What is co-parenting counseling?
Co-parenting counseling is when parents who are no longer living together need counseling to resolve their differences for the sake of the care of the children going forward. It is different to relationship counseling because there is no aim to get them to reconcile and to consider living together again. And sometimes they already have new partners anyway. Rather it is to allow them to find better ways to communicate and to set rules for the development of their joint children.
Co-parenting counseling is often desperately needed. Your therapist will always make sure to involve all the people involved in the child(s) life (e.g. parents, grandparents, child-minders, step-parents etc). So it is a little similar to family counseling. Sometimes a group meeting helps to make sure that everyone is on the same page about how the children will be disciplined etc.
What are the aims of co-parenting counseling?
One of the main things is to get each co-parent to agree to not say negative things about the other co-parent to their children. Co-parenting counseling can be a continuation of counseling they may have had to help them to divorce amicably. It can help to keep them working on the best way forward for them as parents.
Co-parenting counseling can also help when the co-parents have been through a bitter divorce. There can sometimes be a lot more work required to settle remaining differences so that they can then work well together as co-parents.
