How to Co-Parent in a Healthy Way
STEP ONE: Communicate.
- Your communication skills are what your children will base their communication skills off of. Do your best to communicate in healthy and respectful ways.
- As hard as it may feel, give a level of control up and let the other parent do it their way.
- Check your emotions and the baggage of your old marriage at the door and put your child’s needs first.
- Know your child deserves to have a relationship with the other parent, no matter how messy the marriage was. And remember, one of the reasons you may have decided to separate was for your children to have healthy parents, even if that means in separate households.
How To Keep The Connection With Your Spouse
