Moms who send thier kids to Dads house EVERY WEEKEND

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
When do you spend time with your kids? Do you work on weekends? Do you think it's fair that you get every weekend off while dad never gets a free weekend? Are you in a new relationship and want to spend all weekend laying around with your bf or party? I have 3 kids and my ex and I do EOW visitation so we alternate weekends with the kids. I work all week so if I sent then away every weekend I'd barely see them and wouldn't be able to do fun things with them. I'm curious to know the logic behind every weekend visitation?

Not saying the father shouldn't enjoy his kids but maybe he wants to have free time to himself as well. Kids every single weekend while the mom has off seems off balance unless the mom is working. And it seems like too much back and forth between houses.

Why shouldn't the father get to enjoy his kids too?

Umm the dad only seeing them every weekened is only 8 days a month thats not a lot at all. So hows it fair the mom goes nine months carrying the baby, then has them everyday and dad gets to do what he wants all week long when mom only gets two days to do what she wants. I personally think some dads get off easy, even when living with them bc moms always the one there for them and doing most things for them.

When do you spend time with your kids? In the mornings before school, and in the evenings.

Do you work on weekends? No

Do you think it's fair that you get every weekend off while dad never gets a free weekend? Yes. He WANTS to see his children, because, you know, he LOVES them.

Are you in a new relationship and want to spend all weekend laying around with your bf or party? No, what a stupid things to ask.

 I have 3 kids and my ex and I do EOW visitation so we alternate weekends with the kids. I work all week so if I sent then away every weekend I'd barely see them and wouldn't be able to do fun things with them. Good for you. That works for you guys. Your ex is fine with hardly seeing his kids, mine wouldn't be.

I'm curious to know the logic behind every weekend visitation? It's what I wanted and it's what my ex wanted. It works great for us :)

 I think reasonable people that want to work together as a team would want the children to spend equal amounts of time with each parent if possible.  I guess in your situation, your kids' dad finds them to be a hinderance to his plans.  Not all dads are like that.  Some welcome time with their children as much as possible.

This exactly. Plus the children will need to be in ONE school all week which will be with whatever parent they spend the week with presumably... Too many factors to just say dad deserves weekends off.

who cares and talk about fair...How is it fair for the women to have the kids all week and do everything she has to while the man only sees the kids 4 days a month? How is it fair that dad only gets to see his kids 4 days a month?

My son lives with his dad full time, is with me EOW. Better schools where his dad lives. Works just fine for us.

Lmao too much for the dad? Um really hes got all week to do what he wants, and when mom was pregnant for nine months dad still got to do what he wanted. Lmao every weekend isn't going to hurt poor old daddy, if he's a man hes gonna put his childs needs before his own

So when does the dad see the children?  How fair is it that he doesn't have any of the responsibility?

My ex loves our kids too much to only see them EOW.

He'd rather be a little tired and spend time with his kids, than sleep in or party and miss out on making memories with them.
