If you are a parent and facing a divorce in Raleigh, North Carolina, one of the main issues that you are going to have to come to terms with is how to co-parent your child with your soon-to-be ex-spouse.  One of the nice things about Wake County, and Raleigh in particular, is that there are lots of wonderful activities that you can take your children to in an effort to get their minds off of the trauma of the divorce or separation.

Whether you live in Cary or Raleigh, each community puts out a Recreational Guide each season that lists all of the activities that you can attend with your kids.  These include classes dealing with art, crafts, or nature, or outdoor activities at many of the local parks and lakes.  This past summer, my wife gave me a day off of housework by enrolling me in a sailing class at Bond Lake!  There are also sports activities and classes, and much more.

Whether you live in Cary or Raleigh, some of the other fun recreational activities might include a night at the symphony, a show at Koka Booth Amphitheatre, or one of the many arts fairs that occur throughout the year.  One of my wife’s favorite events is the “Dog Days of Summer” that occurs annually at Bond Park in June, or the Cary Art Show.  Bottom line – there is barely a weekend that goes by that you can’t find at least something to do that will get you out of the house and spending some time parenting your kids.

Even though going through divorce is no fun, there are many activities that you can take part in with your children to help build your relationship with them, and take some pressure off the other parent.  Divorce and parenting in Raleigh or Cary doesn’t have to be all bad.
