Co-Parenting and Divorce

What does Co-Parenting and Divorce mean?

Co-parenting is parenting by both parents from separate households after a separation, divorce or birth of a child out of wedlock. The goal of co-parenting is to have both parents engaged with the child, working collaboratively with the other parent, to provide effective and respectful parenting for the child.

Because all families and children have unique challenges, gifts and strengths it's important for parents to work together and learn how to best parent their children. Children are adversely affected by the consequences of divorce, particularly in the case of diminished parent-child relationships and exposure to parental conflict. Co-parenting allows each parent to have regular and routine interaction with parents which allows for secure attachments.
