Continuity in Parenting Between Households

Continuity of Parenting Between Households

Here are some of the issues that need to be resolved so that the children have continuity by the two parents in the two households. Conflict between the parents is harmful to the children. Remember they are your children and they have, and love, two parents.

Bedtime, school nights. This column is for the agreed resolution.
Bedtime, non-school nights.
Wake-up Time School Mornings.
Limitations on TV and Video Viewing.
Personal Hygiene (tooth-brushing, bathing, shampoos).
Homework time.
School preparation.
Scheduling extracurricular activities.
Driving.
Curfew.
Limitations on books and music.

It is wise to agree that in each household the child shall have his/her own bed, pillow, toothbrush, soaps, stuffed animals, study space, special foods, and any thing else necessary for them to maintain continuity without bringing supplies back and forth.
