Seriously.....what is with so many posts reporting that these dads have jobs that seriously hinder their ability to be a present and good dad?
I know that times are tough and that jobs are scarce but, so many posts are coming from SM's who say that he is barely home due to his job.
Everyones jobs take time away from being with your children to a certain degree. But, so much time that it is SM left with his kids while they are visiting?
Is this really OK? It seems very disproportionate compared to what kind of jobs women will accept because they know that SOMEONE has to feed, bath, homework and all the other incidentals for the kids.
I am of the staunch opinion that if dad has taken a job that severely hinders his ability to do even the most basic of parenting duties, and he is relying on SM to take his visitation for him for over 80% of the time allotted, custody should be modified and the child should remain with the parent who can actually be there for the kid.
