Ways to Communicate with your Ex Over the Holidays (or anytime really!)

As the holidays get closer, there can be many things to discuss regarding the custody and access of your children.  Even in situations where communication is normally not problematic with your ex, the holidays can sometimes be a stressful time making communication with an ex partner particularly difficult.

Some general suggestions include:

1) Keep your communication focused on the topic at hand;

2) Be respectful;

3) Be open minded to other ideas;

4) Keep communication short, if possible, and

5) Take a break from the communication if it starts to become heated.

In some situations, parents may find it easier to communicate through the use of a communication tool or App.  If you would like to explore a few options, some examples of tools for communication can be found at the following links:
