Is it unreasonable?
Given the situation. 6 children across 3 family main homes one year old ours baby and oldest teenagers... we have set time as per order with skids alternative weekends and a night in week. We both work full time also and only 3 bed home so all overcrowded but we make it work (he gave her the family home).
occasionally he asks for additional contact with one of the 3 kids eg. The teenager to take her shopping or the 4 year old to take him to the zoo. Activities that each of the other children won't particularly like and also on our own time so we can try more time together. Bio mum won't allow unless he takes all 3 children. We have no issue leaving our baby behind with a grandparent etc if something isn't suited to him and try to make sure all the kiddos have more attention this way. Always give notice of at least 2 weeks and always ask politely. Still getting a no. Is it unreasonable in the circumstance?
teen was invited last week and wanted to come the cinema to see a 12 and bio mum said no. She then left her at home with her latest boyfriend and took herself out so it's not as they're otherwise engaged... we never react and always just say ok let me know if you change your mind but I'm honestly stumped?
I know everyone's different but if my ex husband requested additional time to include my littleun into something her step sibling same age is going I would be thrilled to oblige for her.
