Divorce doesn't have to impact children's academic performance

Divorcing parents are always concerned about the impact of their break-up on their children. One area where kids' issues with parental divorce often become apparent is in school. With the new school year underway and many kids going back to school for the first time since their parents split, it seems like a good time to look at ways that parents can keep their kids' academic performance from slipping.

Communication between co-parents is key. No matter what problems you have with one another, you should share information about your children's grades, homework assignments and projects. Co-parenting apps offer shared file systems that let parents communicate indirectly. For example, you can upload a homework assignment that your child needs to complete while at their co-parent's house over the weekend.

Communication with your kids' teachers is also essential. In addition to making sure that the school has both parents' contact information, let their teachers know that they should communicate with both of you regarding your child. However, don't involve them in your relationship issues or blame your co-parent for a child's poor performance or other problems.

If you're concerned about how a child is dealing with the divorce, let the school counselor know. They can keep an eye on your child and provide a little extra support.

Don't let your child's after school or extracurricular activities suffer in the divorce. Even though drop-offs and pick-ups can be more challenging now, try to ensure that a parent or other adult is always available.

If you and your co-parent run into issues that you can't resolve on your own, you may want to consider making modifications to your custody, support or parenting time agreements so that you can better meet your children's needs.
