Parenting 101 under the Grounds of Child Custody

Posted On November 20, 2013

Becoming a parent is an experience of a lifetime. Nothing can ever be compared to it. This experience comes with a responsibility of child’s upbringing – from health to education and mannerism to making them a respectable individual in the society, it all is the responsibility of a parent, in fact, both the parents to be precise. When parents separate or get divorce, they leave a scar of sadness in the lives of their children.

Therefore, when a couple is headed for a divorce, it’s required that they plan the future of their children well in advance. Give them adequate time and nurturing and let them not feel left alone because of the legal battle going on in the court. Ensure that the child custody case doesn’t have an impact on the child.

Children often go through a tough time when the parents separate. It often gives them a shock that their parents will live in different homes and sometimes even lead the children to depression. So the parents need to do is have a parenting plan in place.

For Child’s Well-Being:

  • Create a plan that meets the requirements of your child. Do not try to adjust the child according to the plan; instead create a plan that fits your child’s personality, age, requirements, and abilities.


  • Ensure that proper education, medical care, and a healthy diet is available to the children hassle-free.


  • Help the children understand the details of separation. If they’re too young, make them feel comfortable and make sure that either of the two is always with them.


  • During the child custody process in court, have a time-share, custody, and visitation agreement in written. This agreement goes a long way. It is referred by the judge in the court and signed after consent is reached between both the parents. However, court’s decision may vary from case to case.

What to Consider for a Time-Share Agreement

While creating a parenting plan and a time-share agreement, consider the following aspects of the child:

  • Age
  • Health
  • Education
  • Medical Care
  • Security
  • Any special Needs
  • Mood of the children and their inclination towards a parent

Apart from these, other welfare activities should also be considered. Only then a parenting plan will be good enough and in favor of the children during the child custody case in court.
