Co-parenting after a separation or divorce is rarely easy. These shared custody tips can help give your children the stability, security, and close relationships with both parents that they need.
What is co-parenting?
Unless your family has faced serious issues such as domestic violence or substance abuse, co-parenting—having both parents play an active role in their children’s daily lives—is the best way to ensure that all your kids’ needs are met and enable them to retain close relationships with both parents. The quality of the relationship between co-parents can also have a strong influence on the mental and emotional well-being of children, and the incidence of anxiety and depression. Of course, putting aside relationship issues, especially after an acrimonious split, to co-parent agreeably is sometimes easier said than done
actress Uma Thurman
and her ex-fiancé, financier Arpad Busson,
finally settled their explosive, high-profile custody dispute over their 3-year old daughter Luna.
Page Six reports the two reached a settlement in a New York court on Thursday.
The gossip section to the New York Post reported that Thurman blew kisses at reporters assembling at the courthouse.
Recall, last month, she got lots of press for yelling at the press for covering the custody case.
“Everybody compromised a bit,” Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Matthew Cooper said about the settlement. “I think it was all done to make one person happy and that one person is Luna.”
Thurman gave a thumbs up to reporters as she left the courthouse, signaling that the yet-to-be-revealed terms were agreeable to her.
Busson sued her in 2014 to get more time to see his daughter.
Thurman has two other children with ex hubby Ethan Hawke: 17-year old daughter Maya, 17, and 13-year old son Levon.
Busson has two sons with ex-girlfriend, supermodel Elle Macpherson: 17-year old Flynn, 17, and 12-year old Cy.
