Child custody and school grades problems

Friday, August 2, 2019 by The Press in Focus

Q. I have had shared custody of my 9- and 11-year-old children with their father for the last five years. This past year, the youngest. a girl, sometimes refuses to see her father. Our 11-year-old son’s grades have dropped from As and Bs to Cs and Ds. As parents, we share similar values and expectations for our children.

The first suggestion came from panelist Mike Daniels, who said what often happens in shared custody situations is that the custody times mostly exclude individual time.
