Co-Parenting Agreements
  • Each parent agrees to have the children bathed, dressed, and fed, before the other one picks them up.
  • Each parent agrees to spend some time going over homework with the children, before returning them to the other parent.
  • One parent agrees to contact the schools and instruct them to send copies of all correspondence to both parents.
  • If one parent is shopping for the children's school clothes, the other agrees to shop for and purchase all clothing related to the children's extracurricular activities, including sports, scouts, etc.
  • Both parents agree to refrain from saying anything negative about the other within earshot of the children.
  • Both parents agree that the children should have a real home with each of them, and that neither should just have "visitation" with the children. Each parent provides a home that has some of the children's furniture, clothes, personal care items, games, and books.
  • Both parents agree to post a calendar in a place where the children can see it, showing everyone's schedule. With children too young to read, a picture of Mom or Dad on the calendar can indicate whose turn it is to take care of the them.
