Did you know that the CDC has approved trick or treating for this year?
If you have not done so already, now is the time to communicate with your co-parent to ensure you are on the same page about Halloween plans with the children.
And while you are at it, take the time to talk about what you are planning for the upcoming Thanksgiving and December holidays.
Ideally, speak with your co-parent directly. Please do not negotiate through the children.
Getting your plans figured out before the holidays are here will go a long way toward helping your children be mentally prepared for where they will be, and with whom, during this important time of the year.
