Have a conversation with your co-parent.
Return your co-parent’s texts or phone calls.
Set aside the anger you feel toward your co-parent in order to make a parenting decision.
Not feel you have to play tit-for-tat with your co-parent.
View your child’s time with their other parent as your child’s right and not an effort by your co-parent to control the situation.
Support you co-parent’s efforts to parent even if you disagree with their parenting style.
Unless a parent is abusive your child has the right to have both parents in his or her life. Even married couples disagree at times about discipline, a child’s behavior, school issues, the list goes on. But married or not, parents still have to parent and in the case of divorced couples that could mean working with someone you may not like or even respect.
If you are truly willing to do “anything” then consider the most important thing you can do in a divorce situation – take your child out of the middle of the co-parenting relationship and be parents. Obviously this can be difficult at times, so if things get rocky consider mediation as a way to revise, touch-up, or otherwise improve your co-parenting plan and your co-parenting relationship so that your decision to divorce does not fall on the shoulders of your children. There is a better way!
