Being good parents is hard even when you're happily married, but for separated or divorced couples, parenting can be particularly daunting. There is hope. Mindful Co-Parenting provides divorced parents a practical way through the process that protects their children. In this compact, step-by-step guide, written in a supportive yet direct style, clinical psychologists Jeremy S. Gaies, Psy.D., and James B. Morris Jr., PhD, identify what matters most to kids and describe the importance of parents being mindful of their children's needs and wants.
Starting with the question of whether or not divorce is the best option for your family, the book walks you through the process, from choosing the most child-friendly divorce proceedings, to navigating co-parenting after the papers are signed, to handling the future challenges of step parenting and other issues that may arise. By simply paying attention and planning ahead, you and your ex can reduce the potential negative effects of divorce on your family. Learn how to create a comprehensive parenting plan that can begin to establish a new norm for the benefit of your family's new future.

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
The first section on separation is terrible advice. If you move out of the marital home, even if you have good intentions, you've now changed the status quo to the benefit of the spouse who remains. Attorneys will tell you the same thing. Also, with 90% of separated couples progressing to divorce, it's simply not pragmatic advice. It's like it was written for an academic audience, not for everyday parents.
