Managing Long Distance Parenting

LogoActing as a team with the other parent in an acrimonious divorce is something that may take work. In such circumstances, though, it is important to think first of all about the mental health and welfare of the child. Among the ways to do this is for the long-distance parent to schedule video call sessions with the other so they don't interfere with moments like when the child is in the middle of dinner or their schooling. The parent with whom the child lives may also want to jot down a list of topics to get the most out of those video calls.
