On this month's show episode, we discuss the hard cases, the tough nuts to crack, the brick walls...you get the idea. When you've tried to communicate and cooperate with your ex to no avail, or when substance abuse, mental illness, or domestic violence is a factor in your co-parenting situation, you may feel powerless to protect your children from the emotional distress and other consequences relaed to your ex's behavior. Co-parenting may seem impossible.
But the good news is you can still make a positive difference in your children's lives. Our guests are three co-parents, Friends of Co-Parenting 101 Carolyn Edgar, Pauline Gaines, and Eric @real_ATLDAD) who are in the co-parenting trenches, parenting under some difficult circumstances. They'll share their stories with you, and we'll share some strategies for tackling your toughest co-parenting challenges.

Parenting children is one of the most, if not the most important job in the world. No matter what the circumstances, parenting comes with its ups and downs. What can make the task even more challenging is when the two people parenting are seperated, divorced or simply do not like one another. Join host Cherise Taylor as she discusses 7 ways for parents to successfully co-parent without putting the child in the middle.
Co-parenting after a divorce, even an amicable divorce, is difficult at best. How do two people who don't like each other any more learn to work together? Parenting with someone you love is hard, so how much harder is it with someone you don't care for anymore? How do you overcome the challenges and focus on the child?
Join me and my guests, Barbara Lamsens and Jennifer Acker from the Parenting Center in Fort Worth. We'll be talking about co-parenting and how it is different, what the children think throughout the experience, and how to know when you might need some training in co-parenting skills.

This week’s show features our interview with Pat Ryan Lampl, Tish Rabe, and Ann Blumenthal Jacobs, authors of LOVE FOR GROWN-UPS: The Garter Brides' Guide to Marrying For Life When You've Already Got a Life. Pat, Tish, and Ann wrote Love for Grown-Ups to inspire the millions of unmarried American women looking for love later in life, and for those are already in blended families.This guide is full of tried-and-true advice from women who “found lasting love and happiness after their 35th birthdays had come…and gone.” And you know we want to talk about the joys and challenges that come when these “garter brides” marry co-parenting dads. So join us for a lively chat about dating and marrying while co-parenting. Topics include introducing significant others to your children; weddings; and of course, His Ex. (Wonder why they’re called “The Garter Brides”? Watch here and find out.)
Not all parents can manage a co-parenting relationship in which there is a true coordinated parenting partnership. But, that doesn't mean that parents can't still find a peaceful co-existence along the co-parenting continuum that allows their children to thrive...and keeps them out of one another's paths. This week we'll talk about parallel parenting with our guest, Kerri Wall, founder of the blog, Off the Wall. Through her site, Keri shares the challenges, victories and insights she experiences in her own parallel parenting relationship with her son's father. Join us for a discussion about a parenting arrangement that often works well for many parents who are better off keeping their distance from one another to minimize the impact their conflict could have on the children they love.
Our guests, co-parents Alison DeNio and Wes Hamilton, are a former couple and co-creators of "The Divorce Revolution," a theatrical play based on the experiences of several divorced couples as they travel through life as divorced parents and finally discover the possibilities in co-parenting. Wes and Alison created and perform this play for communities in hopes of sparking conversation and introducing new perspectives on post-divorce family life.
