Being A Parent Post-Divorce

Cooperating with your ex for the sake of your children can seem overwhelming in the early stages of the divorce. Try to put aside your relationship issues, your hurt and your anger towards one another and put your children’s needs first.

Peaceful, consistent, and purposeful communication between parents is essential to the success of co-parenting.

In this excellent blog posting, Jennifer Safian offers steps that you can take to help your children cope with the effects of separation and divorce, with appropriate adjustments dependent on the children’ ages.
