Creating a positive and beneficial co-parenting experience

Every year, many Kentucky couples who are embroiled in volatile relationships, turn to divorce as a way to correct marriage drama by going their separate ways. Unfortunately, in a majority of cases, these couples have had children together who are left grappling for normalcy in a world that has been turned around. In fact, according to ky.gov, nearly one million children experience the effects of divorce every year in the United States. While there are many approaches to arranging child custody and parental visitation, co-parenting is one solution that holds promise if executed the right way. 

The Huffington Post provides parents with some helpful ideas about what they can do when it comes time to arrange custody to facilitate the transition for their children and make it as smooth as possible. some of the things they can do include the following:

  • Prioritize communication: One of the biggest mistakes that parents can make is to rely on their children to communicate for them. Rather, parents should speak directly with each other for schedule verifications, decision-making and developments in the lives of their children. 
  • Schedule: Parents will benefit tremendously from sitting down and making a realistic schedule that addresses when each will spend time with the children and for how long. Children will benefit from having a schedule because they will know what to expect and be able to have a sense of stability and normalcy.
  • Practice flexibility: There will undoubtedly be times when both parents will be required to compromise. Couples should do their best to work together and be supportive of each other during these times despite differences in opinion. 

Parents should try not to compare the differences between relationships. Rather, each parent should embrace the unique relationship they share with their children and respect their ex's opportunity to do the same.
