Parenting mistakes to avoid after divorce

When you get divorced, you are free from sharing your life with your ex. Unfortunately, parents still need to try and get along with each other when it comes to raising their children.

Parenting with your ex after divorce can seem like the most difficult task in your life, but does it have to be? Parents make many mistakes after divorce when trying to navigate co-parenting. Being aware of some of the most common mistakes parents make when co-parenting can help you avoid these issues in the future.

Divorced parents fight over many things. A recent article about common parenting mistakes after divorce can help you understand what not to do when co-parenting:

  • The child’s belongings and where they are located. You can try to split your child’s toys evenly so each parent has some toys and other belongings available. You can also come up with an arrangement to find the best way transfer your child’s belongings between your homes.
  • Making your child decide who to stay with. This can put a lot of stress on your child and make them choose between both parents. Instead, talk to your child to see if he or she wants to actually make the decision or if other ways to determining these situations should be used.
  • Talking bad about the other parent. This is a very common mistake parents make. This is harmful for you and your children. You need to be careful what you say around your children to protect your relationship as well as your ex’s relationship with them.
  • Using your child to talk to your ex. Even though it can be hard to talk to your ex, it is important to not put your child between the two of you. Instead, figure out the best way to communicate with your ex (phone, text or email) to keep your children out of it.

When it feels impossible to get along with your ex and manage taking care of your children, remember what is important: your kids. Putting your children’s best interests first is one of the best things you can do for your children and for yourself.
