I have 3 teenage children, the oldest being 17, who do not want to spend every other weekend with their father. He spends little time interacting with them, is critical and demeaning to them, and often refuses to let them go to parties or school functions that occur during "His time". This has triggered psychological problems and two of the three are being seen professionally to help them deal with this situation. At what age can they legally refuse to go to stay with him for the whole weekend? There is no physical or sexual abuse, just fear of verbal abuse and bullying.
