My boys are 4 and 6, and their dad and I are split. We are SUPPOSED to have joint custody which by defination is 7 nights spent with him out of 14....he has them for 4 out of 14. And no child support. Part of the agreement was the boys go to school where I live, and on holiday breaks he takes them. The last two holiday breaks I've had them most of the time. If he can't find a babysitter for the holiday break, it's my fault and I just have to take them (ok not that I really mind but not the point)
He knows my oldest has homework for kindergarten. Ok it's very simple stuff (practice writing your name, practice counting to 50, draw a picture, help with supper, help with a chore at home, ect.) but he never asks for what homework is for the weekend. The one time I did give him specific what homework was for that weekend it didnt even get done!
All over on his and his fiance's facebook is bragging about what electronics they are playing with (daddies phone, wii 2, psp, watching dvd's). No wonder they don't want to come home to my house! I actually have them do homework and study! I sent a folder with a few flash cards and a book that he needs to practice, He's behind on reading from the rest of his class.The flash cards are "sight words" he should be able to look at and reconize. Out of 33 he knows 11. But I highly doubt they are working with him at all. When I told him I put a folder in the medicine bag we pass back and forth he just looked at me as if I had two heads.
And he wonders why I don't think the kids should be going to school with him. Ok rant over
