Parents who are divorced often find it difficult to make decisions about the children. After all, you didn't get divorced because you always agreed on matters. When there are disputes about parenting matters, you have to take the time to think carefully about what is best for the kids. We are here to help you evaluate the options and make a plan for moving forward.
One factor that must always be present in these cases, no matter how serious the disagreement is that both adults should treat the matter with great respect. This isn't a time for name-calling or being rude. Instead, respect should be provided mutually. Not only can this help you resolve the matter, but it also sets a good example for the children.
Some parents forget that children pay close attention to what they do. If you are having a disagreement with your ex, try to do it away from the children so that they don't get stressed out and upset about what's going on. If you have to do this around them, remember to speak to your ex in a business-like tone so that you are being a good role model.
Another thing to remember in these cases is that you need to have discussions directly with your ex. You shouldn't ever try to relay messages through the children or others. If you can't communicate with your ex, it might be best to turn to the court to handle the disagreement and issue a ruling on how the matter will be resolved. We can work on your behalf throughout negotiations or court involvement.
