Tis the Season: Managing Holidays and Parent Separation
Separation and divorce are often stressful for parents, and learning how to adjust to new routines and traditions can be especially challenging. Further, parents commonly struggle to figure out how to share their children’s time between households; the emotions tied to many family holidays can make difficult decisions even harder.

What is a “Good” Parenting Plan?
Working as a child specialist, divorce coach, and mediator both in and out of the Collaborative process for the last 15 years, I have seen a LOT of parenting plans. During this time, I have come to feel more strongly about the importance of the flexibility in parenting plans. It is vital that parents realize that the parenting plan will need to be adjusted as children get older and parent circumstances change.
