Are you separated or divorced and want the best thing for your children? Learning to co-parent is one of the best things you can do for your children.
Co-Parenting: Competition or Collaboration?
Co-parenting is not a competition or a form of emotional tug-of-war
between two hearts that pulled away from the other.
Instead, Co-parenting is a model of working together in conflict and peace.
Intentionally, making a choice to build collaboration.
Deliberately, teaching our children how to resolve differences
through respectful disagreement.
Purposefully, standing on the commitment to practice and honor boundaries.
Tenaciously, learning to stay in our own lane,
understanding the differences, when the road we travel
demands one driver or two.
– Damaris Conrad
