Co-Parenting Survival GuideThe Co-Parenting Survival Guide: Letting Go of Conflict After a Difficult Divorce by Elizabeth S. Thayer and Jeffrey Zimmerman.

This survival guide for divorced parents helps readers learn to navigate hot spots of hostility and conflict around communication, visitation, extra curricular activities, holidays, and new partners. It is for those divorced parents who experience conflict and difficulty in co-parenting collaboratively, but want what is best for their children in their growing years and need to learn the necessary steps to ensure that their children's lives are happy and healthy.

The authors wrote this book to teach parents how to avoid the common traps of hostile conflict, inflexibility and constant squabbling, so they can develop skills to sustain a co-parenting partnership based on love and concern for their children.
