What is co-parenting?


Making Divorce Work for All

It is possible for divorce to be good for all. With help, parents can develop guidelines to prevent their children from being emotionally troubled and developmentally crippled for life. Some parents have no interest in “keeping their family together” after the marriage comes apart, but also do not want to harm their children. The defining characteristics of an effective co-parenting partnership may look different for each family. However, finding a “common ground” between former partners when it comes to their children is essential to preserving the well being of the children. Identifying the characteristics of your parenting partnership requires setting and maintaining clearly defined boundaries, determining when and how you will connect with your ex-partner, and having a strategy to keep the children in focus. To be effective requires the assistance of trained and experienced professionals. NCPC Contact
