;
I'm sorry that you did not receive a satisfactory answer to your question. When a customer doesn't receive a helpful answer we encourage them to respond to the Expert and tell them why the answer wasn't helpful. This will accomplish two things:1) the Expert will work on a better answer, but if the answer is still not satisfactory, you can ask the Expert to opt out of the question and open it to other Experts and2) other Experts will be aware that you are still waiting for a helpful answer and they may respond on the page. You always have the choice of which answer to give a positive rating to and if you do not get a satisfactory answer, you do not have to give a positive rating at all.
I don't know why they have sent me this because I have not done this unless I have done it without knowing.
Are you still working on this? I would like you to carry on if you can please.
