Children of divorce face a number of health and developmental risks that can last well into adulthood. However, research shows that one of the most effective ways to mitigate those risks is by granting access to both parents via effective co-parenting.
Unfortunately, working with your ex to craft a reasonable co-parenting plan can be a challenge, particularly if there was a lot of animosity in your breakup. Psychologist Kristine Turner is the founder of the New Beginnings Parenting After Divorce program and works with families throughout the divorce process.
She joins DadsDivorce Live to talk about the challenges of co-parenting and how all parents can find a way to come up with a plan that benefits their children.
