Keeping Child From Father

Is It Fair For a Mother to Keep a Child From His Father?

A deadbeat dad rolls into town on last night's Parenthood! When Amber and Drew's pop shows up to play some gigs, Sarah has a bit of a breakdown when she finds out her son has been hanging out with his father. While the mom of two has good reason — namely because her ex is an addict — is it ever fair to keep a kid (who wants a relationship) away from his or her parent?

It totally depends on the situation. In serious cases it is essential.

I voted yes, I mean if there's a risk to the child's safety then the mother HAS to say no, but that happens so rarely. My ex went through a brief ultra-psycho period and I let him still see her, but only at his parents' house when they were home. Unfortunately not every mother has that luxury.
