Separations and divorces are never easy. When you add children to the mix, it becomes even harder. When the divorce is painful, or unwanted by one party, co-parenting can become difficult to manage between two partners who often don't communicate effectively. Whether you need help setting a weekly schedule or just working out the day-to-day parenting, Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor can help with getting both partners on the same page.
Our counselors work with each parent, separately or together, to help you find the best way to work with each other to raise your children. While you are no longer living in the same home, your children will still be spending time with both parents (ideally). Children thrive when raised by parents who agree on specific parenting styles, even when those parents no longer reside under the same roof. Keeping personal issues separate from parenting issues is not easy for all couples, and this is where co-parenting counseling can help.
Parents Who Could Benefit From Co-Parenting Counseling Include:
- Parents who agree that the focus needs to be on their child(ren) rather than on personal issues between the parents.
- Parents who need help setting up a reasonable visitation schedule for their child(ren).
- Parents who believe that their child(ren) should have similar expectations in each household.
- Parents who are looking for help with the day-to-day parenting after a separation or divorce.
- Parents who want to set up a strong parenting alliance for their child(ren) after the relationship between the parents has ended.
- Parents who are looking to strengthen their co-parenting relationship.
- Parents whose child(ren) is/are exhibiting signs of stress after the dissolution of the parents' relationship.
- Parents who are looking to improve communication and decision making.
- Parents who are looking to change how they interact with each other in order to help the child(ren).
Parents want their children to have a secure base to grow from, and co-parenting counseling can help parents give that foundation to their children. Children can thrive after a separation and divorce if both parents are committed to doing the best they can for their children. Foundations Counseling can help you achieve success.
