I don't care what gender I am, my ex-DP is or my child is - it doesn't change the situation. I am very offended that you think the only reason this situation would upset people is because I am the mother. That's very rude to say. I would think the same of a mother who couldn't be bothered with her child on Mothers Day also. Ex-DP and I have 50/50 shared care of the toddler (7 nights in a fortnight each) so we are on exactly equal terms. I fought for that arrangement as did he. I am not a better parent for being a female. I'm not even saying I'm a better parent but I'm saying it's a sh!tty move to deny the chance to spend quality time with your child on Fathers day that you only have 50% of the time. I'd be making every chance to spend as much time with the toddler as possible.
