Halloween may not be as significant a holiday as others, but it is fun and enjoyable for children. They have the opportunity to dress up as something that brings them joy, spend time with their family and friends, and enjoy delicious candy.
However, this is another holiday that divorced parents have to keep in mind. While you may feel overwhelmed by this spooky season, it is possible to have a successful day of trick-or-treating with your family and kids and Eiges & Orgel, PLLC has the tips to help.
1. Trick-or-Treating As a Family
One option for divorced parents on Halloween is to put aside any differences and come together as a family. This will communicate to your children that you care about them and prioritize their experience and happiness above all else. Have discussions with your children about the night and get their input on what activities they may want to participate in. This is the perfect time to put your co-parenting skills to the test and put your children first.
2. Dividing Up The Night
It is not possible for every divorced couple to spend extended amounts of time together. In these situations, it may be best for the family to divide their time if possible. Of course, you have to take into account if you and your ex live in close proximity and other factors. Dividing up the night will allow each parent to spend time with their children.
3. Attending Other Events
If parents cannot divide the holiday or attend events together, they may have to choose to attend different events. For example, maybe there is a community festival happening on a different night of the week, or a school event. These can be delegated between parents so they can have quality time with their children.
