Settling a divorce isn’t the end of dealing with your ex-partner, especially when you have kids.

Certified Life + Conscious Parenting Coach Mikki Gardner guides parents like you to navigate the drama of co-parenting by being aligned with your values, setting boundaries, and focusing on what you can control.

Remember, you get to be the captain of your ship. You have the power to figure out what your co-parenting relationship looks like.

Tune in to this episode on How To Co-Parent With A New Partner In The Picture with Mikki Gardner

Key points covered in this episode: 

✔️ Guide your kids through the co-parenting relationship. They quickly learn what they see, so be an example of integrity to them. It’s going to be hard, but they’ll benefit from you living a joy-filled, stress-free life.

✔️ Move from a place of self-awareness and “response-ability”. You have full control over outcomes by being mindful of your responses. Stay clear on your values, and only partake in conversations that align with them.

✔️ Allow everyone to have their own feelings and experiences. You don’t need to fix everything. Understand your place, and respect the rules of your co-parent’s household. 

✔️ Be open to your ex’s new partner. Fighting against it will only hurt you. What matters is that they genuinely love and care for your ex and your kids. You are on the same team.

✔️ The person you divorced isn’t the same person today. People grow, learn, and change. Learn how to compartmentalize and focus on your life. They need to see you save yourself.

✔️ Show up the way you want to be treated. It’s easy to be passive-aggressive. But taking initiative is the best way to set the tone of what you want the co-parenting relationship to look like.

Mikki Gardner is a Certified Life + Conscious Parenting Coach, the host of Co-Parenting With Confidence Podcast, and a mom of 3 (her son and 2 bonus son)!
