Get the kids involved in making holiday gifts at your home — a custody strategy, not just a nice gesture.

Take advantage of the upcoming holidays, and get your kids busy making gifts. Not just buying gifts…but rather, making them. Get the children invested in the holiday spirit by turning their rooms into Santa’s workshop. Producing gifts at your home is much more than generating holiday cheer. It’s a strategy to strengthen the children’s ties to your home and to associate your home with the most festive moments in their lives.

There are dozens of crafty things the kids can do in preparation for the holidays. Have them collect all the loose buttons around the house: Sort them, paint them, and paste them to picture frames, gift boxes, and other items. Get the kids started making photo books or special audio and video recordings of themselves singing or performing on their musical instruments. Keeping the kids engaged in the process tightens their connection with your home, and helps them form a happy relationship with you.

In a contested child custody case, the activities that the children undertake during the holiday season can be addressed in your courtroom testimony. When the kids are later interviewed by the court, their happy times at your home will yield favorable memories and recollections. So, while you’re enjoying the holiday spirit, take some strategic steps to improve your success in family court.
