This schedule has a child spend two days with one parent, two days with the other parent, and three days with the first parent, then it switches the following week. The parents alternate who gets the child on the weekend. One benefit of this schedule is that both parents get equal amounts of weekend time.

 

To create this schedule, parents will need to create six Repeating Event Series, three for Parent A and three for Parent B, with each event set to repeat every other week.

 

Each parent will need two separate two-day events and one three-day event.

 

Follow the steps below to create the 2-2-3 Schedule while using the website:

 

  1. From the Calendar section of your account, select the green "+" icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen
  2. Select the "Category Color" (This step is optional but useful for customizing events on the calendar. Please note: your co-parent will not be able to see the colors you have chosen for your events)
  3. Enter the "Event Name" (ex: Parent A)
  4. Under "Event Details", enter any notes regarding the event (optional)
  5. Select a "Start Date" (ex: First day of Parent A's two-day Event Series)
  6. Select an "End Date" (ex: Last day of Parent A's two-day Event Series)
  7. Select a "Start Time" and an "End Time"
  8. Toggle "Repeat this event?" and enter how often this event repeats (for this schedule, select "Weekly")
  9. From the drop-down under "Repeats every", select "Other week"
  10. Under "Stop Repeating Event", select "Never"(or you can enter a date that the event stops repeating by clicking "On date" and entering a specific date)
  11. Click "Create Event"

 

Example - website view:

In the example below, Parent A's first two-day event repeats every other Monday and Tuesday, followed by Parent B's every other Wednesday and Thursday. This is followed by Parent A's three-day event that repeats every other Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  The next week is switched, with Parent B's second two-day event repeating every other Monday and Tuesday, Parent A's second two-day event every other Thursday and Friday, and Parent B's three-day event every other Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
