Get ready for the holidays now with your parenting plan

The holiday season is coming up fast, which means that parents are going to have to make plans for those special days. For those who are divorced, there are some special considerations that they need to think about before things get too busy.

The key to any decisions related to child custody is that you have to do what’s in the child’s best interests. For the holiday season, this usually means making sure they get to see beloved family members, especially those who visit from out of town. This could mean that you and your ex have to compromise to ensure this happens.

Some parents opt to take things one year at a time, while others set the schedule many years in advance. Thinking about the holiday activities on each side of the family might help. For example, if your family always celebrates on Dec. 24 and your ex’s family celebrates on Dec. 25, it might be best to have those set for each year.

Once you have the schedule all figured out, you can work on determining the best options for creating memories when you have your children with you. This might mean that you figure out some new traditions to help them enjoy the holiday season. Hayrides with hot chocolate or doing holiday crafts might be some options to consider.

Many parents can work together to come up with arrangements that work. If you and your ex aren’t able to do that, it might be time to turn to the court for decisions. This could help you to get the parenting plan set up in a way that’s in the children’s best interests.
