Parenting is definitely not without its challenges as most Arizona parents can attest. If you're getting divorced, you may encounter some problematic issues regarding child custody or finances having to do with your kids. Preparing a co-parenting plan can be stressful as well, especially if you and your spouse disagree on certain things. Your divorce doesn't necessarily have to ruin your family life. There are several ways to reduce stress in a shared custody situation.
It's crucial for both parents to be willing to cooperate and work as a team. You may no longer reside in the same household but you will always have your children in common with your ex, so the more you work together to help them adapt to their new lifestyle, the less stressful your co-parenting arrangement may be.
