What is your parenting time schedule?

I feel like my ss has a hard time with transitions and the way the parenting schedule is set up, he is not at either parents house long enough.

one week is sunday through tuesday at moms house then tuesday through friday at our house then friday through wednesday at moms then wednesday through sunday at our house. I feel its affecting him behaviorly but, I have no proof because this blended family thing is all new to me.

My husband and ss mother are talking about a Tuesday night through next thursday morning at moms house then thursday night through tuesday morning at our house. [I think thats what they are talking about ]

Mine are supposed to see their mom every other weekend, but it's usually only once every 6 weeks.

I'm sorry your step son is having a difficult time! ((Hugs))

Thank you for your reply. I would love to have my ss schedule go to every other weekend because I feel the back and forth is not working for him.

Tony's son goes to his Moms house 2 days a week. Every so often he will have an extra day with her or my SO, but it's fairly consistent that it's only 2 days a week.

Both myself and DH have sole custody of our kids. My boys see their dad every other weekend and DSD sees her mom every other weekend as well. It works well for us because their routine isn't interrupted very often.

During the school year, we're supposed to get her every other weekend, which has turned into one weekend a month. And during the summer it's every other week. Oh and when she's off for a week from school we get her then too.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

I can see how that would be hard as far as transitions go... the stays are pretty short and change often.

My kids go with their dad every other weekend and then Tues & Thurs evenings from school til 7 pm.

My SS's are with us from Thursday evening through Monday morning, of each week. This schedule seems to work really well with them because it's consistant and for several days.

I also have a friend who's kids are with him for one week, and then the next week they're with their mom. They switch on Thursday nights, year round.
