Navigating Guilt: Embracing Your Role as a 50/50 Co-Parent

Season #1

In this episode of Intentional Divorce Insights, host Leah Hadley speaks with guest Julia Hoffman, a specialist in transforming the stigma around divorce into a blueprint for family success. Julia shares her expertise in navigating divorce and co-parenting issues, drawing from both her professional background in marriage and family therapy and her personal experience as a child of divorce and a co-parent herself.

Key Topics Discussed:

- Julia discusses the importance of happy co-parenting and how she, her wife, and their children's father and stepmother co-parent effectively for the well-being of their children.

- Leah and Julia addresses the misconceptions society has about co-parenting, emphasizing the impact of parental conflict on children rather than divorce itself.

- Julia reflects on regrets from her divorce experience and offers advice on how to approach difficult conversations and decisions during co-parenting.

- She shares insights on co-parenting with a high-conflict ex-partner, highlighting the importance of one parent making a positive difference in the co-parenting dynamic.

- Julia shares a light-hearted moment involving co-parenting with her children's bonus mom and the humorous misunderstandings that can arise in a blended family dynamic.
