Co-parenting in a time of social distancing

Recommended Posts

The article seemed centered on situations where one parent has custody and the other has scheduled visitation, with a focus on whether the visitation should continue to occur. My situation, and a lot of coparents I know, are in more of a 50-50 situation where each has a full and equal role in parenting. In that dynamic, eliminating visitation is less likely an outcome.

But, I think the article did raise the interesting point of how the coparent's social interactions affect you. Kids going back and forth effectively join the households into one exposure group. So, never leaving the house isn't particularly effective if the other coparent is out socializing. To me, that's the big challenge of effective coparenting, to me--making joint decisions and continuing to be dependent on the behavior of the person with whom a relationship ended.
