A guide and workbook for divorcing parents that provides a child-centered framework upon which to create a parenting plan that leads to successful co-parenting and well-adjusted kids.
When parents are divorcing they require a skillfully developed parenting plan that outlines the structure, predictability, and daily rhythm of co-parenting with the goal of creating a stable, healthy, two-home family life for their children. The agreements and guidelines set out in a parenting plan agreement establish clarity about each parent’s responsibilities to their children and to each other, and it becomes the template for co-parenting children through to adulthood. This workbook provides sound guidance, advice, and reassurance for co-parents embarking on making these significant decisions.
