How To Co-Parent This Holiday Season During The Pandemic
As we’re transitioning into the fall season, how are you doing with navigating school schedules – online learning, hybrid programs and in-person learning? It can be so overwhelming and co-parenting can be challenging because things can change in a minute!
And now is the time that you and your co-parent need to begin talking about school breaks and the holidays.
Visitation with extended family members could be a concern. Consideration may need to be made about location, number of people in attendance, and amount of space at holiday events may require additional communication with your co-parent.
2. Time With Loved Ones
If children are not able to spend time with loved ones during the holidays, planning another specific time in the future with this person may help to preserve the relationship for your child.
The ability for children to do some schooling online may actually give co-parents a new opportunity to create a schedule that gives more flexibility during school breaks and holidays.
Regardless of the challenges you and your co-parent are facing this year, try to keep in mind that this is not always the way things will be during the holidays.
There is no magical way to deal with the challenges we’re facing during this pandemic. Always keep in mind what is in the best interest of your children. The holidays can be stressful even when everything is “normal.” It may not be exactly what you’re hoping for, but consider this as an opportunity to create some new traditions for you and your family. Create a plan and always have a backup plan as well.
If you and your co-parent are struggling with figuring all this out on your own and you’re getting nowhere, feel free to call us and schedule your complimentary call where we can talk about how co-parenting coaching could help you.
