Find the method of communication that works best for both of you; whether it’s through texting, calling, or meeting in-person, make sure you and your co-parent communicate consistently to ensure that you’re both on the same page. Remember, try your best to keep a positive mindset and set the focus of your communication on your kids. This can help you and your co-parent work together effectively and cordially even if you may be experiencing some conflict.
When you and your co-parent communicate calmly and effectively, you are modeling healthy communication to your kids and showing them how to treat others with respect and dignity!
