I don't think Greatmum mentioned anything about cutting the parent out of the child's life. It would make sense that perhaps she meant she would recommend a different schedule. I do see where she is coming from. My kids come/go each Friday. I wouldn't want to do that two-three times per week either. Might be ok to get a parent used to having his child more often though!

I think if thi schedule you mentioned was permanant, that would qualify as 'stable'.

Do you honestly think that children fare better when a parent is effectively cut out of their life?

I can see the point you both make. There is a high frequency of transition using that method. But what works for you may not work for others. Breaking up the week like that is perfectly acceptable, and in some ways better for the child. At least in my humble opinion.

It is really not a workable solution, however, for high conflict parents.
