High Conflict Co-Parenting Tips With Divorce Support Coach Lisa McGregor
If you have kids, divorce doesn't mean saying goodbye to your ex. Navigating co-parenting can be tricky in the best of situations, but if you're in a high-conflict dynamic it can feel like an endless minefield.
Check out Divide & Thrive's Alex Beattie's conversation with divorce support coach Lisa McGregor (@theunplannedchapter on TikTok and IG) about how to navigate high conflict co-parenting dynamics.
The conversation is packed with tips & tools to help you navigate high conflict co-parenting with ease. Some highlights include:
- Focus on what is in your control
- Create a shared calendar and file so all information is in one place that both parents can access, limiting your need to communicate
- If seeing your ex's name is triggering, consider changing their contact name in your phone to identify them only as your child's parent parent - "Lisa's Dad" or "Lisa's Mom"
- Use the BIFF method when communicating: Brief, informative, firm, friendly
- And more!
