This advice is written by some girls who formerly attended Corl Street Elementary. It is their advice, not mine, but I thought they were pretty wise!
Be honest with kids.
Don’t talk about the otherparent.
No arguing with the otherparent in front of kids.
Don’t try to buy kids love.
On the phone don’t hang up –
Say, “I don’t want to talkabout it”
Or change the subject.
Let kids continue theirregular activities.
Keep a regular schedule forkids.
Enforce rules with kids; itshows you care.
Let kids call the otherparent if they need to.
Don’t make kids eat out allthe time.
Play with kids… give morethan the bare necessities.
