• The most important ethical values and norms to guide both parents’ actions while bringing up the children
• What the financial responsibilities of each parent include
• How access will be granted to parents as well as third parties (i.e. grandparents, new relationships ect)
• Where children will reside primarily, including exceptions made for major holidays, birthdays and any other special events
• How medical care such medical aid coverage, medical consent and medication will be regulated
• How disciplinary issues will be enforced as a shared responsibility
• How disagreements about aspects in the Parenting Plan will be managed
• What names that the child/ren will be called, including nicknames
• How religious affiliation, attendance and religious ceremonies will be conducted
• How the schooling of children will be managed, including language, type of schools as well as extramural activities
• Any other specified aspect of the child/ children’s rearing that has to be considered
