It's the time of year when families come together to give thanks for all that is in their lives. For co-parents, Thanksgiving can be the first event in a busy holiday season. Our child custody attorneys share three reasons to be thankful for co-parenting this winter.
Being Able to Support Your Child Together
When co-parenting, you and your child's other parent will help develop a support system for your child. As your child will have sports games, recitals, school plays, and more events you want to be there for, you and your co-parent will have the opportunity to support your child together. This shows a united front to your child and ultimately helps you be there for them.
Being There For Your Child’s Milestones
As a parent, it can be upsetting to know that you might not be there for your child’s big days because they are not during your time-sharing portion of their schedule. Through co-parenting, you can collaborate with your child’s other parent so that you can be there for your child’s big birthdays, first words, and major achievements, no matter who has parenting time.
Limiting Conflict Between Parenting Styles
With co-parenting, parents will need to work together and ultimately will adopt similar parenting methods. This can help limit overall conflict between parents, as they will likely have similar approaches to parenting and might collaborate when deciding rules, punishments, and how to raise their child.
