Co-operative parenting

Most of the available evidence strongly suggests that the children who adjust best to life after family separation are those that are able to maintain strong, positive relationships with both parents.


Choosing to be co-operative parents after divorce or separation does not require you to remain friends. However, establishing a business-like relationship with your child’s other parent will help your child to feel secure and loved through the transitions that separation brings. It will also mean that your child is less likely to suffer emotionally and psychologically in the years to come.
