10 Essentials of Co-Parenting After a Divorce
“Kids learn more from what a parent does rather than what is stated.” During times of crisis, like a separation or divorce, our individual feelings of despair can be overwhelming. Yet it is during these trying times that it is imperative to put the needs of our children first. Children are not equipped to handle the stresses that adult situations place on them so parents should strive to demonstrate that they can set their own feelings aside and do what is best for their children. Co-parent in a respectful and loving way and your kids will remember. They will know that they can rely on each parent and the loving foundation that was set for them will not be disrupted. If you are faced with a separation or divorce please remember that by choosing what is in the best interest of your children, versus what you want in that moment, will assure that your children are on a path to being healthy and well-adjusted adults, who have a close relationship with each parent.
