If you are starting to work on your parenting plan or maybe you are revisiting your plan it is important that you compromise. Often time we might come to the table thinking about what we want our of the situation. The goal of a parenting plan is to create the best situation for the child (or children). By focusing in on what is best for your child, you can keep disagreements to a minimal. You will not always get what you want out of a parenting agreement. Sometimes the other party will not get what they want. The most important thing, however, is that your child gets what they need.
