Parenting in the Rain, Episode 15

Tips for Successful Co-Parenting (even in high conflict situations)

In This Episode:  (this information is also available on the free download) 

 

 

Lorrie Brook provides some tips regarding Communication & Respect for parents struggling with co-parenting in separation and divorce situations in their families.

Communication

It is important that despite living in 2 separate households you both maintain an open line of communication within the family. 

If you aren’t sure if it is something worth telling ask yourself this:

Use this question as your guide –“If this happened in the other parent’s household would I want to know?”  If the answer is yes – let them know.

When you are communicating with the other types remember these tips:  1. Be polite 2. Be concise 3. Don’t exaggerate, embellish or understate what happened. Tell it as it is.

Respect

While co-parents are no longer in a romantic relationship with each other, they are in a co-parenting relationship and as such respect plays a big role.

Here are some tips:

1. Be polite

2. Use your manners (please and thank you go a long way!)

3. Don’t talk badly about the other parent in front of the children

4. Don’t allow others to talk badly about the other parent in front of the children

5. If your children mention the other parent to you – don’t roll your eyes or the like.

6. If your children start to be rude or disrespect the other parent, correct them and talk to them about it.
