This is an extremely stressful and trying time for all families. The added stress of exchanging your child between two households can add to that anxiety and almost become overwhelming. Have you noticed that prior to this pandemic some things that seemed like they were a big deal are not so much anymore? The most important thing as a parent is to keep your child safe and secure. So if you are exchanging your child, keep open the lines of communication with the other parent. There are no hard and fast rules on this but you have court orders you need to follow. If you think the other parent is not keeping your child safe, you can try and work with that other parent to change his/her behavior. But as during non pandemic times, you can always get legal help or go to the court for help. Most importantly, if both parents have the same goal, you can work it out. There is an old saying about sports that might apply here, “Sports do not make character, they reveal it.” This pandemic may not make character but it surely has revealed a lot about peoples’ character.
