We write a lot about child custody and visitation issues, and many of our blogs are advice driven. For most clients their current divorce will be their only divorce. Much of what they are dealing with is foreign to them; especially when it comes to custody issues. As parents we want what’s best for our children, but often the emotion and turmoil surrounding a divorce can get in the way of making the best decisions.
One thing I have found to be helpful for children is to continue on doing the extracurricular activities they have always done. It provides stability and continuity in an otherwise new and changing circumstance. Extracurricular activities also provide children a way of expressing themselves and maintaining a healthy confidence; both of which are important as they adjust to their new lives.
