A Stepmom’s Guide to Co-Parenting


“When one or even two new stepparents enter the mix, what was once a co-parenting relationship might quickly become a co-parenting entourage. In short, incorporating a new partner into an existing co-parenting relationship is never a neutral undertaking. Whether the co-parents have settled into an agreeable arrangement or are constantly at each other’s throats, the addition of a stepparent has the potential to significantly change the current stepfamily landscape.” —Trisha Ladogna

Co-parenting is complicated business. How do you raise well-adjusted kids when the other house won’t cooperate? Does parallel parenting make sense in your situation?
