Start by creating a parenting schedule

Separating from your partner when you have children can be tough for you – and for the kids. It’s important that any decisions you make about parenting are in your children’s best interests.

Start by making a parenting schedule on your phone or computer. Create a cycle that suits your family, then choose handover days, times, and locations that work for both of you.
