How to create an equal parenting plan

A solid plan can make a complicated parenting situation less stressful and easier for you and your children. Well thought out parenting plans can help you and your children by providing stability and a sense of togetherness.

For a parenting plan to work the best it can, you want it to be fair for both parents and your children. In order to make this happen there are a few specific considerations you should not forget.

Vacation time

Accounting for vacation time is an important part of a parenting plan. If you or your children’s other parent want to take the kids on vacation once or twice a year, you should be sure to include provisions for this in your parenting plan.

You can also include rules and regulations, such as if you want your children to be able to travel out of the country or for how long.

You should also make sure you have a plan for your children’s school vacation time. Children have many breaks during the year. Summer and winter break in particular are long periods of time where your children will need to have activities to do and places to stay.

Childrens mental health

Taking your children's wellbeing into account is also important in a parenting plan. Co-parenting can take a toll on your child’s mental health. Being considerate of your children’s preferences and emotions can help you create a parenting plan that works for the whole family.

Discipline and rules

A parenting plan should also include provisions about rules and policies for your family. Not only should you create a schedule, you should also outline how you want your family to operate. Including guidelines for discipline and other rules is important in a parenting plan. Bedtime, curfew and other rules can be outlined in a plan.

You and your children’s other parent should make choices about how you make decisions regarding your children’s health, education and religion, among other elements.

These are just a few elements you can include in order to create a comprehensive parenting plan. There are also outside experts you can consult in order to make the best plan possible. A solid parenting plan takes time, but will benefit your whole family, so it is worth the effort.
