The Rules of Visitation

If you didn’t get main custody of your kids in the divorce, then you can look forward to years of visitation rights and custody bickering. However, although the horizon may seem bleak, there are many things you can do to help the time you do have with your children be the best it can be.

The first thing that usually comes out is something negative about your ex. This is not the way you want to start out your visit. Think positively so that you and your kids can have fun, no pressure, and always want more time together.

Secondly, if you have found yourself in a less prosperous position than your ex, you should spell it out to your children. Explain that, although it may not be what they are used to, it can still be fun. Take them on adventures, and make the memories that they will never forget.

Lastly, you need to talk to them and let them talk to you. Sometimes it is not all fun and games. Divorce is extremely difficult on children. Sometimes they do not have anyone to talk to at home, so seeing the signs of depression can let you help your children in a way your ex cannot.
