A similarity on child's views and what weight should be given

A child is young and they have no interest in the other parent. Should the child's wishes and views be followed and accepted?

If the same child wished they did not have to go to school; should the child's wishes be honored or would you encourage the child to attend and go to school?

The question I would have is why does the child feel this way in both circumstances.

A custodial parent has a moral duty to promote a relationship between the child and the other parent because 9 times out of 10 it is proven to be very beneficial to the child and in the child's best interest.

Worst case scenario

Having a mediocre parent is better than having no parent at all. This is common sense.
