Parenting can be tough, even at the best of times. After separation or divorce, it can be even more challenging. It’s important to remember that while you might be thinking about parenting arrangements and money issues, your children’s basic needs don’t change. They still need to feel safe, secure, and loved.
Unless there is a risk to the children, kids do best when both parents and important family members, such as grandparents, are involved in their lives.
When parents live apart, their most important job is deciding how to care for, and make important decisions about their children. Because you know your children best, you play an important role in making a parenting plan that will work best for your children and your family.
