Building stronger relationships with your kids after divorce

Many parents worry about their relationships with their children after they get divorced. They have to share custody with their ex, and they know they'll see the children less often than they did before.

You don't have to resign yourself to a lower-caliber relationship than you had before or than you want. You just need to put your time and energy into building stronger relationships when you are with the kids, and you can do that by focusing on quality time. Here are a few things you can do together:

  • Create a fun routine for bedtime. It doesn't just have to be a struggle to get the kids in bed. Spend time reading books, singing songs and telling stories.
  • Engage in childhood games. Embrace those things you loved when you were younger and you haven't done in a long time, like building forts, playing with Legos or simply pretending together. Meet the children at their level.
  • Play active games. If you're missing your time working out because you have the kids, make them part of it. Play basketball or go swimming. Get a jogging stroller and take them exploring while you run.
  • Camp out in your backyard. You get all of the convenience of being close to home, but it still feels epic to children. Another option is to build a fort and have a sleepover in the living room. Do things that are exciting and different and the kids will love it.

Naturally, you also want to make sure you understand your child custody rights so that you're getting the proper amount of time to bond with your kids.
