Recently, I was asked to share the Mindful Co-parenting Guide created by Custody X Change, a company that offers software for creating and managing custody agreements. But before I could share it with all of you, I had to review the guide myself to make sure it aligns to my views and advice on co-parenting.
After having done this, I can report that the Mindful Co-parenting Guide is a useful quick reference for divorcing and divorced parents. The online guide is organized into eleven parts and, like my book, Combative to Collaborative: The Co-parenting Code, covers a wide range of topics from telling your children about divorce to Stepparenting.
Additionally, this co-parenting guide provides helpful insights on such topics as coping with supervised visitation and long-distance parenting. These sections could be very helpful to those who are navigating these situations.
While I would not say the Mindful Co-parenting Guide is a deep dive into any of the topics it covers, it is a simple, concise set of tips that provide a quick read and straightforward suggestions on the areas of co-parenting it covers. Fortunately, as the guide is not intended to be comprehensive, Part 4, titled Seeking Help from Others offers a variety of wonderful resources where parents can get additional help. You might notice that they’ve included my book in this list. Woohoo!
What do you think? Did you find the guide helpful? Let me know in the comments.
