Glenda Lux, a Registered Psychologist is on the show today to talk about the good, the bad and the really bad aspects of co-parenting.
Glenda’s extensive experience in co-parenting counselling, parent coordination, parental fitness evaluations and litigation support gives her a unique insight into what can go wrong and what can go right with coparenting.
In this episode we dissect what good co-parenting looks like, what some of the first steps should be when co-parenting communication breaks down and what to do when co-parenting just isn’t going to work.
Glenda believes that successful co-parenting is about both parents being stakeholders in the safety and well-being of their child.
