9. Be Positive Negotiating the terms of your divorce will likely bring up conflicting emotions. It is very useful to release negative feelings you may be harboring toward your ex. Letting go of anger and hatred will heal you, make co-parenting easier, and help your children as they deal with their own emotions about the situation.
10. Compromise While your custody arrangement may well provide a framework for sharing time with your child, life happens and sometimes plans change. If you give up your Thanksgiving this year so junior can spend it at his other grandma’s house, you’ll have less trouble getting that extra time at Christmas that you really wanted.
