3 ways to de-stress talking with the other parent

  • If you can't enjoy your child's birthday because making arrangements with their other parent brings up too much old stuff... If you feel uneasy when you receive a text from the other parent (that’s before you even saw what it is about)...

  • If you are feeling small and quiet at the handover because it is just so uncomfortable...

Don’t settle. Your time is precious. Your time with your children is precious. Your head-space is precious. How you feel about yourself when you talk with your ex is important.

Think of finding a way to communicate comfortably with your ex as a kind and loving act of self care. A handy transferable skill. Your legacy for your children. Anything works, as long as you don’t settle for anything less than comfortable-ish. Here is some inspiration and support to help you make a start: 3 simple ways to de-stress discussing parenting with your ex. It covers:

  • Looking after yourself when you are triggered

  • Why it is important to slow down and how you can do it

  • Signs that it is time to take a break from that particular conversation

Treat it as a thinking space, when you hear an idea that fits your situation - pause the recording and get implementing. I’d love to hear what you discover. P.s. If you'd rather simply talk it through with me in a consultation - head to my calendar to find a time that works for you.
