i have a journal and i write down things
when he swears at kids, when he has left three yr old outside alone, when i took her for weekend, came home with her in same clothes, hair never combed and no eye drops given for two days
can this personal journal of mine be used in court? should i be doing anything else to make it more legal-like be sure to date it or i do not know
it is his word against me, but he is not being a responsible adult , can i use this to help show tht he is not fit father for alone visitations
(i am not perfect-but i comb hair, bathe her, change her clothes, do not swear at and never leave her outside unattended, and make sure she has her meds!)

Possibly if it is a personal journal. Not changing a child's clothes, combing hair, or giving a bath for 2 days wouldn't be reasons for not getting visitation. Many parents do these things and it's not going to hurt a child. Kids only need baths twice a week. The vast majority of parents swear at their kids and hit them. If you make a big deal out of things that are standard parenting in the US it could hurt you. Most people aren't responsible adults and it doesn't sound like there are reasons for supervised visitation. You say you aren't perfect (I suggest you never say that agian). It sounds like an excuse for bad behavior. Other things to avoid saying that people that work with parents are trained to look for are - I do my best & my kids are my life.

Next question overall
Do you think pregnant women should sit home and do nothing? Just to be safe!
