Regardless of the time of year, co-parenting has a way of bringing unique challenges to your life. When the holiday season rolls around, don’t be surprised if you’re searching for answers to a variety of questions.

Fortunately, following a few key co-parenting tips will help you avoid any real issues during this time of the year. Here are five things to keep in mind:

  • Your children should always come first: No matter what, make sure your children enjoy the holiday season. This often means putting your bad relationship in the background for the meantime.
  • Know your schedule: There’s a good chance your parenting agreement includes a holiday schedule. Become familiar with it as soon as possible.
  • Plan in advance: You need to be on the same page as the other parent as you plan for the upcoming holidays. From personal schedules to time away from school, everything should be discussed.
  • Coordinate gifts: The last thing you need is an argument about gifts. Discuss this upfront as to avoid trouble down the road.
  • Keep yourself feeling good: It’s your holiday season too, so don’t let an argument with your ex-spouse ruin your good time.

By following these holiday co-parenting tips, you’ll feel better about your ability to show your children a good time.

If your ex-spouse continues to make things miserable on you, perhaps by ignoring the parenting plan that you have in place, learn more about your legal rights. It’s not something you want to do, but you may have to take action to ensure that you prevent similar issues from coming to light in the future.
