My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you. I am reviewing your question now, and will respond further within a few minutes
How old are the children?
How long does he leave them home alone for?
Are there any court orders setting out what time the children spend with each of you?
I am afraid that to a degree he is correct.
When they are with him he is able to decide what they do without consulting you, provided that it is safe.
Given their ages walking to a close local shop is unlikely to be seen as unsafe in itself. Leavung them home alone ofr half an hour might be acceptable - any longer than that is not.
In general terms if it is likely that Social Services would see it as questionable then that is something you can challenge, anything else will no doubt be called "different parenting styles"
These are however issue sthat could be discussed using Family Mediation to avoid stressing the children with opposing attitudes
I am sorry that this is not clear cut - very little in family law is
Please ask if you need further details
I am sorry but a Parenting plan cannot force consultation on all issues although it is a useful framework for identifying what things you both feel should be discussed
