changing custody schedule

Just curious how bio parents with 50/50 custody would feel about being approached by other parent about drastically changing custody arrangement if their child had ongoing (school mostly) problems. If encouragement, discipline, and all other things have been tried and it was felt it maybe more consistency would help, would you agree to taking primary custody? Would you allow your ex to? Would it matter if school, therapist, or ex was making the suggestion? What if their were sibling, would you change it for all or just the one?

I did give DD's father primary custody because I felt (and my therapist agreed) that that was in her best interests at the time. That was four years ago and she is still with him 75% of the time. I still feel I made the right decision, and since she is established at her dad's, goes to a good school there, and has her friends there, I am not planning to change anything.

Sorry, I mean five years ago.
