How does it work?
- Each month, set up the calendar with your child, placing school days, activities, travel, and days with each parent.
- Each night, take off "today" and talk about what you'll do tomorrow.
- Put your child's life in context, reducing their anxiety and helping them feel in control of their own life.
- Choose a different color house or apartment for each parent, or create a custom magnet to look like any man or woman.
- In 50/50 custody situations (or near to it) get two sets of the calendar - one for each parent's home.

Why do kids need a visual calendar?
Little kids get anxious when they don't know what
to expect. A visual schedule helps your child understand
her life, so life doesn't just happen to her.
Gives a sense of control
Kids have a fundamental need to feel some power over their
lives. Involving them in the process of schedule-planning
makes them feel like an active participant in creating it.
Provides a constant reminder
Little kids often can't remember our words, but visual
aids help reinforce them - giving them the ability to
truly learn complex concepts like shared custody.
Kids love learning new skills, feel important
having their own schedule, and learn the concept
of "looking forward" to fun activities.
explain complex custody arrangements
Kids love the cute (but not cute-sy)
magnets. Parents love the subtle
colors, which won't interfere with decor.
Easily build the right calendar
for your unique family, with magnets
for every activity or family situation.
Magnets are strong and won't fall
off accidentally. The calendar can be
wiped clean with soap and water.
Divorce is a tough concept, made even harder by shared custody.
