WILL CO-PARENTING WORK AFTER MY DIVORCE OR SEPARATION?
You want to separate or divorce but you also want to minimize the disruption on the children. You are in the middle of a custody battle but you want to try to find an amicable way to work with your ex-spouse. Have you considered co-parenting? Co-parenting after a divorce or separation involves both partners being actively involved in the lives of their children. It requires maturity, discipline and the willingness to do very hard work.
Parenting experts say that good co-parenting involves drawing clear boundaries with your ex, carefully navigating bringing new partners into the mix and having straightforward talks with your children. You must have the maturity to put your children’s interests first and put your own hurts and grievances aside.
