10 Hints for Co-Parenting the First Month of School
1. Discuss with your co-parent your work and at home schedules, so you know who will be there to greet your child when he or she returns home after school.
2. Set up a non-rushed atmosphere when your child returns so they can settle down after their school day.
3. Provide a snack and some small talk when they arrive and you will hear about their day including things that went well as well as those that didn’t.
4. If only one parent is in the home, set a time to call the other parent to just say hello. It’s important to the child that they know both parents are thinking of them.
