Parenting time in Illinois. Fathers that demand to be with their children as a right of a parent.
March 11, 2014 § Leave a comment
Most people don’t know that the standard “visitation” schedule for non-custodial parents in the state of Illinois is four hours a week and every other weekend. No matter how good and participatory a parent has been, this is the standard time allotted to almost all non-custodial parents.
This makes bonding over the course of a child’s first 18 years of development next to impossible. As a nurse with considerable adult and adolescent psychiatric nursing experience, I see firsthand the social, emotional and psychological havoc wreaked on children and adults who did not receive sufficient parenting time due to court orders. If even bonding is not proactively pursued by family courts, the resulting dynamic may very well negatively impact future relationships as an adult.
