This is certainly a stressful time for parents who are divorced/separated and sharing custody of children during the pandemic. Here are some things to consider.
Establish a schedule that keeps all involved focused on your child’s best interests. Set up a schedule that is reliable and prioritizes safety.
Look at what is urgent and essential and take care of that first.
Ask yourself, what is a healthy thing you could do to take care of yourself too?
And finally, it’s okay to ask trusted friends or family for help or to seek counseling.
