Prepare for supervised visitation to ensure success

Supervised visits aren’t the ideal form of spending time with your children, but the court orders them to help ensure that the children can remain safe. Some parents will frown upon these visits. It is imperative that parents who are in this position remember that the time with the child can still be used to make memories even though they aren’t seeing each other in an ideal situation.

One thing that parents might not remember is that supervised visits are often the first step to having unsupervised visits. You should plan your actions carefully and think about what is going on at every step of the visit. There is a good chance that the person who is supervising the visits is writing out reports after the visit to let the appropriate people know what is going on.

As you are preparing for a supervised visit, try to think of things that you can do with your child. If you have younger children, find games or bring toys that will engage them. You shouldn’t just sit there and watch your child. Instead, do things with him or her so that you can make memories.

Not all of the visits will go as you expect it to. Try to keep your cool when you are at the visit. You can find a place to vent out your frustrations when you leave the visit, but try to remember that your focus should be on making your children comfortable and having positive memories despite the difficulties that come with visits that occur in front of strangers.
