Create your own Co-Parenting Plan
Each individual is unique. Plans must take into account the uniqueness of each child and parent, especially when they share a special needs child, when there are boundary issues, or when a parent has a problematic behavior, suffers from a mental illness, or substance abuse disorder.
Before entering negotiations with the other parent, each parent must determine what parenting arrangements will work for the parents and be in their children’s best interest. When parents typically use problem solving discussions to resolve conflicts, a parenting plan may include general guidelines that leave room for accommodations to the changing needs of the child and the households. When parents have difficulty communicating with each other and experience repetitive conflicts, a parenting plan must clearly define, with specific details, each parent’s responsibility to the child and to the other parent during their parenting time and transitions of the child from one parent to the other.
