I think courts should take this step prior to the relationship being irreversibly damaged, as is seemingly the case in this instance.  I would imagine that once parental rights have been interfered with more than 3 or 4 times, courts should look seriously at jail time for this type of flagrant contempt, perhaps starting with one night per instance of interference.
