PODCAST:Co-Parenting After Divorce
Sherry Smith is a licensed marriage and family therapist, psychotherapist, certified divorce coach, author, speaker, and podcast host. She combines her training, practice, and experiences to promote non-adversarial divorce environments that support the family system. Sherry defines and describes co-parenting and shares tools, techniques, and resources parents can use to ensure their children are supported and empowered.
- Co-parenting occurs when you and your former spouse have a somewhat amicable relationship, and you are united in the way you raise your children. Your parenting relationship is still there as it was before, but you’re doing it from two different homes.
- Parenting coordinators are individuals who act as an intermediary between the parents and help them learn how to communicate more effectively. They are helpful in situations where there’s difficulty and enmity between the parents.
- When frustrations arise, it’s easy to say things in the height of emotion, but you often regret it as the dust settles. Instead, you should take some time to calm down and engage in a self-soothing practice, like deep breathing, to gather your thoughts and communicate them in a progressive manner.
- Sometimes, situations occur when one parent is neutral about their former spouse in front of their children so they can foster love for the other parent, but the other parent speaks negatively about them. In time, the children will see which parent is more well-adjusted.
