Celebrity Couple Demonstrates the Value of Co-Parenting
When a divorced couple decides to continue to work together for the sake of the children, this is called co-parenting. It is a very healthy arrangement for the upbringing of children, since both parents agree to work together for the benefit of the child. In some cases it can be even healthier than the parents remaining together because the parents can turn their attention entirely on the child.

A celebrity couple just announced their co-parenting arrangement after they agreed to split. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have agreed to co-parent. Their arrangement is a little unusual in that they’ll remain on the same property, but they will have separate living quarters. This has brought a lot of attention to the concept of co-parenting.

Co-parenting works best when both parents agree to set aside their personal differences and work together for the sake of the children. This can be difficult if the divorce was bitter. It it also a lot of work. Schedules have to be coordinated and finances balanced between the parties so they feel that it is a fair arrangement. Custody battles can also be problematic.
