According to family researchers, the term “coparenting” refers to the support that adults provide for one another in the raising of children for whom they share responsibility (McHale 1995). Effective coparenting, according to the family theorist/therapist Salvador Minuchin, are relationships that assure that the children are receiving adequate care, control and nourishing, as defined by prevailing cultural mores.

In reality, coparenting, and what leads up to it, can look like many things. Maybe you are thinking about divorce, but staying right where you are because of your children. Or, maybe you’re dealing with an angry teen who won’t express his feelings. Or is your daughter openly blaming you for destroying the family? Are you trying to coparent with a narcissist? What are the warning signs for that, and everything else? How do you survive divorce and still be that Force Majeure you know your kids need?

Or, if you prefer the company of women in a guided journey parenting and coparenting through divorce, consider our virtual online class, Gaia’s Group.

Or, reach out to explore what personalized support would mean for you. As mothers, and women, we often seek support only after we’ve tended to those we love. Going through divorce requires we shift that paradigm and open ourselves to receiving.
