From the "Best of DSR" series comes Co-Parenting Peacefully for Your Children.  This has been one of the most listened to programs on DSR.

If you’ve decided to separate or get a divorce and have children, your next important decision should be about co-parenting.  Divorce may be the end of a marriage, but it is not the end of the family.  People who separate but continue to work cooperatively as parents give their children the best chances for a smooth adjustment to living in two separate households and continued growth.

Psychologist, Dr. Larry Friedberg shows us ways to communicate with your ex without hostility for the good of your children.

Learn how to:

  • Be respectful of your ex spouse.
  • Resolve conflicts and discuss major issues privately, not in front of the children.
  • Not confide, complain or grumble about your ex to your kids – you need family, friends or a therapist for that role.
  • Not use our kids as messengers between you and the other parent.
  • Assure our kids that both parents will listen to feelings and address needs cooperatively.
