FamilyLife Blended®with Ron L. Deal
Event Etiquette Thursday, December 3, 2020
Does your child live between two homes? When attending their activities, follow these event-etiquette guidelines. Kids love when their parents attend their recitals, concerts, and sporting events but not if co-parents make it stressful. So, mind your etiquette. Sit where you feel comfortable and be respectful to the other parent. After the event, let your child hug or talk to each parent no matter who has visitation. To keep the event safe for everyone, don’t discuss parenting matters otherwise it turns a recital into a business conversation. Let the moment be about celebrating your child.
