Parenting Plans

Mediation of Parenting Plans

“I don’t think one parent can raise a child. I don’t think two parents can raise a child. You really need the whole village.” 

Toni Morrison

The separation of 2 parents can be a time of high stress for both children and the adults involved. Megan Main-Baillie is committed to ensuring that the best interests of children are protected in the separation process in order for children to grow into healthy and thriving adults.

What is a Parenting Plan

A pareting plan is like a road map for famlies who are in the process of separation. This road map navigates the living arrangements of the separated famliy, the way in which the child/children will be cared for, how conflict will be resolved and everything in between, inlcuding the management of schooling, holidays, birthdays, step-parents etc. Parenting plans need to be developed with the child/children’s developmental stage in mind and needs to incorporate a level of flexibility in order for the plan to change as the child/children enter new develomental stages which naturally come with different needs and expectations.

Parenting Plan Process

Megan Main-Baillie offers an in depth mediation process between parents in order to produce a parenting plan that meets the best interests of the child/children involved. Megan Main-Baillie brings her extensive knowledge of family sytems, conflict resolution and child development to the process of co-creating a parenting plan that is sustainable, appropriate and most importantly fosters the growth of all members of the family sytem. Several mediation sessions with the parents will be conducted until a mutually acceptable resolution is reached. The child/children will also be evaluated during this process in order to produce a parenting plan that child-centred and fosters happy and thriving children.
