The holiday season is busy for most people. Even if you try to keep things simple, there's a good chance you'll find a few extra activities on your plate. This is particularly true if you're co-parenting during this time of the year.
No one ever said that co-parenting is easy. In fact, it can be downright difficult at times. You hope to move on from your spouse after your divorce, but soon realize that co-parenting means you have to remain in communication with one another.
Divorce can reset people's priorities and create new challenges for life beyond the emotional turmoil. But the main consideration of divorcing parents must always be the top priority. Children often feel disempowered and confused when their home lives are affected or split up by a divorce or separation between parents.
In our last post, we discussed the different responsibilities that parents will have in the wake of a divorce. Taking care of their child -- and performing the duties of a parent in an organized and calm manner in light of a divorce -- is critical when the marriage ends, so finding a way to live your post-divorce life and take care of your child with your ex in an efficient and effective manner is a must.
Divorce is the end of marriage, but it is a new start in your life as a parent. While you are now single, you may still have to cooperate with your former spouse in making parenting decisions for your children. It's no secret that matters related to child custody and parenting decisions are among the most challenging aspects of divorce.
