Life changes when the children are not in school. For the stay-at-home parent, scheduling activities and appointments keeps everyone busy. When both parents work, careful planning must be made in advance. Typically the children are enrolled in all-day summer camps, daycare, or babysitters are lined up. Parents must agree on where the children will be placed and how the parents will have those expenses paid. Of course, there may be periods of time during the summer when the summer camp or daycare center is closed. It is best if the parents planned their vacations to cover those days. Sometimes one parent takes vacation from the time school closes in June until the camp or daycare starts. Usually the other parent will take vacation between the period of time that the camp/daycare is closed and school starts again in September. All of this takes careful planning and negotiating in advance. Unfortunately, when people are going through a separation or divorce, it is not always feasible to reach agreement on these issues.
