Use the General clauses used by judges I can post if you like.
4. That the parents are to consult with each other about decisions to be made in the exercise of their equal shared parental responsibility and shall make a genuine effort to come to a joint decision. They are not, however, required to consult with each other about the daily care of the children. The types of decisions about which parents are required to inform and consult include but are not limited to:
4.1 changing the name of a child;
4.2 relocating the residence of a child so that existing parenting arrangements become impractical;
4.3 changing the school of a child; and
4.4 any significant medical intervention for a child.
a) the MOTHER shall be responsible for the daily care, welfare and development of the children when the children are living with or spending time with her; and
b) the FATHER shall be responsible for the daily care, welfare and development of the children when the children are living with or spending time with him.
I hate how people try to lie and make life difficult
How dare the mother of these kids want it set in stone that her kids are nurtured in a safe environment. F**k off with your meddling 😣
Stay out of it.
Just agree. None of it is much enforceable anyway. Once she gets a new partner it will all be moot
I'd probably storm out of mediation too if my rapist was there.
I don't see a problem with "provide a safe and nurturing environment". I would be happy for it. Everything is open to interpretation and if she tries manipulating anything then common sense will prevail. Maybe you're being a touch paranoid.
And common sense throughout this entire process has not prevailed sadly. I had read all correspondence and throughout all of it she frequently writes 1-3 pages of how pissed off and victimised she is and then gets to the parenting plan. She has added and then taken back so many points. To say the negotiation has been chaotic and vindictive would be an understatement.
Sorry, but the issue here seems to be u... the whole story sounds like ur the problem with all ur whinging. Negotiations have stalled as u & ur partner aren’t agreeable to a simple clause that’s for the benefit of the children.
Either ask for a elaboration or just agree to it.
"Provide a safe a nurturing environment" should come as standard
If she can use it for an open interpretation then so can you
It concerns me a bit that you don't want to be glued into a contract that ensures you keep your children safe and nurtured...
I also agree with the comment above, stay out of it.
Have asked for elaboration and she wont say it encompasses anything specific or give even a written definition of what that point will encompass.
