What to do if my parenting plan states that my ex-husband sees the kids every other weekend but he now wants to change the days due to his girlfriend not wanting to watch them?

He said if I don’t do it he will take me to court. I don’t think this would be good since they go to school and they are already going through a hard time from all the changes in the past several months. Should I let him take me to court or should I let him have them Saturday-Monday instead of Friday-Sunday?

I suggest that before you make a decision baised upon what your "ex" wants that you consult with a family law attorney for guidance over the situation. Child custody is based upon each parent having time with the minor child or children not based upon issues of the girlfriend of one parent not wanting to watch the minor.
