Divorced parents face new challenges in back to school season

Keeping up with children is hard. With kids now returning to school, knowing what supplies to buy and what fashion statements to avoid is a challenge for every parent. When a family has divorced, there are extra challenges looming. Co-parents need to agree on budget, timing, schedules and more.

Back to school can be difficult for children after a divorce

A divorce is hard on everyone involved. Even in the most problematic relationships where two spouses cannot wait to be legally divorced, the legal process adds unique stress. While adults and children both suffer, adults have a better grip on the situation and tend to cope better in the aftermath.
