Consider the following scenario: Your ex-partner confronts you and says that you never assisted with the child/ren before separation, and that you were never interested in being a part of any educational decisions that had to be made concerning the child/ren. He/she is now saying that you should continue to let them make all such decisions regarding the child/ren. Secretly, you know that this is, in fact, true – not because you don’t care about your child/ren’s life/lives, but because youwork very long hours, that prevents you from attending school functions, and parent-teacher meetings, you live so far apart that you are only able to see the child/ren on school holidays, and, your ex-partner has, in thepast, always made sensible decisions regarding the child/ren’s education. Now that you’re separated from the child/ren’s other parent, you have been insisting that you must jointly agree on all parenting issues, including education, because it is your ‘right’. After careful consideration, which of the following would, in fact, be a reasonable and child-focussed solution to this situation?
