After the Divorce: Spending Time With Each Parent

Many solutions are available for divorced parents allowing them to spend time with their children. Every family seems to come up with its own special plan. The key is planning. It's also extremely important to be flexible and reasonable. If the most important thing is that children and parents continue to have a close, caring, and loving relationship then the parents must put the child first. No matter what their situation, there is a fair way for parents to share time with their children. Children can have two homes - one with each parent. In some cases, children live with one parent during the school week and with the other on weekends. 

Sometimes, parents takes turns being with their children on the weekends. Some children of divorce also take turns spending time with their parents during week days or overnights. Of course, that depends on how close the divorcing parents live to each other. In some families, children spend part of their week with one parent and the other part of the week with the other parent. If parents live far apart, their children might live with one parent during the school year and spend long weekends, and most of the summer vacation with the other parent. Holidays, birthdays and school vacations are good occasions to share time with each parent of course, depending on how far apart they live. Parents who cooperate will often work out a plan so that their children can spend time with each parent for those special days.

It's extremely important for parents to arrange their time so the kids can continue to go to their kids' activities and sports without worrying about which parent will take them. School work can be a time where both parents help and work on school projects and be there for their children's special events. Today, of course, with all of the communications available, children can talk, Skype, Facetime, and of course, the old reliable, send letters or cards to their parents. Emails allow children to instantly communicate so there's really no reason why parents can not remain involved in their children's lives. It takes some planning and cooperation but I think we all agree that the children are worth it.
