I think people who are not parents find it hard to understand how aware children are of family dynamics and changes to it. If this child was used to a specific amount of family time its absence would be missed and the father has the right to bring it up to the mother. I have, to my shame, also got lost in NRE and did not spend as much time being mentally present with my child as I had previously, we were not seemingly doing anything different but because I was distracted she noticed the difference and resented it, children can't rationalise things the way adults can. I only wished I had a spouse there to hit me upside the head and tell me to pack it in!! It is not control, it is common sense.
