Successful Co-Parenting~ Education for Divorcing or Separating Parents

Coparenting families have a unique set of challenges. They also have opportunities to build strengths. For children it may mean adapting to a new family arrangement, moving between households, or living with a single parent or another caregiver.

Transition to new family arrangements can be tough. It may be a time of sadness, loss, and anger. For parents, it may mean transitioning through divorce or separation while finding ways to coparent peacefully and effectively.

One thing is clear: ongoing conflict between parents after divorce or separation is associated with poor out-comes for children.

There are many ways coparents can reduce conflict and help children thrive in a coparenting family. Whether you are transition-ing after a divorce or separation or you have been coparenting for some time, there’s good news…

YOU CAN HELP YOUR CHILDREN WORK THROUGH TRANSITION AND FIND WAYS TO COPARENT SUCCESSFULLY TO CREATE A HAPPY, HEALTHY FUTURE
