Transcripts

Ann Dolin: Divorce is hard enough as it is. Flowing homework on top of it adds a whole new layer to an already complicated situation, many successful divorced couples have a system in place to ensure that despite these obstacles their child gets the academic attention he or she needs.

First off, communication is everything. Many parents have found that creating a communication checklist is a great tool. Make a list of everything a child needs to take with him for homework when switching from one house to another. Also list any homework or other projects the student has for the week, especially big tests to study for.

The other parent can look at over and update the list before sending the child back and lastly, it's important to unify when it comes to being involved in your child's school life. Make sure you are both going to teacher conferences, either together or in separate meetings and make sure your child knows what's expected of him concerning homework and grades, regardless of which home he is in.

Once you have a system in place, with clear expectations and strong communication your child can thrive academically in this new environment.
