What to do with Kids During the Holidays

by | Nov 6, 2015 | Firm News, Florida Family Law

Parents never get it easy. Either they are stuck with the kids, or they are stuck at work paying to support the kids. Then come the holidays, and that call arrives, “I am here to drop off the kids for the Holidays.” If you had properly planned ahead, this is not surprising, but more often than not, parents are blindsided when scheduling holiday child custody. Parental Planning is an important aspect to marriages and newly divorced couples. Without proper planning, parents can be easily caught off guard when they realize they have to take care of their children for an entire Holiday season. And Holiday seasons are not as short as some believe, many of them last multiple weeks.

Why should I care about who gets the Kids during the Holidays?

  • When a relationship falls apart, kids can become troublesome for single parents to schedule. Scheduling and planning for children is more difficult when you have to juggle getting your life back on track after a divorce. Things can get overlooked, and usually child sharing is a forgotten scheduling conflict. This conflict rears its ugly head during the Holidays and needs to be addressed through appropriate Parental Planning. Custody battles are won and lost over scheduling, don’t risk losing child custody because scheduling becomes difficult. Hire a Parent Planner to help.

When is the best time to consider a schedule for taking care of the kids?

  • In a marriage, the best time to start scheduling child care is before you have kids. In a divorce, the best time to start scheduling child care is when the divorce proceedings occur.
