coParenting Tip: Implement Tasks
As you work as a coParent to strengthen your relationship with your child, also consider the tasks that you can perform alone (self-regulated parenting) and those it is best for both parents to work out (coordinated parenting).
The responsibility of the parents to perform some of these tasks may be designated by a court ordered parenting plan. Implementation of coordinated parenting should be your goal if that is required in your court-ordered plan. If the coParent is highly uncooperative, concentrate on the self-regulated tasks at first. If you detect over time that your self-centered coParenting skills are having some positive influence over the coParent, start working on incorporating more of the coordinated tasks into your parenting goals.
