Coparenting after my divorce was tough, but thankfully, I had Our Family Wizard (a scheduling app) to help keep my ex-husband and I on the same page about our kids. Nothing could have prepared me for life after divorce as a mother; the details of life in two homes were overwhelming. The kids struggle to remember whose day it is and we, as parents, are responsible for tracking the details of scheduling, finances, sports, and special occasions. While our marriage was over, our relationship as coparents was just beginning. Communication in those early years wasn't easy, and we argued just as much, if not more, than when we were married. I couldn't help but wonder what the purpose of getting divorced was.
And while it was messy, complicated, and stressful, I was thankful for tools like Our Family Wizard to help ease the pain. For us, a divorced couple parenting with a 50-50 custody arrangement, Our Family Wizard acted as a liaison between our two homes. In fact, it was designed specifically to "uncomplicate your communication" with your coparent - something I especially needed. Here's everything I've learned from using Our Family Wizard. Hopefully, it can help you coparent more peacefully, too.
