It’s tough enough being a parent this days, but when you add in the layer of co-parenting with your children’s other parent, it can become complicated – the good news is, it doesn’t need to be.

Our guest, Dr. Isolina Ricci, Ph.D., is the author of the enduring classic for parents Mom's House, Dad's House, Mom's House, Dad's House for KIDS, and the newly released The CoParenting Toolkit. She is an internationally renowned licensed family therapist, educator, and mediator whose work has inspired and supported two generations of parents. Many of her pioneering concepts such as "Parenting Plans," the "business-like" approach for managing conflict and communications, better words to replace legal terms like "custody" and "visitation," have all become accepted standards.

In this episode of The Smart Divorce we discuss how to co-parent without conflict, do what’s in your children’s best interest and more.

  • The 3 lane Co-Parenting Highway
  • How parents can build on their strengths
  • “The Miserable Middle”
  • Co-Parenting guidelines
