What Is Co-Parenting, and Why Is It Beneficial for My Child?

Divorce can be hard on children, but balancing parenting plans post-divorce can make the transition to this new stage of life a bit easier for them to handle. Co-parenting is the process of working collaboratively with your former spouse to raise your children well despite living in separate households.

Even though you and your spouse have separated, it’s important to maintain a sense of stability, caring, and respect for the sake of your children. This ensures your children will have a good relationship with both parents after the divorce.
