If your custody arrangement or court-order modification requires consistent co-parenting, here are six ways to make the back-and-forth schedules easier on everyone:
1. Know your triggers
What triggers your anger or annoyance with the other parent? Late pick-ups? Lack of discipline in the other parent’s house? Fed up with clothes and belongings being lost or frustrated by the eye roll? Once you have worked out what sets you off, you can be mindful of your response when faced with these triggers and make a conscious and positive choice to respond in a calm and measured way.
