In the beginning, divorce may feel like a win/lose situation. One person may seem to have everything on paper, while the other battles to make ends meet. On the other hand, one parent who has everything finds that they have significantly less time to spend with their kid, while the other stays with their kid all the time. 

The situation may not speak for your situation, but creating a balance between the family life, your emotions, your child’s best interest, and everything is essential while creating a perfect parenting plan.

How to create a perfect parenting plan

  • Understand your child’s needs

The perfect plan should have your child’s best interests first. Their best interests contain your life’s most critical elements, including both emotional and physical needs. You should know what your child’s best interests are, but taking it slow to think about them seriously will help you make a “map” that guides you towards making the perfect parenting strategy. 

Every family is distinct, and managing the parenting schedule should meet your family’s specific needs. It is helpful to consider both your child’s emotional and physical needs when creating a plan in their best interests. 

  • Physical needs include clothing, food, shelter, rest, mobility, protection from harm, medical care, etc.
  • Emotional needs include healthy mental health, maintaining touch with parents, handling their personality, etc.

Some parents also consider their child’s particular wishes when counting their best interests. Their development stage and age often influence how much importance their wishes come into play.

  • Creating a parenting plan that works

The parenting schedule will decide your family’s new routine and give everyone an opinion of how much time your child should spend with you or co-parent. It is an important aspect of the parenting plan, so it is essential to prepare a schedule that will work for your family and adhere to it. There are various ways to manage a parenting schedule and select a routine that is perfect for your family, depending on your child’s interest, yours, and your co-parent.

  • Have a plan for communication

You may assume that you can easily figure out how to keep in touch with your co-parent and children as you ease into the shared parenting routine. Still, once your child starts moving from your home to another parent’s home, you will need to keep all the essential information available organized in both houses, and you will discover that you desire a perfect form of communication. Do not wait for the time to make decisions about communication.
