Prepare for vacations with children after a divorce

After divorce, taking vacations can become a bit more difficult since you will have to figure out the logistics of making it work so you can have the children with you. There are several things to think about when you are trying to make this work. Here are a few to consider.

One of the top priorities is looking at the child custody order to find out when you will have the children. You should also check to see what type of notification you need to give your ex. Even if you aren't required to do so by the custody order, you should consider letting your ex know what is going on so that they have an idea about the vacation.

Another thing to plan on is communication. How will the children communicate with the other parent while on vacation? Will they use video messaging or phone calls? What about texts and emails? Making these decisions now can help you solidify a plan that will make life much easier during the vacation.

Children usually want to share memories of the vacation when they return home. Help them find ways to do this. Taking pictures might be a good idea. You might also get them journaling supplies so they can write down their favorite memories to share with the other parent.

In all of these cases, you need to remember that making memories with your children is the priority. Even if you want to take pictures of everything, don't forget that you should be having fun. Sometimes, just being fully there is the best thing to do.
