What tools and tricks do you use to help your kids settle back in following custody transitions? Is there a favorite meal you prepare? A game or family ritual you engage in? Or do you find that your kids prefer to have a little space while they adjust? Every child is different, and even different children within the same family will have unique preferences.
If your kids are young, you may also find that doing something creative can help -- from drawing pictures to writing letters. If you're looking for a little inspiration, try these Coloring Pages for Single Parent Families. Each one depicts a mom or dad enjoying time with their children and includes a related story and enrichment activity, as well.
