You and your children’s other parent want to raise them well, and you don’t want to continue having arguments that make it hard to get along and get things done. Unfortunately, no matter how much you seem to try, you and the other parent still get into verbal altercations regularly.
You’re tired of having your children see you get upset with the other parent. You don’t want to keep having arguments over things the other parent forgot about or to have to worry about them accusing you of something you never said.
One of the options you might want to try is using a coparenting app. A coparenting app can be a great way to work together. It keeps all of your conversations digital, your schedule easily available and makes it much simpler to stay organized.
Better organization can cut down on complaints
The nice thing about a coparenting app is that you can use it for scheduling and discussions about problems that arise. Use the texting feature to talk to each other about how you’re handing a problem at school, or update the schedule to reflect a date you’ve switched custody due to a work conflict.
By keeping your custody issues defined in this way, you can make it simpler to stay on the same “side,” which is the side of doing what is best for your children and reducing conflict overall.
What can you do if the other parent is causing problems and doesn’t want to communicate?
It might be reasonable to talk to your attorney about heading back to court to figure out how to handle problems with communication. The court may order a court-monitored program that you can both use to communicate, which might be a good idea if the other parent is aggressive or making claims that aren’t true.
There are solutions to coparenting problems. If you’re frustrated with your coparenting situation, talk to your ex-spouse about court-monitored programs or coparenting apps and see what they think. You may both be able to benefit from using this kind of system to protect yourselves and open better lines of communication in the future.
