Tips for parenting after a divorce

Parents in Georgia and throughout the country will need to raise their children even after their marriages end. This generally means working together to make sure co-parenting goes as smoothly as possible. When kids see that their parents can put up a unified front, they are less likely to try to pit them against each other. This could limit the opportunities that a child has to act out in an attempt to get their way.

Children should be held to the same standards after a divorce as they were before the divorce. Ideally, parents will not go easy on their sons or daughters just because they feel guilty about getting divorced. It is also important to not let kids do what they want because a parent is too tired to enforce the rules.

Consistency can help a child feel more secure and make it easier to be an effective parent in the long run. Children may feel insecure when a parent starts dating again. Therefore, parents should be sure to invest more time and energy into making the child feel more secure. It is rarely a good idea to introduce a child to a new romantic partner less than six months into the relationship.

The parent-child relationship is one that a court seeks to protect after a divorce. Therefore, both parents may be allowed custody or visitation rights after a marriage comes to an end. Parents who are seeking such rights may want to work with an attorney to determine how to obtain them. This may be done by supplying a judge with statements from friends or the child's teacher describing how well a parent provides for the child's emotional and other needs.
