Online divorce service MyDivorcePapers.com (MDP) works with many individuals who share parenting duties with their exes. Co-parenting can be a frustrating and tense scenario for both parents and children. To assist, MDP offers the following tips.

Tip One: Shift The Focal Point

Prior to filing divorce papers, MDP notes that many couples tend to focus on the relationship rather than the children, and when the marriage isn’t going well, a representative notes, “That focus is generally on the negatives — the tension, fighting, and so on and so forth.”

“Especially when the divorce is finally official, this needs to change,” the rep said. “Divorce is there to end the conflict, but that can’t happen if you’re both so intent on continuing the war. Let the process be a road marker that says, ‘Okay, now it’s about the little ones and doing what’s best for them.’”

Tip Two: Find A Release

MDP points out that few co-parenting situations are ideal. “There’s always a history there, and that can make it difficult to completely forget,” the rep said. “But when tensions are at their peak, you need to find a healthy outlet for your aggression. For some, it might mean going to a matinee by themselves. For others, it’s a workout. Others, a punching bag. The main thing is to control those emotions instead of letting them control you.”

Tip Three: Realize You Can Only Control You

Last but not least, MDP advises people who’ve finished their divorce forms to always do the right thing. “You can’t control your ex, and trying to will only drive you insane and create further conflict,” the rep said. “However, you can be the best version of yourself. By keeping your own nose clean, being child-centered and cooperative, and approaching the co-parenting situation from a non-conflict-oriented standpoint, it’ll be easier on everyone.”
