Address Parenting Plan Issues before They Become a Major Problem

Provided you’re on the same page with your spouse, hashing out a parenting plan shouldn’t be all that difficult. However, in the event of a divorce, disagreements may arise and seemingly minor issues can become major ones when figuring out custody.

Let’s briefly explore some of these issues you may wish to address in your parenting plan, starting with extracurricular activities. Depending on how many of these activities the child is participating in, they could affect the time spent with the other parent which may cause problems. Make sure the child’s schedule is clearly defined and agreed upon.

As the child ages, they will begin to figure out who they are and their place in the world. This could mean experimenting in radical ways with their appearance such as by dying their hair a bold color. Both parents should agree on these changes so that the child does not feel like they cannot freely express themselves.

Depending on the child’s age, they may eventually want a smartphone. The appropriate age for the child to have one could differ among both parents or they may be differences in what is allowable screen time. Again, this is something that should be discussed.
