Usually, young children spend every day and night with you as a biological parent; however, when biological parents are seperated, it can mean that the child splits his or her time between each parent. While this is done to ensure that the child has a strong bond with each parent, you might worry that the other parent is not responsible, and that you are not able to protect your child from harm at all times.
