coparently is an online calendar and communication tool that provides parents with a simple way to organize and manage shared parenting.
We built coparently because we passionately believe that children need and deserve to have a loving relationship with both parents, even if their parents aren't together anymore. We also get that it's a complete nightmare trying to coordinate busy family life from separate homes – even with the best co-parenting relationship in the world!
Our mission is to give you the tools you need to successfully organize and manage your shared parenting arrangements while simultaneously putting the needs of your children first. We seek to understand any problems our users are facing and do everything we can to solve those problems. We are constantly upgrading our service and adding features you've requested. We are here to meet your needs and provide the most effective tools to support you in being the best co-parent you can be.
We want to help parents to raise healthy, happy children after divorce or separation. We advocate for parents to co-parent the coparently way. To be coparently is to always focus on the best interests of your child: to never ask children to choose sides, to protect them from conflict and give them the chance to have a loving relationship with both parents.
Regardless of the circumstances that led to your co-parenting situation, you're here and responsible for doing the best you can to make sure your children are raised in a healthy and stable environment.
Relationships never really end when there are children involved and this can be daunting for some. The most important thought to keep in mind is that you are making this effort not for yourself, but for your child.
It's a structured environment, a set of guidelines, and a way to collaborate with the other parent in your child's life to give your child the home and childhood that they deserve.
Studies show that successful co-parenting results in a number of benefits for the children involved. Often children believe that they did something wrong when their parents separate and that it's somehow their fault. By presenting a united front for your children, they are not left wondering what they did or why one parent doesn't love them enough to be involved in their life anymore. In a successful co-parenting relationship, the parent who has moved is still a very large part of the child's life, the parents still have a relationship for the sake of the child, and the child knows that either of the parents will be there in a heartbeat if needed.
Other benefits for children include greater feelings of stability, less pressure to meet the emotional and social needs of their parents, a stronger bond with each parent, and minimal feelings of being torn between the two parents.
There are a few guidelines and tips coparently suggests to help co-parents start on the right foot.
These guidelines aren't designed to make your life easier. They're proven ways to ensure your child adapts positively to your separation and can improve their overall long-term emotional well-being.
Now that you have decided to do everything in your power to provide a loving and stable environment for your child, it's time to discuss a few more requirements of successful co-parenting and valuable tools that are available to help you manage the hectic life of a child with separated parents.
Yes, co-parenting is far from easy. But you're not doing it for yourself. You do it for the child you vowed to love, nurture, protect, and develop into a healthy adult. It can be difficult to establish strict and business-like guidelines regarding the future upbringing of your children, but by being professional – and taking it one step at a time – you will find that putting your children first will create much more happiness for each of you throughout the years to come.
The benefits of co-parenting are priceless; children have a much healthier relationship with each parent and remain un-plagued by the stress of arguments, separation, and having to choose sides.
To help with the hectic schedules, communication, decision making, and finances of co-parenting, coparently has developed tools designed to create a child-centric and professional relationship between parents, so that the children involved get the attention, love, and support that they deserve.
