After you've created an account on an online parenting time tracking site, update the calendar to reflect the dates/times each parent will look after the children. Also, input information on doctor's appointments, school events, etc. This way, no parent will miss something important or take the blame for not notifying the other parent of an event. Many of these tools are set up to send email reminders making it very simple to stay on top of the schedule.
The Biggest Benefit to an Online Parenting Time Tracker
When a record exists that both parents can see at any time, you prevent conflict over what took place in the past and what is scheduled for the future. You also make it easy to update the other parent on activities and events without having to make regular phone calls that could lead to an argument.
Other Benefits of the Online Tool
In addition to keeping track of schedules, you can log communications, create a shared contact list, share files and photos, keep an online journal, and enter expenses that both parents need to see. Make sure to choose a service that lets you keep some information private from the other parent. Always choose a password that is made up of numbers and letters that does not spell a word and is hard to guess.
Choosing the Right Tool
A simple Google search will turn up several options. Select one that has positive user reviews and offers a free trial.
