Tips for effective co-parenting
Raising children presents challenges. When parents live in separate homes, the challenges are more significant. The relationships are sometimes more complicated, with the children are balancing living between two family homes. Sometimes parents disagree about how much time children should spend with each parent.
Unless particular circumstances exist, preserving a healthy and ongoing relationship between children and both parents after a separation is of most importance. Positive involvement with both parents furthers the child's emotional and social development, academic achievement, and overall adjustment.
Adult children of separation describe the loss of contact with a parent and conflict between their parents as the most painful part of the parental separation.
