Coparenting International is an organization committed to bringing HOPE to divorced and remarried parents, to educators and gatekeepers, as well as to counselors, coaches and churches.

Divorce impacts children. Coparenting creates the life story to follow.

We believe that children of divorce can grow up with the opportunity to thrive, not merely survive.

Children of divorce have one heart, two homes. Coparenting International is here to bring solutions and everyday ideas to the coparenting process.

OUR VISION

We believe that a child of divorce does not have to grow up ‘broken’, but instead can be nurtured and given an opportunity to be whole as they grow into an adult.

The vision we share is that a child can be raised in two happy homes between parents who are kind and considerate, intentional and proactive, and above all are cooperative coparents. No matter the past, the future can be strong, emotionally healthy, and fulfilling for all individuals involved.

With over one million new divorces a year, the rate of divorce is growing daily! Thousands of children are affected by divorce and the lifelong interaction between their biological parents. Intentional and purposeful CoParenting can make an absolute difference in the emotional health, wholeness, and future stability of the children who are often caught in the middle of unresolved issues between their parents.
