    Default School Holidays

    Hi everyone

    I'm about to cop a huge load of grief from my exh as I'm trying to organise the upcoming school holidays. I can tell he's going to make things difficult for me just because he can (and I'm too weak to stand up to him).

    Just interested in how everyone handles school holidays with their ex partners so I can have something to work off when he confronts me - please share.

    I'm not in your situation as my DD's only 3 and being raised by now DF instead of FOB but when I was younger my mum and dad had it organised that we spent half of the holidays with each of them. We were 8 and 10 so we chose if we wanted to spend Christmas with mum or dad and my step family. Usually we spent half of the day with Mum then went to Dad's.
    If either of them wanted to book a holiday away they just organised it around that. It worked out pretty well this way. Good luck!

    If it was the 2 week holidays, my ex and I agreed to do one week each. This NEVER worked as the first time he had him he called me after the first night nagging me to pick him up. He just wasn't interested and it put me in a pickle as I hadn't organised care because I thought the arrangement was for his dad to 'care' for him. So glad those days are over!

    Not sure what kind of hassle he's going to give you but perhaps a week each might be a compromise? I know a lot of non-custodial parents want the kids the entire holidays but this seems a bit unfair as why should the custodial parents miss out on holidays with their children?
