I see my own children every minute of every day.
So I'm answering for my husband here:
My husband's 12 year old son comes to our house every weekend except for one per month, currently the time is 7:30 pm Friday night to 4:30 pm Sunday afternoon. He is also here for a week over winter break and July 1st through July 21st every summer.
This year, his mom setup winter break differently, just suggested something my husband agreed to. I believe their son was here last on Nov 29th, but it may have been the 6th. Well, his mom home schools him so there is no need to follow a public school schedule. She is saying there is 20 days winter break, but it's only ever been 14 days before. Going off the 20 day break, she suggested my husband have their son from 5:30 pm Dec 25th through some time (I'm sure she was specific in her email to him, I just didn't catch the time when my husband informed me) Jan 2nd. I gather they each get their son on their own birthday, and my husband's birthday is the 1st, so he normally has their son the second half of winter break so that one day gets attached.
My husband once calculated the amount of time he has and (If I remember accurately) he usually has their son 90 nights, ~100-110 days out of the year, give or take. So that means he has time with their son about 1/3 of the year.
ETA: We live in different cities, about 1.5 hour drive apart, one way.
