Unfortunately, some relationships cannot be saved. As a matter of fact, at least 50% of marriages will not survive in the United States. This does not mean that the entire family needs to be destroyed in the process or that the lives of the children have to become a hardship. The choice to use your children as a weapon, is yours, and it is my hope that this is a decision that you decide against. Children to not want their parents to get a divorce, nor do they want to have their lives disruptive and interrupted. Using children as pawns in the battle for power is a mistake that too many separating adults make. I caution against this and its lasting effects on your children.
The goal of co-parenting therapy is to protect the children at all costs. This means moving to a more intellectualized place in the relationship with your spouse. Choosing to act with mindfulness and mature over aggression and hostility. Many divorces begin amicably, but almost all of them become contentious as the process continues. Custody issues and financial liabilities destroy the communication and hurt feelings and resentments begin to color the interactions. These behaviors become translated to the children in the form of fighting, speaking badly about the other parent, or simply losing patience when the child is in your care. Do not become a statistic! Do not make your children pay for your relationship issues! I will teach you to navigate this very difficult time and move through it with maturity.
Most co-parenting therapy session are an hour and only last for about a month. When both partners commit to “keeping the children safe” and understand the best practices, change occurs quickly. I believe this is one of the best investments you can make for your child’s life. Children can survive divorce with few scars, if the parents keep them at the forefront of their minds and hearts.
