Co-Parenting Calendar Bundle for Kids of Divorce

$69.00 Regular price $79.00
Style

"I cannot even begin to describe how helpful this calendar has been for my daughter...being able to see how her schedule works with simple symbols has really helped her adjust to the new normal." — Jennifer R.

When parents separate, everything is thrown into chaos. Kids might start acting out or show signs of stress and anxiety.

As parents, we want to help — but it's hard to know what will make a difference. This calendar, as simple as it seems, will be a game-changer.

This co-parenting calendar was the first product for Mighty + Bright. After founder Sara Olsher created a visual schedule out of desperation for her two year-old daughter, she was shocked by the results. Within a day, her daughter's stress level changed dramatically, and Sara knew other families needed a co-parenting calendars, too.

This co-parenting bundle includes everything in our weekly calendar kit, plus our coparenting sticker sheet and an extra set of magnets.

This set includes:

  • Weekly Connection Calendar
  • 2 sets of magnets
  • "What to Expect Each Day" Reusable Stickers
  • "When Will I See Each Parent?" Reusable Stickers

About our weekly charts:

  • 11" wide by 5.5" tall
  • Dry erase
  • Each day fits up to four stickers (on magnets or basic pieces).
  • Our Premium Magnetic Chart is durable, strong, and designed to hangs anywhere: Magnetic surfaces like refrigerators, or walls using our brad nails. It is compatible with our premium glass magnets.
  • Our Basic Non-Magnetic Chart is made of a flexible, rubbery material, which can stick to smooth surfaces over and over again. Not recommended brick or textured walls. It comes with foam-like pieces (not sold separately) for your reusable stickers.

You may be wondering...

Why wouldn't I DIY this?

You could. 

But often, we spend so much time trying to solve the problem that by the time our glorious velcro routine chart is actually done, we've lost the steam required to implement it. 

Our founder has done all the work for you — ten years of work, in fact — coming up with the perfect system for your family.

The result is a system that might look simple, but has every single thing accounted for — including a fall-back for routine items or activities that you forgot. 

After all, the last thing you want to do is spend a bunch of time DIYing something, paying to have it laminated, and then discovering you forgot something. 

Plus, you can feel good that you're supporting a single mom's hard work.

What makes this different from other visual schedules?

“We've tried to create visual systems before, but we really struggled to pull systems together that we could see all the way through and stick with.” — Jessye

You may have downloaded a visual schedule on Etsy or tried to DIY your own. Maybe you got one on Amazon, or you have a big command center, but the kids aren't referencing it.

Mighty + Bright's visual schedules are different (that's why we get feedback like Jessye's!). Every aspect of our well-thought-out visual system is thoughtfully designed to get kids on board. Here are a few of the problems our schedules solve:

  • Kids don't look at the command center. Kids need their own calendar with only their stuff on it. When there's too much to look at, their brains basically short-circuit and they get overwhelmed. 
  • Kids don't stay motivated to use it. Kids need something engaging and fun in order to stay motivated (that's why we use fun stickers, which kids LOVE, magnets that make that satisfying "click," and fun add-ons like our Stay on Task braceelt. We also have a special way of introducing our schedules, which you'll learn about in your Power Up.
  • Kids won't even try it, because they don't like being bossed. Kids need to feel like they had a say in their schedule (don’t worry, we’ve got a hack for that in the Power Up.)
Why are these so expensive?

We fully recognize that these charts aren't cheap. But there are several great reasons for that.

High quality with a thoughtful design

We've spent the last ten years perfecting these schedules. They're extremely tough. Made of thick, powder-coated metal and finished with a thick dry erase varnish, they're built to stand up to years of sticky fingers and constant dry-erasing.

They're also thoughtfully designed. Every aspect of these charts — from the neutral color of the chart itself to our exclusive method of using reusable stickers — is intentional. They're strategically designed to engage kids, so they actually get used long-term. They may look simple, but that's because we've taken all the guesswork out of it for you, so you're ready to go in fifteen minutes. 

Meant to last years

These charts grow with your kids as they mature. If you buy this for your four year-old, they'll still be using it when they're thirteen (seriously! Teens are usually too cool for the stickers, but the love of dry erase is lifelong, both on the magnets and the chart itself). 

Unlike a $10 chore chart from Target or a DIY from Pinterest, these are investments that are meant to last.

We're a small business

And speaking of Target, another major factor in our prices is that we are a small business

We don't have the buying power of Target, which means our products are more expensive for us to purchase. We also don't have the same flexibility as Amazon — we are real people

Sara runs the business. Angela runs the warehouse. Katie helps with social media and managing projects. And Cherry helps source products. When you buy from Mighty + Bright, you're helping real women put food on the table every night. In fact, 50% of our operation are single moms. And we are very, very grateful.

I have multiple kids. Do I need a calendar or chart for each kid?

If we want a tool like this to work, we want our kids to feel a sense of pride and ownership and like they had a part in building it.

