    Dh spends most of his free time with our two boys.
    Most of that time is a positive experience for Dh and the boys. When it's not, I seem to inherit an extra child.
    I'm a stay at home parent and they are pretty much attached to me 24/7.

    Sad to hear of so many broken families out there. Sometimes these things are unavoidable and staying together for the sake of the children is not the right solution. Just remember that families come in all sorts of configerations...just mum, mum and dad, 2 mums, 2 dads, grandparents etc etc...it's the love that counts. For the record...Happy here in my household...My DD shares her life full time with her Mum, Dad and Grandparents.

    I like to think so. DD obviously has two homes with two sets if loving parents, she does have occasional hassles with her dad, mainly him not realising how much she misses him between visits and then leaving her with sitters while he works, but ex and I usually talk about it and they sort it out.

    I think DD is pretty lucky in this regard, her dad lives within walking distance and she is able to call him when ever she likes so she knows we are both always available to her.

    No - she hates going to her dads (about 2 hours a month). She had a great relationship with him until his new gf came on the scene.

    Yes. The older ones go to visit their father most weekends, and the younger ones father comes to see them several times a week.

    However, back when I was with my XH and we both lived together, he had very little to do with the children. During the daytime he would try and sleep, so I had to keep the children from disturbing them. He never attended any of their special events and only occasionally came along on family outings (under protest). The only thing he seemed to do with them was come along on visits to his parents, and whilst there just sit and drink coffee while the children played with their grandparents, or their grandparents toys.

    Two parents, one home.

    Definitely positive. They cry when he leaves for work, squeal and climb all over him when he gets home.

    He's a very hands on Dad and only works 7 shifts a fortnight.

    Um yeah of course...I'm kind of confused as to why your asking this question lol why wouldn't they kind of thing..

    Anyway we all live together hubby does do 2:2 FIFO roster, they chat via FaceTime everyday he is away and he spends 99% of his R&R with them, he does take them each out individually a few times each R&R I think it's more positive than when he was working in the city when he was only getting 2 low quality hours a day with them and then we spent the weekend running around doing stuff (shopping and all that jazz) this way he gets half the year at home with them, I think it's better quality because we can actually afford to go and do activities with them where as when he was in the city we couldn't.
