Co-Parenting Counseling in Connecticut & Virtually

A Modern Approach to Parenting

Co-parenting can be a great way to provide a stable and loving environment for children, even when the parents are not together. In fact, co-parenting has become increasingly popular as more parents recognize the benefits of working together to raise their children.

What is Co-Parenting?

Co-parenting is when two people share the duties of raising a child or children, more so of parents who are separated and no longer in the same household.  It can be difficult when a relationship dissolves and two people are faced with trying to still raise a child.  We are here to support parents and blended families in navigating the unknown while gathering tools to put plans in place so that the focus can be where it matters most- on the child. 

Co-parenting can be a challenging but rewarding experience for both parents and children involved. Here are some additional points that may be helpful to consider:

  • Establishing clear boundaries and expectations can help to avoid misunderstandings and conflicts between co-parents.
  • Consistency in parenting styles and routines can provide a sense of stability for children who may be adjusting to living in two different households.
  • It’s important for co-parents to be flexible and willing to compromise when it comes to making decisions about their child’s upbringing.
  • Effective communication, whether it be in person, through email, or by using a co-parenting app, can help to maintain a positive co-parenting relationship.
  • Seeking support from a therapist or co-parenting counselor can be beneficial for co-parents who may be struggling to navigate their new parenting dynamic.

Overall, co-parenting can be a successful approach to parenting when both parents are committed to putting the needs of their child first and working together to provide a loving and supportive environment.
