Upcoming events while you are away

If you are frequently separated from your kids for long periods, due to working away from home, frequent travel, or access limitations, it can be difficult to keep up with all the upcoming events in your children’s lives.

You may not be able to get to all the events at your child’s school, but make sure before you part from your children that you have put upcoming events in the calendar in your phone or laptop – not just the school concert or the athletics carnival, but also class tests or talks, excursions, or anything else that is important to your child. Then make sure you send them a quick message or phone call beforehand to wish them well and let them know you are thinking of them, AND call afterwards to see how it went.

Tips:

Consistent family routine

Establish a set routine for your children that applies whether they are with you or with your partner or ex-partner.

Experiences:
