Co-parenting refers to the process of raising children by two parents who are no longer in a romantic relationship. This type of parenting often arises after a divorce or separation, but can also be applied to parents who were never married.
There are a number of issues that can arise in co-parenting, including:
- Communication breakdowns: When two people are no longer in a relationship, it can be difficult to communicate effectively, especially when disagreements arise.
- Conflict over parenting decisions: Two parents may have different ideas about what is best for their children, which can result in conflict and tension.
- Lack of consistency: When two parents are raising children in separate homes, it can be difficult to maintain consistency in rules and routines, which can be confusing and unsettling for children.
- Interference from extended family: Family members on both sides may feel compelled to offer their opinions or become involved in the co-parenting process, which can further complicate the situation.
RISE coaching can support progression in co-parenting by helping the parents to effectively communicate, collaborate, and make decisions that are in the best interests of their children. Coaches can help the parents to identify and resolve conflicts, set and maintain boundaries, and establish routines and systems that promote consistency and stability for the children. Coaching can also help the parents to navigate any interference from extended family members and find ways to work together as a team.
