Guidelines for Good Meetings
About the Guest
Divided or divorced parents need effective business-like meetings in order to raise kids well. Here are some guidelines from the book Two Homes, One Childhood by Robert Emery. Have a regularly scheduled time and make sure the kids can't overhear your conversations. They don't' need to be burdened by the topics which means pick up and drop off times are not a good time to talk. And keep meetings brief, polite, and to the best of your ability, positive. Good meetings are a gift to your kids.
A good co-parent meeting is worth its weight in gold.
