It seems like there is a really obvious answer, but it is surprising how many parents can’t co-operate after separating. When parents co-operate during and after separation – or at least appear to co-operate in front of the children – probably one of the most motivating reasons is for the children’s sake. Research indicates that children with parents who co-operate have a far better chance for a secure and satisfying life.
It is important to co-operate, not just for the sake of the children, but also for the parent’s benefit as well. When parents co-operate, you and your family will have:
- better relationships with your children
- fewer problems with your children
- more personal satisfaction
- less frustration
- less parenting time problems with your children
- fewer child support problems
- fewer chances of going to Court
- easier sharing of responsibility
- more freedom from conflict
- fewer health, emotional, school and social problems for your children
