How important is having a routine for visits?

Create a Pickup and Dropoff Ritual

Set and maintain a pick up/drop off ritual and be on time! Let each other know what time you can expect the other to be there. It is a good idea to give the kids a little warning of an upcoming visit so they can get ready. If a child seems distant towards the end of a visit, he or she is probably preparing for the transition to go back to their other home. Always reassure your children of your love and commitment to them!
