CoParenting After Divorce: A GPS for Healthy Kids
Divorce is not something that happens once in a courtroom. It is a lifetime change for everyone in the family. Old patterns have to be changed and new patterns have to be tried out and then kept or thrown away.
Using a GPS analogy, CoParenting After Divorce: A GPS for Healthy Kids presents a road map to making changes in the new family system, either with or without the help of a parenting coordinator. Included are:
- Explanations of the process
- Examples of parenting coordination
- Self-assessment exercises to help parents assess their own behaviors
- Specific tools to help improve communication, focus on children’s needs, and resolve parenting issues
- Develop a customized parenting plan
The whole family will benefit from this dynamic, scientifically-supported information. It will help parents understand the benefits parenting coordination; how to track factors important for children’s development; how and when to adjust the parenting plan; and how to handle bumps in the road and avoid common mistakes!
