As you know, we welcome all parents to Dad Chats, and this week we decided to focus on single parents. Although… that led to a discussion – are you a single parent, or a co-parent? What’s the difference, and where do you fit in!?
We know not all of our amazing dad’s are with their kids full time, so this week we delved into single parents and co-parenting. We chatted all about the up’s and down’s of the single parent life. From coping mechanisms, to helping the kids adjust to separated households. we delved into it all.
It was great to hear from the single / co-parents in our community, and we are so thankful to them all for their honesty in this great chat. Another unmissable Dad Chats Live!
