It can be especially difficult for the main child care provider to get used to the children going to the other parent’s home. The house may feel strangely quiet and the loss of constant interaction with children can feel lonely.
Over time parents adjust to the parenting time schedule but to ease the transition here are some suggestions:
Take time for yourself and RELAX
- Rent a movie you wouldn’t watch with your children and enjoy some peace
- Clean the house, pay the bills, get your errands done so when you have your children you can spend your time with them and not doing miscellaneous chores
- Invite friends over
- Go for a walk, a run, or to the gym
Most parents learn to cherish the time they have away from their children because it gives them a chance to re-charge and then they can be better parents when they have their parenting time.
