What is the difference between coParenting and Parallel Parenting?

Parallel parenting indicates that parents may not be aligned with how they raise their children and parent separately vs coParenting where you align parenting.

Parallel parenting indicates that the parents may not be aligned with how they raise their children and so the kids experience is different when they are with each parent. This is often the case with high conflict families. Parallel parenting often indicates that parents remain disengaged from each other, separately deciding the logistics of routine, day-to-day parenting. Parallel parenting may include different rules and expectations at each parent’s home which can increase confusion among kids, especially younger kids.
