Last but not least, parents, remember to keep your egos aside and co-parent as a team. Children, at no point, should feel disjointed in the arrangement. Parenting will make you take decisions keeping in mind the interests of your ex, whether you like or not. Bickering, lack of clarity, turning decisions into a competitive sport to outdo the other will only make matters worse for your child.
At the same time, it’s crucial that you maintain consistency between both of your schedules and parenting styles. Not only will it make the transition easier, but also make child-rearing easier. It will also avoid the chances for constant fights and arguments. Seeing your child happy will make your life easier.
