SAMPLE EMAIL FORMS

These sample emails can be adapted to your family and your style, and used in communicating with the other parent in a consistent, effective and positive manner. You can also use them as printed memo forms that you hand-deliver or mail to the other parent. Each sample has a unique subject line that is designed to give the other parent a "heads up" that the email will follow a certain pattern and is communicating a certain message.

For each sample email, You can click on the "email now" option. This will bring up the template in email form. Just fill in the "to" and "from" information and customize the details. Or you can click on the title of the template to download it in Microsoft Word form and cut and paste it into your own email program. If you use the Word version, when you are emailing the other parent, use the "subject" line from the template as the subject heading of your email.

If the other parent receives one of these emails and it has a "Reply" section, all that parent needs to do is hit "reply", check one of the options, and send.
