I feel like I should request that the receiving parent does the driving, that way I'll have no one to blame but myself if they're late coming home from a visit.
Right now, we have the receiving parent picks up, with the thought that the parents will be more motivated to be on time when they are getting the kids...not working out so well!
He's been late picking the kids up (not super late, like 15 minutes or so) and doesn't have them ready when I get there to pick them up.
Frankly, I doubt he would be on time if we switched either though-I'm not sure I want to be in the position of waiting around for him to drop off the kids.
My ex and I always meet halfway in between our houses at a specific location. I give him a ten minute grace period if he is late picking up/dropping off our daughter and he does for me also . If that ten minutes is exceeded, we call one another to see what the problem is. Any later than that, late parent has to pick up/drop off child at other parent's house. I know it seems a little harsh but it makes it easier to see the other parents point of view when YOU are the one late lol.
That depends. When my ex and I first split and when overnights started, he did the pick up at the daycare and I picked up on Sunday. That was actually easier on my youngest. Now, it's flipped to where I drop them off on Friday and he brings them home on Sunday when it is his week-end.
