Father’s Day

fathersday

This year, Father’s day falls on Sunday 3 September 2017. When negotiating parenting arrangements, some parents forget about making special provision for these special occasions. Consequently, these special days can become a very stressful period for all involved.
Try and remember that Father’s day is about making an enjoyable and memorable experience for the children – special gifts purchased from the school ‘Father’s Day’ stall and giving home made cards is something most children remember with glee. These days should not turn out to be a tug-of-war about whose “day” it really is.

An example of an arrangement that could work for special occasions such as Father’s day and Father’s day may be:

  • The children spend Father’s day with their Father from 4:00pm on Saturday, 2 September 2017 to 4:00pm on Father’s day Sunday, 3 September 2017.
  • The usual living arrangements then re-commence from 4:00pm on the Sunday, so that the parent usually spending the weekend with the children receive the children back into their care.
