Most divorced couples lack great communication skills, which makes co parenting much harder than it needs to be. Healthy communication with your ex creates a peaceful environment for your children, and also sets a great example for them that they will model when they grow up.


My 15 tips for better communication with your ex are

  1. Never use the kids as a go between
  2. Never argue in front of the kids
  3. Learn to pick and choose your battles
  4. Avoid being sarcastic, disrespectful, and rude
  5. Set boundaries, and stick to them
  6. Don’t bring up the past when communicating
  7. Practice empathy
  8. Treat your ex the way you want to be treated
  9. Put your children first
  10. Texting and email should be your chosen method of communication
  11. Choose your words carefully
  12. Monitor your tone
  13. Avoid topics that will trigger your ex
  14. Learn to listen
  15. Learn to compromise
