Co-parenting relationships should be built on positivity

Your co-parenting relationship begins at the second that you find out about the divorce. The tone of this relationship can be impacted by what happens during the child custody negotiations. It is imperative that you and your ex set the right stage for these situations. Everything that happens during this process can have a direct impact on your children.

It is going to take both adults to keep the co-parenting relationship on track. Both have to decide that they will focus on the positive. This might be a challenge during the times when there are disagreements, but there are some ways that you can keep your focus where it needs to be.

First, make sure that you are well-rested and that you are keeping up with your physical health. Taking the time to eat a healthy diet and to get exercise can help you immensely during this time. By doing these, you are ensuring that you aren't cranky before the interactions with your ex.

Second, focus on what you are thankful for. This can help you to remain positive, and it can teach your children how to do the same. Gratitude lists and journals might be beneficial in these cases.

Third, keep all communication respectful. Every interaction with your ex should be focused on the children. Your tone of voice and word choices should be almost business-like so that there aren't any negative connotations.

Every decision that you and your ex make about the children should be discussed in the parenting plan. This ensures that both parents are on the same page, and it helps to provide stability for the kids.
