Children’s ability to adjust to life after divorce is directly linked to their parents ability to minimize conflict. If children constantly see their parents fighting they will suffer as a result of it.

Therapists will tell you that the best approach parents can take to minimize conflict is through cooperative parenting. So what is is cooperative parenting?
