A GPS for Healthy Kids: Co Parenting After Divorce
A Parenting Coordinator often becomes involved when parents have been unable to successfully implement their parenting plan or previously agreed upon time-sharing and custody arrangement. Parents may recognize their need for help or they may be referred to Parenting Coordination by their attorneys, the court, mental health professionals, mediators, or others who are familiar with Parenting Coordination.
Parenting Coordination, an alternative dispute resolution process, is designed to help families whose pattern of interaction is characterized by chronic hostility and conflict. Parenting Coordination is a process designed to help parents who are separated, divorced, or never married learn how to resolve their parenting disputes outside of court and reduce the excessive cost of litigation.
This book is a companion to Parenting Coordination: A Practical Guide for Family Law Professionals and is written specifically for parents and families who are experiencing conflict in their co-parent relationship. This guide will help parents know what to expect from the Parenting Coordination process and how to make the best use of this service to reduce the harmful effects of conflict which jeopardizes the well being of children. When parents are able to effectively communicate about their children and create a sense of stability and security, children benefit and the family unit as a whole functions more effectively.
