From helpguide.org comes a terrific article on successful co-parenting after divorce. Unfortunately it is not always so obvious to divorced parents that they do need to play nice for the sake of their children. The kids become pawns to be won or lost. The consequence is that everyone suffers. As the article points out:
Joint custody arrangements, especially after an acrimonious split, can be exhausting and infuriating. It can be extremely difficult to get past the painful history you may have with your ex and overcome any built-up resentment. Making shared decisions, interacting with each another at drop-offs, or just speaking to a person you’d rather forget all about can seem like impossible tasks. But while it’s true that co-parenting isn’t an easy solution, it is the best way to ensure your children’s needs are met and they are able to retain close relationships with both parents.
