My ex allows our children to watch TikTok. Is this grounds for seeking full custody?

My ex allows our children to watch TikTok. Is this grounds for seeking full custody?

I forbade my child from watching TikTok because I worry it lowers IQ.

However, my ex-spouse allows them to use it at their house. Is this child endangerment grounds for a lawsuit for full custody?

In my professional opinion (and remember, I’m not your attorney, I’m just sharing my opinion, so if you want to know what the law in your jurisdiction is and how it applies, consult a local attorney), no. Now if you could prove the child is watching pornographic TikTok videos or heinously violent TikTok videos while in the other parent’s care and custody or other videos that are so clearly inappropriate and harmful to child as to shock the conscience and cause a reasonable person to conclude that the child is clearly being seriously harmed as a result, then you may have grounds for asking a court to intervene and to take steps to protect the child, but that probably does not constitute sufficient not grounds for seeking sole legal and/or physical custody of the child.

How can I get full custody, when I don’t trust the other parent with the baby?

How can my friend leave the father of her baby and get full custody, when she doesn’t trust him to look after the baby by himself?

The mother (or any parent in such a situation) would need to prove, by a preponderance of evidence, to the court that the father (or other parent) is sufficiently unfit to be entrusted with the child. Simply telling the court “I don’t trust the other parent” is not enough, not even close to enough to persuade the court. The mother would need to provide the court independently verifiable facts that show the father is either unable or unwilling to provide adequate care and attention and supervision of the child.

A court cannot award a parent sole legal and/or sole physical custody of a child without first finding there is sufficient evidence to justify such an award (or at least cannot do its job properly without first finding there is sufficient evidence to justify such an award).
