Parents evening: who attends during divorce and going forward?


My son has parents evening coming up and both my husband and I want to go.  How do we agree on who attends while going through divorce and going forward?

There is no reason both of you should not go to your sons parents evening. You are both his parents and will want to remain involved in his upbringing and education. If you are not in a place emotionally  where you can attend together, many schools offer two parents evenings. Therefore you can both attend but on different days. Alternatively, speak to the school about having separate appointments on the same evening so that you can still both speak with your son’s teacher and get an update on his progress during this difficult time.
