Summer Vacation/Holidays sharing kids between the 2 households

Please hellllp!

How do other co-parents work out the summer holiday period sharing the child/children?

The father is a teacher so is off for 7 weeks. I want him to have adequate time with our 2 year old daughter but without compromising her stability and emotional well-being.

What do other parents do? With both young kids and older?

Or are there any children here that were co-parented and had a suitable or not so suitable plan?

Thanks so much for your imput it would certainly help me derive to a suitable plan.

If you live close enough... one week w/ you, one week w/ him makes sense... If you don't live close enough.. court 'typically' splits the summer, so she would be w/ him 3.5 weeks and you 3.5 weeks.

Although at 2... if you have a working relationship you could come up w/ an agreement that is in YOUR child's best interest. The above mentioned are just typically the types of arrangements that courts decide.
