A joint Co-parenting plan made by the parents is clearly best to avoid any future disagreements. There are various groups that offer support to shared parenting e.g. :
Share Parenting Information Group
- The visiting parent should give an indication of the childs whereabouts
- Leave a contact telephone number if the child is away for a long period.
- Every effort should be made to keep to agreed timescales and phone if late.
- Avoid making negative comments about the other parent
- Keep the contact consistent if the child is young.
- Lengthy contact allows a parent-child relationship to develop best.
Parental Alienation Syndrome
The Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) is the systematic denigration by
one parent by the other with the intent of alienating the child against
the other parent. The purpose of the alienation is usually to gain or
retain custody without the involvement of the father. The alienation
usually extends to the father's family and friends as well.
