this is awesome for something where both parents want to see their children, but not so helpful for the one's who have the parents that don't want anything to do with their children and the children trying tofind their other parent :(

Totally agree.  It is all well and good to say do not speak negatively of the other parent, which I have no problem with.  But what do you say when it is blaring obvious that the other parent does not love the children??  When everything they say and do is absolute undeniable proof that they do not love the children?   With kids 11 and 14, believe me, they know what love looks like, and what it does not.

This is very helpful if both parents are willing to split custody, but i myself want full custody with no visitation rights to the father

I have 2 girls 9 and 11, one of them is daddy's little girl the other don't get as much affection as she should. and sometime I feel she is aware of what's going on around her. We are currently in court for custody and their law guardian  asked my 9 yr old if should would rather move with her dad, she quick said no, but my 11 yr old would love the idea. I mean how should I handle that?

I agree to this but how do you make the other parent adhere to this.
