The judge in Britney Spears' custody case has ruled that Britney will get two overnight visits per week. He did not reinstate the 50/50 agreement she once had with Kevin Federline.
Brit will get Sean Preston and Jayden James from 12 noon to 7:00 p.m., plus one overnight visit per week. All visits will be monitored. In addition, she must also show evidence that she has child-proofed her pool by Friday.
In his order, the judge wrote that Britney has "little communication" with the kids, and that the environment in the house ranges from "chaotic" to "somber."
However, it's the parenting coach that gives the most insight into Britney's chaotic life.
Britney failed to meet with her coach Lisa Hacker three times. Hacker says that though Britney clearly loves her children and the kids are bonded to her, Brit’s interactions with the kids “are not child centered.” “It seems that her choices are dependent more upon what she wants to do at any given time rather than what would be more enjoyable for the children,” Hacker writes.
Hacker observed that the kids “have no real schedule or routine.” Hacker reported that “during all three of my visits Ms. Spears rarely engaged with the children in either conversation or play.”
Hacker also is concerned that neither of Britney’s homes were child-proofed. Britney seemed to show “a lack of general attention at times” and seemed to have “little or no interest” in utilizing Hacker’s guidance.
Through it all, Hacker makes it clear that there was nothing she “would characterize as abusive in a traditional sense.” After Hacker handed her report to the judge, however, Britney became much more engaged with the kids and with Hacker.
“The problem,” writes Hacker, “is that unless Ms. Spears realizes the consequences of her behavior and the impact that it has on her children, nothing is going to be successful.”
