Anonymous, I appreciate that each of our experiences would likely colour our advice. However remaining child focused is surely the only sensible approach, dividing the parents into primary caregiver and non-resident parent is utterly divisive and doesn’t reflect that both parents are equally important to the child. Particularly as you go on to state that this “primary caregiver” MUST see the child every christmas day, whatever the practical considerations. Pretty aggressive stance that.

Don’t think anyone should be dictating anything, what I’ve advised is both parents should work out an agreement that is practical, child-centric and as futureproof as possible. I hope the original poster will not be encouraged into battle.
