I'm personally a big fan of this book:

The Co-Parenting Handbook

https://www.amazon.com/Co-Parenting-Handbook-Well-Adjusted-Resilient-Separation/dp/1632171465/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1524856439&sr=8-3

It tends to assume both people are well-intentioned and doing their best. For individuals who want to do their best with a more challenging co-parent, I've heard good things about this book:

Co-Parenting with a toxic ex

https://www.amazon.com/Co-parenting-Toxic-Ex-Ex-Spouse-Against/dp/1608829588/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1524856439&sr=8-5

I found a lot of the examples on this site helpful when thinking about potential custody schedules and things we should agree on for a co-parenting plan (navigation is on the left):

https://www.custodyxchange.com/examples/

I didn't end up using the software, as we just use a shared Google calendar which integrates easily with other calendars.

Not coparenting, but my kids' school counselor recommended this book:

https://www.amazon.com/Divorce-Not-End-World-Coping/dp/1582462410/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1541474696&sr=8-5&keywords=divorce+book+for+kids

It's advice for kids, written by two siblings of divorced parents. Addresses all the types of stuff kids are likely to worry about--"guilt, anger, fear, adjusting to different rules in different houses, dealing with special occasions like birthdays, adapting to stepparents and blended families, and much more".

My daughter devoured it. I'm not sure she learned so much new, as felt that camaraderie of feeling like she was reading about herself. She frequently said, "that's exactly what I've thought!" when reading.

A couple more apps I've come across:

Alimentor

It's focus is on calendaring. It specifically seems to have strong features for tracking where the kids actually spend their time in addition to the planned agreement. Is very highly reviewed in the App Store.

Truece

Is more of a do-it-all. Communications, expenses, calendar, and time.

Hey Everyone,

I understand this is a bit off topic from this post but just wanting to see see if anyone would be open to sharing their co-parenting experience and willing to help others by working together with us to build a co-parenting solution that actually works.

If you would be interested in helping and have a spare 2 minutes, the below survey link contains 3 questions and asks for basic customer details. It takes less than 2 mins to complete and would be amazing for any feedback.

Copy and paste this link into your browser to go to the survey - goo.gl/forms/fkJ1HDNuzeY0A9YE2

Thanks
