Yeah, the kids are out of school and the summer is here. The kids are really excited and the parents are not quite as excited. If you share your children with their other parent, you might be even less excited. How do you share the kids over the summer? Most likely, you already have a parenting plan. If you do not have one, you should talk and try and come up with a clear schedule to the children know what to expect and have something to look forward to. They will want to spend time with each parent and enjoy their time with each parent. What can you do as the parent to help the other parent? Let them know what you will be doing and where you will be going and how you are going to get there. You want to keep your kids safe and make sure they wear sun block and drink enough water. Take them to safe places so you don’t freak out the other parent. Wear life jackets. Watch them at the pool. Be safe and have fun. This is their childhood summer and they don’t have that many of them.
