"Parenting time" is commonly known as the time the child is in each parent's primary care if they have custody or guardianship, and called "access" if the parent does not.
How each parent will contribute to each child's care, and when each child will be their primary responsibility, is a challenging, and often emotionally charged decision. Parents should be flexible, and make regular reviews of such plans, as children's needs, and each family's circumstances, will undoubtedly change as the child grows. A rigid long term plan may not be appropriate as time passes.
As children become teenagers, their input into such decisions is given greater consideration, providing they demonstrate the maturity required to become co-planners of their schedules.
