Do you think if a parent just takes there scheduled time nothing more that is a bad parent?

It's not a bad parent ... it's a responsible one. If you want them to have more visitation, you go back to court to have it arranged legally ... you don't ask them to break the law.

No, they're a bad parent if they frequently take their children less then their scheduled time though IMO.

That in and of itself doesn't make them a bad parent, not necessarily a good one either...

no just following their court order i would assume.. if they were seeing the child less than scheduled time I would say that was bad..but idk the situation

It all depends on the situation. I know lots of non custodial parents that want more time with their kids than what is court ordered, but the custodial parent refuses.

Then there is the case where the non custodial parent only takes the court ordered time because they think that is all that they are allowed. 

Family court really does favor the moms.
