Surrey, BC – Karen L. Kristjanson is the author of Co-Parenting From the Inside Out: Voices of Moms and Dads, which brings together real life co-parenting stories to inspire separated parents and help them understand co-parenting better, offering practical tips and tools that directly benefit families.
Co-Parenting from the Inside Out is a collection of 35 stories with real moms and dads in diverse circumstances, showing them making choices, sometimes struggling, and often growing. Their stories offer insights into wise decision-making, as well as practical strategies that strengthen families.
The answer to how to co-parent, says Kristjanson, depends on who you are, who your partner is, how many kids you have, what their ages are. Your physical health, your mental health, your financial health, and your level of self-management skills like emotional awareness will determine how well you co-parent, and the same thing goes for your ex-partner
“If you want to co-parent, you're saying, ‘It'll be better for our kids if they have both of us in their lives,’ but sometimes that means you need to work cooperatively with somebody you’re more angry with than anyone in the world,’” says Kristjanson.
While pain exists in most stories, there is also hope. Co-parents often feel that they have become more confident, compassionate, and parent better than ever before.
Karen also offers co-parenting coaching through her coaching practice Beyond Limits Coaching.
Co-Parenting From the Inside Out: Voices of Moms and Dads is available on Amazon.
