5 Reasons to Co-Parent After Divorce or Separation



Why co-parent after a break up?

Unless issues of abuse, addiction, or insurmountable conflict make it impossible, co-parenting is in your child (or children's) best interest . Research, anecdotal evidence, and plain old common sense bear this out:

· Kids whose parents co-parent feel more secure.




· Children benefit from having both parents play an active role in their lives.




· Co-parents cooperate with and are supportive of each other as parents. Seeing their parents getting along reduces the trauma children experience in the wake of a divorce or separation.


 


· Co-parenting parents are half as likely to go to back to court to settle their disputes. Less time stressed out about legal wrangling means more time to be fully present with your children.


 


· Co-parenting practically eliminates child support default.
