5 Tips for Part-Time Parenting

  • Be Consistent with Your Time: You and your children need to have your time together. Value your children by respecting their time with you.
  • Be a Role Model for Behavior: Act cordially and respectfully with your ex and others. Your behavior will be an example to your children and to other adults. 
  • Share Parenting: Communicate about your parenting strategies. Update your ex on major issues with the children, even if your parenting styles are completely different. 
  • Define Your New Normal: Explain the new living situation to your children. Give them assurance and love as you move into a new sense of normal.
  • Sing Their Praises: Shower your children with love. Sing their praises and encourage them to act and think positively. Show that they can be an instrument of change in their own lives.
