Celebrating Co-Parenting

Co-parenting requires acceptance of and respect for the other parent and the child’s relationship with that parent. Co-parents organically succeed at reinventing what it means to be “family” despite separate households. They share the same beliefs about parenting, communicate well, and do not espouse the “territoriality” or “children as possessions” behavior (my time is mine…my child, my way…only I know best) that hallmarks parents who struggle with co-parenting (or, worse, seek to estrange or alienate the other parent). These folks are the most likely to have no parenting agreement or custody order, or if they do, it lives in a drawer and they live life doing what’s best for their children.
