Giving Everyone a Good Season

The holiday season can be challenging to navigate for divorced parents. How do you split the time with your children when both of you have different plans? How do you ensure that your children have a good time during the holidays? In this blog, learn how to work the holiday season into your California parenting plan.

Tips for Handling Issues

California parents who have a parenting plan in place may be wondering how to work the holiday season into their schedule. Follow these tips on how to do just that.

Communicate in Advance

Talk to your co-parent about your plans well in advance. This will help you both avoid any last minute surprises or changes.

Give Your Child Stability

If you have young children, try to stick to their usual routine as much as possible. Having a set schedule will help them feel comfortable and secure during what can be a chaotic time of year.

Be Flexible

Be flexible when it comes to holiday traditions. You may not be able to celebrate exactly as you did in the past, but that doesn't mean you can't create new traditions with your children.

Make Communication a Priority

Make sure communication is a priority. This is especially critical if you and your co-parent don't always see eye to eye. Keeping the lines of communication open will help make the holiday season go more smoothly for everyone involved.

Following these tips can help make the holiday season a little easier for both you and your children.
