Children Activities with your Ex
When dealing with your children’s schedules and your separation, it’s always best to try to minimize the disruption. Children Activities with your Ex is something you need to think about. If the children continue with their daily routines there will likely be less stress on them. The transition to a full separation of the parents will also be easier to manage for them. This includes the children’s activities and at the first instances of a separation.
Both parents should ensure that these activities continue as planned. They need to work together to ensure the children attend them without incident. You should make sure your voice is heard in the scheduling and deciding of activities. If not this could find yourself in another battle with your ex.
While the primary parent that cares for the children typically will try to control and manage the children’s activity schedules, you should make sure to be a part of these discussions and decisions as much as possible.
