Tips for co-parenting during Halloween

Halloween is a chance for families to make beautiful memories with their children. It may only be one day of the year, but separated parents can often become involved in disputes regarding who has the right to spend time with their children over the Halloween period. This is why it is always best to plan ahead and practice clear communication.

If you are worried about co-parenting during the Halloween period, the following are some tips and reminders to stand you in good stead.

Get clued up on your rights

Before Halloween approaches, you should review any parenting plan or custody agreement that you have in place. Learn whether any plans have been formalized regarding Halloween. If they have not, speak to your ex and try to reach a compromise in a civil way.

Avoid being bitter

If you are feeling upset that your ex is spending time with your children over Halloween, you should try to avoid any negative feelings toward them. You are in control of how you react to the situation, and being bitter will only make you feel worse.

Remember that your child's happiness is of the utmost importance

While it's important to enforce your custody rights, you mustn't involve your children in any argument or dispute. Your children's happiness and well-being are the most important things to maintain. An unpleasant conflict could ruin the holiday for everyone.

If you are interested in modifying your custody agreement or creating a parenting plan, this could help you put in place arrangements for holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. It could also help you to have a smoother relationship with your ex.
