Co-parenting Conversations

Simple conversation starters to develop your parenting partnership.

Like every family, blended families benefit from lots of communication. Consider these conversation starters as you and your partner work together. Celebrate your daily efforts and the small successes of creating a new kind of family together!

  • How can everyone share in family responsibilities? What house rules are most important to us?
  • What one-on-one time can we set aside for each child?
  • What special traditions, rituals, or routines might we create as a new family?
  • How can we support our children’s relationships with their other parent?
  • Can we set aside time to talk as a couple about how things are going and what changes we might want to make?
