Co-parenting is a post-divorce parenting arrangement in which both parents continue to jointly participate in their childrens upbringing and activities. This involves a substantial amount of interaction between the parents (both in public and in private).
What does good co-parenting look like?
Successful co-parenting means that your own emotions—any anger, resentment, or hurt—must take a back seat to the needs of your children. Co-parenting is not about your feelings, or those of your ex-spouse, but rather about your childs happiness, stability, and future well-being.
What is co-parenting and how does it work?
Co-parenting refers to the act of two parents raising a child even though they are no longer romantically involved. Both parents work with each other to ensure their child has a safe and loving environment to grow up in and—in an ideal situation—communication lines between parents are kept as open as possible.
