Hello i am the serious girlfriend of a man who just got 50/50 custody of his three year old. I noticed that it has really taken a toll on her, for example one day of the week she thought she was going back to her home where she a lived for a while and cried when she found out she wasn't. her mom doesn't like to communicate with us at all and just comes back with snarky remarks when we ask her questions. any advice on how to make this easier on the little one.

For 50/50 custody to truly work both parents need to be able to communicate.



I have done 50/50 for 7 years now and it can get frustrating if the other parent doesn't tell you everything.



Maybe get a wall planner and mark your weeks in 1 colour and Mum's weeks in another colour. Mark off each day so she will know how many sleeps till she goes to the other house. On the plus side it will help her with her counting and colours.
