Calling Spears Parenting Not Abusive in a Traditional Sense Court Grants Her Just Three Visits a Week

By steph

Britney Spears has not regained shared custody of her sons.

In a ruling stemming from the October 26 custody hearing between Spears, 25, and ex Kevin Federline, 29, L.A. Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon granted the pop star just two daytime visits a week, plus an overnight visit.

Additionally, Gordon denied Spears’ attorney’s request to stop the singer’s twice-weekly drug tests, ordering that the singer will have to continue the random tests in order to maintain her visitation rights. has learned that in last Friday’s custody hearing the court-appointed parenting coach, Lisa Hacker, reported that when they are with their mother, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, have no real schedule or routine. Hacker explains, “The environment in the house ranges from chaotic to almost somber with little communication at all.”

She added, “During all three of my visits, [Spears] rarely engaged with the children in conversation or play.” Hacker also noted, however, that Spears’s parenting lapses are nothing she “would characterize as abusive in a traditional sense.”

The court order said that Hacker on three different days (Sept 28, Oct. 4 and Oct. 18) “made attempts to meet with [Spears] in order to comply with the Court’s orders. [Spears] failed to meet with Ms. Hacker on those occasions.”

In light of Hacker’s report, the court also has ordered that Spears must:

· Get her homes childproofed by November 2.

· Meet with coach Hacker for two hours every week.

· Ensure that Sean and Jayden are properly secured in a child safety seat whenever she drives with them.

These orders, in addition to those set forth on September 17 (including counseling sessions with K-Fed), remain in effect until further court notice.
