Teaser page for coparenting communication guidelines

Coparenting can be very stressful. On this ADResolution Tuesday, I want to offer a way you can take care of your mental health when coparenting.

The Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) members are judges, lawyers, and mental health professionals dedicated to helping families work together in the best interest of the children.

Coparents working together with school aged children.

They have developed guidelines and best practices you can use when communicating with your coparent.

For example,

  • In providing information to your coparent, make sure to ACT (accurate, complete, timely).
  • If unsure if the other parent is entitled to information then follow the golden rule. Give information that you would like to have in the situation.
  • Be respectful when communication. This means no name calling, no nicknames, and no abusive language.
