Co-Parenting Under One Roof: 6 Tips to Make it Work - Part Two - from Parenting Expert, Christina McGhee on Divorce & Beyond #217

In this episode, Part Two of Two, America's Favorite Parenting Expert, Christina McGhee returns to continue her talk with Susan Guthrie about the sometimes awkward and often difficult experience of living together and co-parenting in the same home while going through a divorce.

Divorce is stressful for every member of the family and when financial or personal factors result in the family continuing to reside in one home together while the process plays out, the transition to separate parenting can be especially difficult for both the parents, as well as their children.  Christina McGhee, author of Parenting Apart and co-parenting coach, works with parents and families to adjust to the transitions and to learn to co-parent in a way that meets the needs of children.  Christina shares 6 essential tips for parents to consider and implement in order to make the co-parenting work, even when it's hard when together in the same space.  In addition, Christina shares the two major upsides for your family that can come from this experience!

In Part Two, Christina continues with her final tips and advice for making the transition from parenting to co-parenting while still under one roof in a healthy and thoughtful fashion for your family!

The film Split: A Divorce Survival Guide for Kids (and their Parents) can be viewed here:  https://www.brunofilms.com/split

Split is a deeply personal film made in collaboration with children aged 6-12, exploring the often frightening and always life altering separation of their parents.

Split gives us the children's perspective on divorce... no adults, no experts… just kids speaking the powerful truth of what is on their minds and in their hearts. Their wisdom, candor, and humor will give courage to other children, and encourage parents to make better choices as they move through divorce.
