Summary Among the research, practice and socio-legal commentary on the substantial sharing of parentingtime after separation, children’s voices about their experiences remain overwhelmingly silent. Thisarticle draws on findings of a descriptive phenomenological study which investigated Australianschool-aged (8- to 12-year-old) children’s descriptions of two binary phenomena: securityand contentment in shared time arrangements, and the absence of security and contentmentin shared time parenting. Specifically, this article focuses on exploring parental behaviours andinteractions recognised by children as sources of security in shared time lifestyles, throughhappy and needy times. Central to this is the juxtaposition of the child’s experience of securityand shared enjoyment with the present parent, against the absence of security emanating fromunresolved longing for the ‘absent’ parent. The article provides an empirically derived formulationof children’s advice to parents about shared time parenting, with relevance for family law relatedparent education forums.
