5 Tips from Resolution to Manage School Holiday Stress

Hooray! The schools have now broken up and my own children are happily at home enjoying what they do best, which is arguing with each other!

Generally speaking separated parents will by now have reached agreements (including through mediation) or made applications to the Court about how their children will spend time with the different parts of their family during the school summer holiday. It is always much better if these things can be agreed. It is much much better for children if holiday contact can be agreed well in advance in order to allow the children to look forward to spending time with each parent and to going on whatever holidays have been arranged.

Below is an info graphic produced by the family solicitors organisation: Resolution, which includes five tips for stressed out parents of all varieties.

Resolution is an excellent organisation and I have been a member for around 20 years and I have served spells both as the Chair and Treasurer  of the Devon regional area of Resolution. I would never advise anyone to instruct any solicitor on a matter of family law, who is not a Resolution member.

East Devon is a location where many choose to visit on their summer holidays, and we are blessed with the beautiful Jurassic Coast, enough sandy beaches to build a decent sandcastle, beautiful countryside and lots of places to visit and things to do. At the start of August. There is the annual Sidmouth Folk Festival, which makes parking virtually impossible around the town! Like everyone else, I am hoping to take some time off. There are some good tips below, but as with all these things, it’s a case of reading, and picking out what works for you.
