Holidays are a time of giving, tradition, and spending time with family. When you are co-parenting during these times, an unwilling co-parent can make things stressful. Rebekkah J. Mouw with Harris Law & Co., gives you 3 ways to “Level-Up” your co-parenting traditions this holiday season with her newest article.
The need to Level-Up is simple: a child functions best in an emotionally healthy environment. In a time so focused on giving and family, the best gift you can give your child is a united front. Show your child that they are the single most important part of the co-parenting relationship.
Parents may only be comfortable with compromising time with the other parent. Joint efforts at gift giving or giving back is a great place to come together as co-parents. Or, if you are feeling really comfortable, coming together as whole blended families for a meal or holiday festival.
If your co-parent is not on the same page, you can still model healthy behavior for your child. Set healthy boundaries, enforce them, and still try to level-up on your end. This is the best way to model healthy co-parenting for your child.
