How many of you that share custody or over night visitations give everything you buy your kids for your home send it ALL to other Parents home? Clothes, toys, books, bikes etc.

***EDIT***
So most everyone feels that the other parent is capable of buying the kids stuff for their home. Why is it in another post the women acted like the OP was wrong for not wanting to send the kids home with things because they never see the stuff again? Some actually think its the kids responsibility to bring the things back, how many people actually think the kids have a say in bringing stuff back because the other parent isnt being spiteful or childish?

Thanks for your honesty and proving how so many moms on here like to argue and try way to hard lol. Bring on all those moms now that like the attention.

Nothing but the clothes on her back and a stuffed animal goes to her dad's house. Also it's not nice clothes because he doesn't care and will either keep it or ruin it.

My husband and I separated for a year. At that time we shared everything. It wasn't our stuff, it was the kids. Everything was fair game for them to take to either house.

We don't, because the things that have gone, never came back.

Every time I send my kids with their father - EVERY SINGLE TIME - things don't come home.  Clothes, toys, etc... he lives out of state so it's not like we can just run over and grab it, either... and good luck getting him to find/send stuff back.  It's SO annoying.  I've gotten to the point where I send them with the BARE minimum... three pairs of clothes each, and one toy.  I figure he can do a load of laundry like I do all year long if the clothes won't cover the stay... I can't afford to keep re-buying shit that doesn't return!

I used to have to send things but he would always keep them or loose them. One time we went to pick up the kids and my son had to come home bare footed because he lost his 1 year Old sons shoes and didn't offer to buy new ones so when we went to court I got it were he had to buy his own clothes for the kids and toys for the kids. Now he don't even see the kids cause he don't care

Ummm no.  We are raising nephews and have one full time with guardianship and one off and on.  The one that we have full time goes to his mom's for an overnight occasionally.  I send 1 outfit.  1 pair of pj's.  If she don't bring it back I don't send more until she does.  The other child, there is no trading clothes.  I have some for him at my house and he can wear his brother's clothes if he must.  I have sent him clothes home and back before and I never get the nice clothes I send him back, ever.  I refuse to continue buying clothes for her to lose them or sell them.

TANSTAAFL- There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

Some moms on here would call you a worthless POS because you do not want to continue to buy new things because the other parent deserves to keep it because you're being stingy with your money lol. Oh and you having nice clothes for your kids is wrong too because thats not providing for your kids if the other parent keeps them. ;)
