Co-Parenting and Halloween

By October 31, 2018Blog

Halloween is a huge deal for kids!  While some couples choose to include this holiday in their Settlement Agreement, others do not.   Things have changed at home, but planning ahead as co-parents to find the right solution can make the holiday more enjoyable for all.   Consider the following:

  • Trading every other Halloween so that each parent can go trick-or-treating with their kids
  • Going together (this only works if the couple remains civil)
  • Divide the events – one parent can take the kids to the school costume parade while the other takes them trick-or-treating
  • Making treats or carving pumpkins ahead of the holiday if you are unable to spend the holiday with your child
  • Create new traditions

However you choose to deal with the holiday – make it memorable for your children.
