I need some help understanding something.
Why do parents take the other to court and try to take away their rights or make it to where they can not see their child when that other parent is a good parent? I can understand if the other parent was a bad parent, but anymore I see so many people battling over custody when both parents are good. For instance, my sisters ex took her to court when they split up and tried to get full custody. Not because she was a bad parent, but because he was pissed at her.
My sons father and I have never been to court. We mutually agreed upon visitations, ect and it works out fine. Hes a great father, though he was HORRIBLE boyfriend, but what happened between us doesnt change the fact of him being a good father.
With a child, shouldnt one put what is best for their child first? To not act out of their own selfish desires and grudges? I dont understand laides. Any input?
