Listen to your children. Don’t judge your children and don’t tell them how they should feel.
6Set limits and expectations for your children
Set healthy behavioural limits in your home. If you are not sure about these limits in the current circumstances of your separation, ask someone competent for child-rearing advice. Don’t be afraid that your children will run away and seek refuge with your ex because you’ve set limits.
Some children are very skilful at setting their parents against each other. Don’t fall into this trap. Share with your children what you expect them to do when it comes to waking up, school, homework, household chores, bedtime, and so on. Your expectations must be clear and reasonable.
…here’s a solution: 2houses provides an opportunity for clear, full, and changing communication between ex-spouses that is free from all emotional charges, in the strict interest of their children.
Children must always feel that they are supervised by parents who are attentive to and aware of their scholastic and extracurricular activities, health, and so on.
2houses is an extraordinary way to enable parents to continue managing their joint child-rearing responsibilities. It offers precise management of expenses and a customisable parenting schedule that the children may also consult.
2houses helps parents to carry out their parental responsibilities serenely, in the absence of an emotionally charged context. That, in any event is how various family dispute specialists – lawyers, judges, psychologists, and teachers – see it.