Part of being a kid is feeling like life is happening to you. All the grown-ups make all the decisions, they're constantly telling you what to do and what not to do...just bossing you around, all day long.

Being part of the conversation about what is going to happen during the week or day gives kids a sense of control that every human needs in order to relax, no matter what their age is.

When you're splitting the calendars between multiple kids, you can understand how that sense of control might be diluted.

When they feel a sense of ownership over the calendar because it represents them and their lives, they feel a sense of pride. And with that sense of pride, comes a willingness to use it. And when they use it, they feel even more pride, and more responsible, and they continue to use it.

When something belongs to just us, we like it better. And we want them to like this and use it. So as much as I wish I could tell you that the kids can share it, it's going to be much more effective if they have their own.

We know that buying a chart for each kid can get very expensive, which is why we offer discounts on 2+ of every calendar kit.

What if I want to show a whole month at a time?

The decision to carry only weekly calendars was not made lightly — it was made based on research about what kids can handle.

The truth is, depending on the age kids can handle only about a week or two at a time. Especially when they're going through something difficult, it can actually increase anxiety to see too far down the line.

Also, depending on their age, they might not be able to think that far down the line. When a kid asks for a snack and you tell them they can have one in five minutes, they react like, "that is literally my whole life, I will starve to death." So if five minutes feels like that, imagine what a three weeks might feel like!

The goal is to display the child's life for them to understand — not to create a command center for the whole family. In this case, making it as simple as possible is a benefit.

That said, if you have a reason to show more than one week at a time (such as co-parenting arrangement where the child sees a parent every other weekend), you might want to create an always up-to-date perpetual calendar. Here's a post from Instagram showing you how to do that.

How It Works

Our brains process images 60,000x faster than text, which is part of what makes visual structure so powerful.

Beyond that, when placed in the center of your family's life (like on the refrigerator), we don't have the whole out-of-sight-out-of-mind problem we have with digital tools.

How These Help Kids, Specifically

Kids feel safest when they know what to expect.

Visual schedules not only help kids to understand their lives more clearly — having their own calendar actually empowers them. See, life happens to kids. But when they know the plans and feel like they've had a say in some of it, they don't need to struggle for power every day. That means way more tolerable behavior.

This habit will be a game changer: not only because you're showing your kids what to expect every day, but also because this time gives kids an opportunity to ask questions, voice concerns, and connect with you. That's why we call it a "Connection Calendar."

Tips for Use

Set up a weekly time — most families do Sundays before or after dinner — to go through the follow week's activities. If planning with kids, have your child rearrange the week's magnets, adding stickers to magnets for new activities and placing them on the correct day.

Every chart has two options for hanging:

  1. On a magnetic surface using the already-installed magnetic backing
  2. On a wall, using the included brads (note that the top of the brad is small enough to fit through the holes on the chart, so you can still take the chart off the wall).

While the fridge is the center of many homes, some charts are better suited for other locations, like:

  • near a bedroom
  • in the bathroom for morning and evening routines
  • on a kitchen wall
  • near backpacks in a mud room
  • on the back of a door

Great product!

I purchased this product to help my preschool daughter know which days she has school and other activities. She loves it and it’s helpful to point to the day so she knows what to expect!

Quality items

Bought the magnetic metal chore charts. They work great on our fridge. The only thing I wish could be optimized is how the website presents bundles of charts and stickers. I wish there was an easy way to completely customize how many charts and which sticker packs you get for a discounted rate. I didn’t get the exact stickers I was thinking I would because the ordering process was a little confusing.

Love the idea but glass & tile don't mix!

I bought a set of these glass magnet "to do" charts and while they are amazing... we have hard tile floors and so many of these were dropped and broke. I wish they were acrylic instead.

Oh no, Gina! I'm so sorry to hear this! We're happy to provide you with replacement magnets - or a nonmagnetic chart, which might be a better fit for this scenario. We'll reach out to you privately to coordinate that. We'll also keep the idea for acrylic magnets in mind!

Missing package then returning package

My package was not delivered to my address and when it was delivered, I expected something different other than what arrived. Not impressed at all. I will not be ordering from you again!

Hi Lauretta, Unfortunately we have been burned by a scam in which customers will report a package missing (even though they received it), so we replace it at no cost. Then they return the replacement order for a full refund and keep the original order, threatening a one-star review if we don't provide a replacement. This ends up costing us $30 in shipping fees alone, not to mention the cost of our product. We have this policy clearly stated in our return policy. I'm sorry if this has been disappointing; it is disappointing to us as well.

Great quality and a great system

They’re great quality trackers and have so many different options for care tasks and closing duties. The vinyl clings to the magnets and tracker well. You can exchange tasks on them easily too. Overall it’s a great system!

Great product, fast shipping

The magnetic chart is very well designed, and very well made! It's already helped me lower the overwhelm and make some progress towards putting my house in order.
