Unfortunately, this is a common problem. The bottom line in Washington is that the parents have to stick to the parenting plan and the child DOES NOT have the right to choose after the plan is entered. You can try counseling for your child. On the other hand, you have to make sure the kids follow the Plan or you will be found in contempt unless you modify the plan.Ask a similar question
