More than a parenting plan: Embrace the unknown such as Hurricanes

In Florida, if you have kids, you are required to file Parenting Plans. What the plan entails is what will
happen to your kids’ welfare in case of a divorce. It basically covers things such as holiday programs,
regular programs and extracurricular activities. In other words, it covers anything related to a child-
parent relationship.

Much as parenting plans are geared towards parenting essentials, they don’t touch on natural disasters
such as hurricane. In such instances, there is an unexpected abruption in schedules that should be
considered by the parents. While in some cases parents may be able to work through the disaster by
shifting around the given schedule, there may be instances when the plan may not be effective.
In life, it is not possible to account for each and everything that may or may not happen. However, it is
possible to have contingency plans in place in case of unexpected events. As such, it is not a bad idea to
have in place a hurricane plan so that in the event of one, there is no question as to where the kids will
be.

Being able to anticipate and plan accordingly for as many occurrences as possible can save your plenty.
This helps ensure that you do away with avoidable problems in the future as far as your kids are
concerned.
