Back to School Issues In Different Homes

By Sarah Jacobs, Esq.

Every parent wants their child’s school year to go as smoothly as possible, and we know this includes co-parents. In this video, we give you tips on how to navigate school issues such as tests, homework, and projects from two different homes. Tune in now – just because.

Welcome back to another episode of Just Because. If you are a working parent like me then you already understand that the back to school rush has started. And you are trying to navigate how to get your child all the supplies and think about everything that they can possibly need while balancing all the other issues on your plate. What comes to my mind when thinking about this is what you should be thinking about if you are divorced or separated and how to navigate the school issues in two different homes, specifically what happens when they have to study for tests, when they have to do projects, when they have to do family projects. This is essential, and you need to think about communication between you and your co-parent. Who´s going to start the project? Who is going to get the supplies for the project? Who is going to finish the project? Which parent is responsible for making sure the child gets that project to school? These are all considerations that you should be thinking ahead of time and make sure this is as smooth for your child as possible. Good luck on that first day and stay tuned for another episode of Just Because.
