Custody of Words
« on: Jun 14, 2005, 08:16:08 AM »
How is this for a suggestion? How about doing away with calling parents Custodial Parents, Non-Custoidal Parents, Primary Parents and Non-Residential Parents?
Centuries ago kids came up with other labels for their parents - Mom and Dad. It seemed to work fine for so long; what happened?
Oh, I'm sorry. It must have needed fixed!
Do you think judges could bring themselves to ask, What does the mother think? Rebuttal could be, and what do you think Dad?
Also, since when did spending time with your kid become visitation? I can tell you no one has ever asked me, "How did your visitation fo over the weekend?" And, if they did it in the grocery store line it would have been cause for embarassment.
Do you think it might be better to just call it what it is - sharing time with your kid? Unfortunately, now that our society has become so advanced it is most improbable that we will ever re-visit these basics. But, I'm sure that children will feel they are in good custody as society continues to bring new meanings to their lives.
