Coping as Co-parents: The Summer Schedule

You’ve solved the parenting schedule for the school year, but summer is around the corner and then what? Planning summer activities for kids can be a challenge even for intact families–particularly if both parents work during the day. Add co-parenting conflict into the mix and the challenges only multiply:

  • Will one parent be allowed to take the kids on vacation if the other’s work schedule prevents them from reciprocating?
  • What if one parent insists on taking the kids to visit family out of the country against the wishes of the other?
  • Who gets to choose a day camp program?
  • If only one parent supports overnight camp, does the other parent have the right to insist it not come out of their parenting time?
  • How do you split the costs?
Disagreement around these issues can be tricky to navigate without putting your kids in the middle of your conflict. Join us for a talk with matrimonial and family law attorney Shari Bornstein. She’ll share strategies for navigating this discussion with clarity and poise, so your kids can focus on having fun this summer.
