5. Try to make decisions together about your children.
6. Come up with common rules and expectations so that your kids cannot play off each of you.

8. Support your children’s love of the other parent.
9. Seek co-parenting counseling.
10. Understand your rights and your obligations as a parent and your role with your child and with the other parent. Understand all dispute resolution options so you make an informed decision about how you may seek to reach a determination on parenting decisions that the two of you cannot decide on your own.
