In this video, parents from blended families talk about shared parenting care arrangements, sometimes called co-parenting arrangements. Some families go through mediation, others use the Family Court, and sometimes there’s no formal arrangement. These parents say it helps to be flexible and plan ahead if you need to change your arrangements. They also offer tips on staying connected to children when they aren’t at home.
