I am a little confused.
If he wants to take care of...
...how does this affect you at all?
If the child is being affected, then so is the parent.
Since Daddy dearest wants the child bounced back and forth week to week, in and out of child day care, the child will not make as many great strides in interactions with others as it they went every week.
.Parents who are putting.. their child first..
Which the O.P. is
doing. They want the child to have a schedule which isn't torn asunder!
blah blah blah blah blahddiddly blah
(yeah, that's what you are coming across like in your words max)
Let me explain it to you this way max:
I was shifted and around quite a bit growing up. It was not particularly pleasant. My interacting with others was 😠 made somewhat difficult. One week I'd be there and then disappear for several weeks(sometimes months) and then back in the same classroom.
Of course, I was not always up to speed as to what was happening.
Memorable moments (not good ones, just permanently pressed into my brain) included missing the start of an international pen-pal activity. I returned far after the start. A day or so after my return, the other students received their response letters from their new found pals. I had zippo and never got a pal!
There was the class play. Oh, it was figured, I'd most likely been in a performance with the other class. I was excluded.
One time I entered a class and later in the day, the students went to the cupboards and took out their papier -mache projects.
(Good luck was with me as 3 weeks later I was back in the other classroom. An interesting Christmas season it was that year...it all happened in the month of December)
So you see max, the child is affected by this sort of thing.
It's quite clear in the O.P. that the father would rather just not contribute his fair share of finance.
Izzy and Linkat have pointed out where you are off. Why won't you read and absorb?
