  • Yep. That's not enough time to do any "real" parenting.

  • Maybe not enough time to do any "real" parenting-- but how many mothers out there limit the dads to every other weekend despite them wanting more time?

    so by that logic..a parent who is, say in Iraq, isn't doing ''real parenting''? or what about the mom's who ..yeah, what she^said.

  • Assuming that this father is only seeing his children every other weekend by CHOICE... then I consider him to be a father of convenience. sadly that is still better than some dads out there.

  • Sperm donor! Lol!!
    Regardless if it's by choice or not, if ur a parent every other weekend it really limits ur Childs experience w u (da dad). N I'm referring to parents w limited custody not parents abroad. Military parents r gone for a short period compared to the dads I'm referring to that have them every other weekend for their entire childhood.
