Coming to terms with divorce as a family is challenging at best, and extremely difficult if all involved parties are not willing to cooperate and work as a team. While you might be looking forward to summer break with your kids, you may also feel anxious because it's your first summer since your divorce. Or perhaps it is your fifth or sixth summer since then, but you're worried anyway because you know your ex always tries to throw a wrench into your plans.
It likely won't help your kids much if they spend their summer watching their parents fight. Then again, you shouldn't have to sit back and do nothing if your former spouse isn't playing fair. It's better to have a plan of action in mind and to know exactly where to seek support if a problem arises that you can't resolve on your own. Keep in mind, however, several ideas may also be helpful if your goal is to have a low-stress, enjoyable summer with your kids.
