Empowered co-parenting: How to develop a mindful approach with Mikki Gardener
Regardless of how uncooperative your co-parent may be, you have a choice in how you experience the co-parenting relationship, according to conscious parenting coach Mikki Gardener.
Mikki recently appeared on Divorcing Well and told Leanne Townsend that establishing a positive co-parenting dynamic can be challenging when there’s a history of pain, anger and trauma.
When parents embrace conscious co-parenting, it signifies a mindful approach where decisions are made intentionally, with a clear understanding of their ‘what’ and ‘why’, she explained.
The “three A’s” strategy could set parents up for success: awareness, agency, and aligned action.
Learning how to be more aware and present, Mikki said, is the greatest skill parents could learn for themselves and to teach children.
From navigating high-conflict dynamics to more amicable situations, this podcast is essential listening for divorcing parents seeking effective co-parenting insights.
