Shared Family Plan: Ten to Twelve Years, Part II

  • School-age children can do well with many different parenting plans as long as they provide for frequent contact with both parents.
  •  Where possible, plans should include overnights during the week and on weekends.
  •  Some options include alternating weekends with three or four overnights, split weeks or alternating weeks.
  •  Children should be given the opportunity and privacy to call the other parent.
  •  Children’s preferences should be considered and respected. Remember that parents should still make the final decision.
  •  It is important to accommodate the child’s social activities and commitments.
