The Guide to Conscious Co-Parenting Through Divorce & Beyond

The Guide to Conscious Co-Parenting Through Divorce & Beyond

This workbook is designed to help you understand what your children need (based on their age and stage of development), how to reduce conflict with your former partner, and practical things that you can do to support your children's growth.

About the workbook:

For separating parents, often the biggest question on their minds is “how will this affect my kids?”

Divorce can be a traumatic experience for both children and their parents. While divorce always affects children, the purpose of this guide is to help parents minimize its impact on their families by becoming a conscious co-parent.

What does it mean to be a conscious co-parent?

You can’t change the past or your former partner, but you can control the choices you make moving forward: how you choose to engage in the divorce process and the role you take on as a co-parent.

Being a conscious co-parent means that you are aware of your core values and committed to making choices that are aligned with those principles – regardless of long-standing wounds or fresh antagonisms between you and your former partner.

Contained in this 100 page workbook are sections that address what your children need (based on their age and stage of development), how to reduce conflict with your former partner, and practical things that you can do to support your children’s growth and resilience.
