The best way to deal with custody and summer break

If you are a divorced parent in New Jersey, you might think that once you have agreed upon a custody agreement that you will not have to address the subject again. While figuring out parenting time can be fairly easy when the children are young, things can change dramatically as they get older. Between their busy activity schedules and your desire to take them on fun vacations, summer break often results in the need to modify the original plan. 

According to NJ.com, cooperation between both parents is one of the most important things in order to keep stress and chaos at a minimum. Discussing summer plans well in advance, as in a minimum of 60 days before a proposed vacation, is imperative. This allows both parents to figure out details and communicate about misunderstandings.

Huffington Post talks about how important it is to go over details and share them with the other parent. This is especially true when it comes to a long vacation or trip overseas. Make sure the parent who is taking the kids is aware of all allergies, medication and insurance information so there are no surprises along the way.

Parents should talk with their children about upcoming plans so everyone is on the same page. A parent should also not worry if his or her plans with the kids are not as glamorous as the other parent's. Kids want to spend time with their mom and dad, and this is more important than the specific activity. No matter what the plans are, parents should be engaged and focused on the children's needs and on making memories.
