I completely empathise. When I was negotiating contact, I was working and she was not, but she refused to share driving, allow more than two overnights per month and 1 phone call per week.

Looking at it objectively, you would have to be a monster to deprive a parent of contact in this way, and I was angry for a long time. In time, through mediation (now enforced by court order), we have moved to one weekend per fortnight and 2 phone "slots" per week. Fair? no, but we''ve come a long way.

Earlier this month, I emailed a calendar with every weekend, half-term and other school holiday in 2013, each marked with suggested contact. There are bound to be changes and unforeseen events, but a broad agreement is a great thing for everyone
