Both parents must commit to raising a child after a divorce

For parents in Florida and throughout the country, the key to raising a child after a divorce is for parents to communicate well and respect the other person in the child's life. Parents should also respect the fact that the child needs both parents in his or her life.

Maintaining a focus on the children can serve as motivation to work through disagreements as they arise. Disagreements may involve being flexible to make a parenting plan or determining when a parent is within his or her rights to attend events outside of the approved visitation schedule. Ideally, decisions as to how parents interact with their children will be made based on what is best for the children.

When children see their parents being civil around each other, it can help with their emotional well-being. However, if parents bicker or talk badly about each other around a child, that child may start to believe that those things are true. This can be made worse if a parent is left out of a child's life. Ultimately, these actions can cloud their perception of that parent and put a strain on the relationship between the two.

If parents are going through a dispute, it may be a good idea to work with someone who can help resolve family law issues. This person may be able to help parents develop solutions to the problem that are in the child's best interest. An attorney may suggest a therapist or other professional who may be able to help parents get past a dispute.
