The divorce process takes a huge and significant toll on all members of a family. While you probably wish that you and your soon to be ex-spouse were the only ones impacted, this is just simply not the case. If you share children, you must learn how to co-parent after divorce and your children must learn how to thrive in two different households. Once a divorce has been finalized, many people find themselves unprepared for the various emotions and experiences that they feel and are surprised by them. The differences in parenting after divorce is something that catches many people off guard. The changes that are brought on by the divorce are often difficult, if not impossible, to predict. AMS Mediation can help you find the stability and predictability you are looking for your children.
Co-Parenting Effectively After Divorce
It may not be possible to anticipate the changes that come after a divorce. This is exactly why we offer a parenting coaching service to our clients. This service can be extremely helpful to people who discover that their divorce did not solve all of the problems that existed with their spouses. Parenting coaches have a great deal in common with many other kinds of coaches. Parenting coaches provide guidance through confusing and often difficult circumstances involving their children and their former spouses. Parenting coaches also serve as motivators, providing reminders of the individual’s strengths and strategies for overcoming shortcomings. Your parenting coach can help you develop priorities, goals, strategies for communication and process the emotions that you are feeling.
What Can a Parenting Coach Help With?
If you have children, there is likely nothing more important following your divorce than the parenting partnership you and your former spouse establish together. But because of the levels of stress so often associated with even the most amicable divorces, many parents find themselves underprepared for the kinds of issues that pop up once the divorce has been finalized.
Our parenting coaching service can help you use best practices such things as:
● Boundary setting with your former spouse
● Helping your children understand and respond more constructively to ongoing conflict you may have with your former spouse
● Navigating the complex schedules that divorced parents and their children tend to have
● Developing strategies for helping children manage the differences in each parent’s household
