THERE WILL EXIST A WELL-INFORMED, WELL-CONSIDERED, AND YET FERVENT PUBLIC CONVICTION THAT THE MOST DEADLY OF ALL POSSIBLE SINS IS THE MUTILATION OF A CHILD’S SPIRIT.
Children typically need and
want to see both parents during the months of summer. Sometimes the general
schedule may continue during the weeks of the summer. Most summer schedules may also be
completely changed to best meet the needs of the children. It is so important to insure
that the childrens needs come first. It is so easy to focus on the parents needs and miss
the needs of the children.
With almost all summer schedules each parent shall be entitled to one, uninterrupted period of parental responsibility of the child(ren) of up to two weeks in duration each year. This depends on the age of the child the needs of the child
The parents shall attempt to schedule such vacation periods to minimize overlapping with the non-vacationing parent's custodial time. A party shall give the other at least two weeks notice of when they will take their summer vacation with the child(ren).
The variations for summer schedule are almost endless. The only guideline for the summer is to please insure that the children see both parents frequently and that the childrens needs are watchfully attended to.
This is an all to common statement that children of divorce speak about. Give children a sense that they at least have some control over their time with their parents.
Also, in mediation, agree that the childrens schedules will be negotiated year by year. This is due to changing vacation schedules and needs of the children. The parents agree to be sensitive to each parents scheduling needs and if disputes arise the parents agree to refer the dispute back to mediation.
