Co-Parenting Through the Eyes of A Child


Kids whose parents have a cooperative relationship:

  • Feel secure. When confident of the love of both parents, kids adjust more quickly and easily to divorce and new living situations and have better self-esteem.

  • Benefit from consistency. Co-parenting fosters similar rules, discipline, and rewards between households, so children know what to expect, and what’s expected of them.

  • Better understand problem solving. Children who see their parents continuing to work together are more likely to learn how to effectively and peacefully solve problems themselves.

  • Have a healthy example to follow. By cooperating with the other parent, you are establishing a life pattern your children can carry into the future to build and maintain stronger relationships.

  • Are mentally and emotionally healthier. Children exposed to healthy and successful co-parenting are less likely to develop issues such as depression, anxiety, or ADHD.
