Transitioning Positively to Co-Parenting
If you and your spouse have decided divorce is best for your relationship and your children, you may already be thinking about how to go about dividing custody. Co-parenting may seem like a near-impossible task, but it’s largely a matter of tackling it with the correct approach.
For starters, if the divorce is acrimonious, it’s important to work on managing feelings of anger. This goes a long way in reducing the stress involved while potentially avoiding conflict and reducing the stress that could affect your children.
Try and practice empathy. While you may be thinking of what’s best for you and your children, it’s worth keeping in mind that your soon-to-be former spouse is also in the process of adjusting to new circumstances just like you are.
Despite the negative feelings that may be involved, refrain from judging. You may not agree with the way the other person is handling things or their lifestyle, but judging will only lead to potentially false assumptions and negative feelings. Just like the other person has no idea what internal struggles you may be facing, you also may not know theirs.
