3 Co-Parenting Myths Debunked

Subscribe on Apple Podcasts | Spotify | YouTube

The internet is brimming with different co-parenting information, forums and groups. Still, the problem is that a lot of the content can sometimes be unmonitored. 

Those already struggling in their co-parenting relationships can get more frustrated and hopeless without getting expert help tailored for their unique situations.

In this episode, I will debunk three myths about co-parenting that make raising kids apart a big challenge for you.

Top points you’ll discover:

Myth #1: “I need to get more information from podcasts, books and other resources to get the right co-parenting tool.” This is a belief that will not serve you! It’s not that you need more information, but what you need is the correct information from trusted sources. 

Myth #2: “I am not trying hard enough to compromise.” Talk about trying to move a mountain with the tip of your finger. Staying on your side of the fence gets tricky if you are co-parenting with an ex who has narcissistic characteristics or perhaps is a sociopath. Compromise can get difficult. Instead, what to do is to reframe what give and take means to you (especially the kids) and always find a place to meet in the middle even while you have conflicting beliefs. 

Myth #3: “I need to be more firm or more loud or perhaps on the opposite side of the spectrum — to be more quiet for things to fall into place.” The co-parenting truth on this is that, unfortunately, neither will work for you. Establishing boundaries is crucial in minimizing unnecessary stress dealing with your ex. Stick primarily to the topic of your children and maintain respect to be able to work together as parents.

Ask your questions to gain clarity and access the wisdom of reliable experts on Friday, October 22nd, for the CoParenting Apart Live Zoom Event.

3 Steps To Trust Again After Betrayal

3 Steps To Trust Again After Betrayal

Going through an immense betrayal can be the most difficult thing to get over. In fact, it makes it hard for us to trust others again. Believe me. I know how it feels. My ex-husband cheated on me, and he was the last person I’d have ever thought to be capable of hurting me. It took me some time to realize that trust has to start within ourselves.

Resetting Your Vision in the Hard Times
with Kristy Carruthers

After her son was born, Kristy Carruthers had to sell off their clothing, jewelry, and belongings. She started interviewing for jobs at four weeks postpartum. After living on credit cards for a few months, she just hit the end of the rope and ended up having to sell the house to pay the credit card bills. That’s when the mind shift happened. I said to myself, ‘You know what? This can never happen again. This is not acceptable.'”

What Divorce Taught Me About Love, Marriage, and Relationships

When I was married, divorce was never on my mind.

It never occurred to me that it had to be something I should learn about.

Fast forward to today, it continues to be that gift that keeps on giving. It has taught me about myself more than I ever knew.

Even though I’ve undergone therapy, I still believe that what I’ve endured and experienced post-divorce unraveled five lessons that I never would’ve discovered on my own.
