We don't do schedules. Especially in the summer

Dh and I have 50/50 custody one week on one week off with both my kids and his.

We drive BM insane because she is very into structure and schedules and organization and we aren't. During the school year, we do have bed time by necessity but that's really it.

She is already bitching and moaning because the kids are tired when she gets them back and it and because they get to stay up late and sleep in at our house they are complaining about going to bed and getting up on a schedule at hers. She is trying to tell dh that they have to follow her schedule at our house from now on.

Ha! So not going to happen. She may have a stick up her butt but we don't and the kids love the freedom they have here.

The kids always get screwed when parents use them as pawns.

The kids aren't getting screwed by us. They can actually relax and enjoy their summer at our house.

You don't have to follow her schedule, but the parents should sit down as mature, responsible adults and find a compromise that works for them, and more importantly has the best interests of the kids as a priority.

That will never happen. Bm is seriously uptight.

And it sounds like you and your husband are immature, so clearly, that is never going to happen. Uptight and immature tends to not work out well.
