Sharing Parenting Time
Sharing parenting time is one of the biggest adjustments for families after a divorce or separation. Keeping communication about your scheduling clear and easily accessible can help parents and children acclimate to living in separate households.
Sharing parenting time is often difficult to do smoothly, and the difficulty is compounded when multiple families have children from multiple past marriages. Planning visitations for children between four or even more different sets of parents can be an organisational nightmare, and it is easy to become overwhelmed when trying to contact the right people at the right time. Things like public calendars can help, but are often not enough when multiple parties are involved. One of the best ways to make parenting time between multiple families run more smoothly is to use the OurFamilyWizard® website's parenting time service.
The OurFamilyWizard® website provides a simple, easy to use parenting time calendar that all but completely solves the problem of sharing parenting time. Whether you are going through a divorce and are going to be sharing parenting time with your ex, or you and your current spouse both have children from past marriages, the parenting time calendar and scheduling services provided by the OurFamilyWizard® can make planning a snap. This is done through a central electronic calendar that any parents involved can access. The calendar plans parenting time up to three years in advance, making it easy to plan long term changes or future events.
Since all parents involved can see the OurFamilyWizard® parenting time calendar, it's easy for everyone to stay informed. Everyone has the same information, and has the same ability to suggest changes to the schedule. These suggested changes must be approved by the other parties before they take effect. This allows you to trade parenting time, or give and receive parenting time in the event you want to take a vacation with the children, go on a business trip, or so on. Using the OurFamilyWizard® makes organisation easy, even when dealing with multiple families who share children.
