  • Kids love when their parents attend their recitals, concerts, and sporting events but not if co-parents make it stressful. So, mind your etiquette. Sit where you feel comfortable and be respectful to the other parent. After the event, let your child hug or talk to each parent no matter who has visitation. To keep the event safe for everyone, don't discuss parenting matters otherwise it turns a recital into a business conversation. Let the moment be about celebrating your child.

Ron: Does your child live between two homes? When attending their activities, follow these event-etiquette guidelines.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Kids love for their parents to attend their recitals, concerts, and sporting events but not if co-parents make it stressful. So, mind your etiquette. Sit where you feel comfortable and be respectful to the other parent as you walk in and out. After the event, let your child hug or talk to each parent no matter who has visitation.

And to keep the event safe for everyone, don’t discuss parenting matters at the event. That turns a recital into a business conversation and takes the focus off your child. You can talk about that stuff later. Let the moment be about celebrating your child. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
