Virtually 50% of marriages end in divorce, while 75% of second marriages fail.
Whenever mankind strays from God’s ideal for the family, it usually ends up providing a playground for Satan. This can result in innocent people being adversely affected most.
Most often those innocent people are children.
The playground, of course, is divorce itself.
When we talk about the subject of divorce, we’re talking about a subject that effects a lot of people today—arguably more than ever. So, how can parents succeed in parenting when their kids share two different homes?
What is Co-Parenting
One solution for the struggle of single parent homes is Co-Parenting.
Parents, though divorced, still need to work together as much as possible to develop a stable roadmap for Junior’s life.
Co-Parenting provides solutions for families raising kids between two homes. Essentially each parent needs to commit to setting aside their minor differences to raise their child, while doing their best to agree on what Scripture says concerning the essentials. Compromising methods without compromising principles is key. Making Christ the arbiter in all decisions and policies is preeminent.
This episode will give you practical steps for working with your ex to provide a safe environment for your kids and to minimize the damage that could potentially be done to a child effected by divorce.
