The Minds Journal invited me to talk about co-parenting during and after divorce with an international audience. I share basic information about divorce statistics, and the keys to successful co-parenting, as well as why it is vital to your children that you and your partner find a way to end the conflict and “love your kids more than you hate your ex.” I talk about specific steps you can take to ease into co-parenting, and how to best support your children.

“With her compassion, wisdom, extensive experience with divorcing families,  Ann Buscho is a prominent blogger whose talent as a writer is wired into her DNA (she is the daughter of a prominent novelist). Dr. Buscho is now sharing with a much larger audience her exceptional knowledge of how to succeed at the child-friendly shared custody arrangement known as “birdnesting” or “nesting.”  If you know any families whose parents are divorcing, you’ll be doing the entire family a huge favor by gifting them this practical, intelligent, and very readable book.”
