1. Prioritize Stability for Your Children’s School Success

Children thrive on stability and consistency. The Law Office of Bryan Fagan suggests maintaining a routine and discipline in your child’s life, as you did before the divorce. This will help them understand that things haven’t changed as much as they may think. If feasible, consider living close to your ex-spouse to minimize travel time for the children when transitioning between homes. Proximity shows your children that their needs come first and that you can set aside differences for their sake. It also proves helpful in emergencies or unexpected situations, making coordination simpler.

2. Maintain Family Roles

Despite the changes in your family’s structure, emphasize that you and your ex-spouse are still the parents, and your children are still the children. Avoid relying excessively on older children to provide physical and emotional support to younger siblings. Encourage your children to contribute to your new home environment by assigning age-appropriate responsibilities, such as kitchen cleanup or pet care. These tasks help your children feel integrated into your new home, boost their self-confidence, and reinforce their family roles.

3. Consistency in Words and Actions

Hold yourself accountable and demonstrate consistency in your actions and words, just as you expect from your children. If you’ve established rules about homework or other responsibilities, adhere to them consistently. Be punctual during pick-up and drop-off times, as this shows your children your commitment to your promises. Maintain a positive attitude toward your ex-spouse, even when you don’t feel like it, to set an example of respectful communication for your children. Your actions at home can significantly impact your children’s success in school, as hard work, consistency, and determination are vital attributes for their growth.
