Child custody: Tips for successful co-parenting

Although marriages end for a myriad of reasons, the top priority for most parents who divorce is the safety and well-being of their children. It is not uncommon for both parents to want primary custody of the kids, which can cause child custody battles to erupt. However, more California parents these days are choosing co-parenting custody arrangements. Here is some helpful advice to follow for successful co-parenting.

Divorce can be ugly and emotions may linger. In order for co-parenting to work, parents must be a cohesive unit and put differences aside for betterment of the children. The marriage is over, so don't drag problems from the marriage into parenting. Leave the past in the past and never say negative things about the other parent in front of the children.

Like all things, good parenting exists in continuum. People do things differently, but this doesn't mean one person is right and one is wrong. Learn to let little things go and embrace differences, which will help broaden the perspectives of the children. Also, do not rely solely on the other parent. Building a support system of friends and family can be very beneficial.

Parenting is never easy, especially after a divorce. However, co-parenting can be a very positive arrangement for both children and parents. Through cooperation, parents who have divorced can create a stable environment and facilitate development for their children. Those in California who have questions regarding child custody may want to consider discussions with a legal representative. An experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney can answer questions and provide much-needed guidance.
