Have you included Mother’s Day in your parenting plan agreement?

29 March 2019 |

Ensure important dates are in your parenting plan agreement

When you are negotiating the living arrangements for your children don’t forget to discuss how important dates such as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are going to be dealt with. Separated parents often agree that regardless of who is to have the children that weekend the children will spend Mother’s Day with their mother and Father’s Day with their Father.

It’s a lot easier if you plan it in advance

We also suggest you consider what the arrangements will be for celebrations such as Easter, Christmas, Birthdays (yours and your children’s) and any specific dates which might be important to your family. Agreeing the arrangements in advance is a better option in the long run as you do not want to run the risk of confrontation on the day or the lead up to the day. If you plan what is happening ahead of time this provides clarity for both parents and children and also minimises stress.

We help parents that are separating create a Parenting Plan Agreement

As a separated parent you may find drawing up a “Parenting Plan Agreement” to be beneficial. A parenting plan is an agreement which sets out the arrangements for the children such as living arrangements, special occasions and education.

If you require any advice concerning children disputes, or creating a parenting plan agreement, please do not hesitate to contact Jen Pollock and Jennifer Hargreaves.
