Cooperative Co-parenting: for the sake of the child | Saint Paul, MN
Minnesota Co-parenting Resources
Cooperative parenting with your ex can give your children continued stability and close relationships with both parents—but it certainly isn’t easy. In reality, putting aside relationship issues to co-parent amicably can be extremely stressful and difficult.
Joint custody arrangements, especially after an acrimonious split, can be exhausting and infuriating. It can be exceedingly difficult to get past the history of hurts and built-up resentment you may have with your ex. Making shared decisions, seeing one another at drop-offs, or just speaking to someone you’d rather forget can seem like impossible tasks. But while it’s true that co-parenting is not an uncomplicated or perfect solution, it’s the best way to get your children’s needs met and ensure their closeness to both of you.
Your marriage may be over, but your family is not; doing what is best for your kids is your most important priority. Fortunately, Dorman Mediation is here to help.
