I’d say the majority of clients I work with have divorced parents. Its not uncommon for me to have both parents in the room at the same time, during therapy, not speaking a word to one another, barely making eye contact, and making it obvious there is a lack of communication and serious tension. Don’t get me wrong, I know there are going to be times were tension is part of the deal. I get that. But, there are some tips I’d like to share with you, which give way to handling that tension, making transitions smoother, and yes, communicating briefly without anger. Below is a list I have compiled together which will give you a few tips on how to ‘co-parent’ while being divorced. All of these tips work for whatever age group or stage you are in.
