Combative to Collaborative: The Co-paremnting Code eBook

Co-parenting doesn’t have to be hard, or mean sacrificing either your family or your own happiness. It’s simply a matter of focus and choices.

Combative to Collaborative: The Co-parenting Code channels parents’ interactions with each other to what they really want…to be good parents together. But while most co-parenting books tell parents to just put the kids first even if that means sacrificing their own happiness, Combative to Collaborative shows parents how supporting each other as good parenting partners ensures they do what’s best for their kids while also achieving personal happiness. Move from anger, hurt, and loss to consideration, kindness, and cooperation.

You will discover:

  • How to diffuse a co-parent’s snarky behavior and avoid triggering their hostility
  • How to recognize your own combative behaviors and stop exhibiting them
  • How to plan for co-parenting collaboration and success
  • How to correct course when a relationship goes astray – even after many years of conflict!
