A new school year will soon begin in Maryland. If you're currently navigating divorce, you may be anxious and worried about child custody arrangements and how your children will handle school work while adapting to their new lifestyle. If things are fairly amicable between you and your former spouse, the school year may progress without much difficulty. In fact, when you're both willing to compromise and cooperate where necessary for the sake of your children, there may be options available to keep stress levels very low.
Have you heard of nesting in divorce? This is a fairly new trend designed to help children retain a sense of stability and routine while coming to terms with their parents' divorce. It's definitely not for everyone, but it may be an option if you're able to work together with your children's other parent and you want to minimize stress in their lives as you all adapt to no longer living together under one roof.
