The last blog post discussed resilience and how it can help you put your differences aside and create a positive co-parenting relationship with your ex-spouse. This post will continue to discuss the important tips for putting differences aside for the sake or your child(ren).
Here are a few suggestions:
Consider your self-esteem and your strengths as a person: It is amazing how much of your co-parenting relationship revolves around you and your strengths, weaknesses, and coping skills. When you can get yourself to a good place and shed the hurt and anger, it can be easier to move forward. Anger and resentment can be detrimental to a co-parenting relationship. Being aware of what you are good at can help to build confidence within yourself. This in turn can help your relationship with your co-parent. Believe in yourself and your abilities and consider the skills you have used to cope with challenging situations in the past and use those skills when interacting with your co-parent. Remember to give yourself credit for making positive changes.
