Cooperative Co-parenting

According to Tammy G. Daughtry of Co-Parenting International, there are over one million new divorces a year, the rate of divorce is growing daily! Thousands of children are affected by divorce and the lifelong interaction between their biological parents. Intentional and purposeful Co-Parenting can make an absolute difference in the emotional health, wholeness, and future stability of the children who are often caught in the middle of unresolved issues between their parents.


To co-parent well you have to get along. You have to put your differences and emotions aside and find a way to cooperate with him or her for the sake of the children. Parenting is about your children's well-fare, development, emotional and spiritual nurturance, not your personal needs. It's important to find ways to be cordial and cooperative with people you dislike or distrust. Parenting decisions, goals, and attitudes need to be centered around what will benefit your children and increase their desire for the Lord. Here are some helpful

resources to articles, books, and website that will support you in your cooperative co-parenting skills.
