Parenting Goals

mom and dad looking at daughterThe following goals will help you focus on the needs of your children and NOT on your conflict with the other parent.

 

  • We will shield our children from conflict

 

  • We will not use our children as messengers or confidants

 

  • We will not criticize the other parent in front of the children or within earshot of the children.

 

  • We will nurture our children’s love for both of us.

 

  • We will agree beforehand exactly what information will be shared with the children.

 

  • We will willingly share information about our children’s wellbeing such as schoolwork, extra curricular activities, and doctor’s appointments.

 

  • We will reassure our children that they will always have two parents that love them and the failure of our marriage is in no way a result of anything they have done or said.

 

  • We will encourage our children to express their feelings but we, as the parents, will make the decisions.
