In a March 2017 article New York Post writer Lauren Steussy chronicles co-parenting situations that work, where two exes get along and the family remains intact – even if the marriage doesn’t http://nypost.com/2017/03/15/i-live-with-my-ex-and-his-new-girlfriend,
Lauren quotes RDR principle Joanne Naiman as a source involved with divorcing couples, who has seen the myriad ways couples work well as co-parents once they are divorced.
As Lauren write, “A growing number of ex-couples are seeking unconventional solutions to ending their marriages, saying they want their divorce to reflect not animosity but the love they once shared and still have for their children. Some live together, vacation together and text every day.”
We see this every day in our mediaiton – and one of the goals of mediation is make co-parenting as amicable and as loving for the children as possible.
Joanne Naiman, a principle of Reasonable Divorce Resolution, was quoted in the article as saying:“It just takes conversations. It’s a process.” And that of course is what mediaiton provides – a supportive place to have conversation with your soon-to-be- ex about finding a way to parent that supports the whole family.
