9 Points to Making Co-Parenting work when Divorce is inevitable
Here are some important tips to know:
- Stay child-focused. Remember to put children first before your own interests and agendas.
- Set a schedule sharing your time to be spent with the children.
- Respect each other. Do not display your bad behaviour against each other in front of your children.
- Learn to communicate effectively with each other. If face to face does not work out, try texts, or WhatsApp as alternatives.
- You are no longer in ‘control’ of your spouse and the sooner you drop this notion of continued control, the relationship as future co-parents becomes better.
- Let go of your anger and emotions. Being angry against your spouse will cause you to lose focus on your children.
- Try not to order your spouse or communicate in a tone that sound like you are making demands but make requests instead.
- Always get the other parent to make joint decisions with you in respect to major issues in children’s lives.
- Be a team player. It is not about you but the children.
