Pepperells: Are you missing making memories this Easter holidays?
School holidays are a special time to share with your loved ones, spending time making memories, going on adventures and having fun.
However, at Pepperells, we understand that not all parents have the opportunity to make memories with their children during the school holidays.
If you are going through a divorce or you are living separately from your children, deciding who has contact with them on which days of the week or weekend can be challenging, especially if the dates falls outside of your normal or agreed time with them or if your regular contact sessions are broken or cancelled last minute.
To avoid missing the opportunity of making memories during the school holidays, perhaps you could;
Rearrange your contact timetable to be flexible with special event days or school holidays,
Why not arrange to do something with the children just before or just after the holidays when normal contact resumes,
For special days, such as birthdays, Mothers or Father’s Day, you could take the sadness out of not receiving a gift by treating yourself to something special when you have your children,
Perhaps arrange a crafting day where you make your own card with your children if your ex-partner is not likely to arrange something for you from them
Limit how much time you spend on social media during the holiday season, seeing other families making memories and having fun could be challenging,
Or if seeing your children in person is not an option, perhaps a video call could be arranged at a time which is convenient for both sides.
If you are finding it difficult to deal with the complexities of child contact after a divorce or separation, or you are still upset that you were unable to see your child or children this Easter Holidays, it is best to get legal advice to be in the best position for the next special celebration day.
