You and your child’s other parent may have decided to parent in different households for a myriad of reasons. It is possible that tensions exist between you both. It is also possible that your child custody arrangements are proving to be quite challenging because your co-parent is difficult to work with. Thankfully, there are several things that you can do to make your situation less stressful for you and your child, even if your co-parent has no intention of changing his or her approach right now.
First, it is important to accept the fact that you have a great deal of control over how you behave and very little control over how your co-parent behaves. Starting from a place of acceptance and empowerment related to your own capacity for healthy behaviors will hopefully help you achieve much-needed peace about your current child custody situation.
