Parenting can be difficult in general, but after separation or divorce, it can be even more of a challenge. It's important to remember that your children did not ask for their parents to separate and should not be caught in the middle. It's also important to make sure your child doesn't blame them-self for the situation. Parenting Solutions can help you help your child understand what is happening, and can provide techniques that both parents can use during and after the transition. Co-parenting amicably can give your child stability and maintain a close relationship with both parents. You can remain calm, stay consistent and avoid conflicts with your ex, joint custody CAN work. By co-parenting with the other parent your children can establish a life pattern that they can carry into the future.
