Actionable Solution

 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.
 
STEP TWO: Let Go.
  • As hard as it may feel, give a level of control up and let the other parent do it their way.
 
STEP THREE: Check Yourself.
  • Check your emotions and the baggage of your old marriage at the door and put your child’s needs first. 
 
STEP FOUR: Trust.
  • 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.
