When you have shared custody of your children with your co-parent, things can get overwhelming trying to make sure both of you get to enjoy summertime activities with your kids.
Here are some tips that can help you keep the line of communication open with your ex-partner:
- Get everyone on the same page early on by getting everyone’s input and expectations – especially your children
- Realize that transition times often cause anxiety for kids no matter how old or young they are
- Remember to have patience and pick your battles
- Avoid last minute changes if at all possible
- Follow the plans that you, your co-parent and your children have put together
- Schedule some “me time” activities for yourself while your kids are with your co-parent
