How To Co-Parent Following A Separation Or Divorce?
Dr. Sue gives crucial tips on how to co-parent following a divorce.

• Benefit from consistency. Co-parenting fosters similar rules, discipline, and rewards between households, so children know what to expect, and what’s expected of them.

• Better understand problem solving. Children who see their parents continuing to work together are more likely to learn how to effectively and peacefully solve problems themselves.

• Have a healthy example to follow. By cooperating with the other parent, you are establishing a life pattern your children can carry into the future.http://www.helpguide.org/mental/coparenting_shared_parenting_divorce.htm

Nasty divorces can affect a child’s self esteem and future intimate relationships on so many levels. Make a choice to put your children first and invest in co-parenting.
