Our expert says:
A skilled psych who actually interviews both parents might be able to make a well-informed opinion as to what's going on, working this out between what each parent is claiming. If there is EVIDENCE that the mother is not able to look after the child properly, the psych and the court would surely take that seriously. And a psych ought to recognize that sometimes a parent effectively bribes a child by gining them stuff and fun and avoiding the necessary discipline and structure.
