How co-parents can work together:
· Keep communication open. Answer all forms of communication (phone calls, texts, emails, etc.) with your co-parent in a timely manner.
· Don’t keep score.
· Enter each conversation with finding a solution together as your goal.
· Stay socially connected while physically distanced. Schedule virtual visits between your co-parent and your child. Set a time and make the child available for video calls.
· Once this crisis is over, set aside extra time so that the non-custodial parent and child can become comfortable together again.
