Each individual is unique. Plans must take into account the uniqueness of each child and parent. The Parenting Plan must clearly define, with specific details, each parent’s responsibility to their child and to the other parent especially when they share a special needs child, or when a parent suffers from a mental illness or substance abuse disorder.

Before entering negotiations with the other parent, each parent must determine what parenting arrangements will be in their children’s best interest. When parents typically use problem solving discussions to resolve conflicts, a parenting plan may include general guidelines that leave room for accommodations to the changing needs of the child and the households. When parents have difficulty communicating with each other and experience repetitive conflicts, a parenting plan must clearly define, with specific details, each parent’s responsibility to the child and to the other parent during their parenting time and transitions of the child from one parent to the other.
