Essential Back-to-School Co-Parenting Tips


Dads’ Resource Center sheds light on co-parenting during the school year

STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania – (August 15, 2022) – With summer break coming to a close, millions of students around the country are heading back to the classroom. Many parents face challenges throughout the year, but those who co-parent may have additional ones that need to be addressed. The key to successful co-parenting during the school year is to know what to focus on. This will help ensure a smoother and happier year for everyone involved.

“Children enter into each school year both excited and nervous about what lies ahead,” said Dads’ Resource Center Executive Director Jeffrey Scott Steiner. “More than anything they need to know that both parents are working together and are there for them as they go through the journey.”

One of the most important tools for co-parenting during the school year is to have a plan. It’s a wise idea for the family, or at least the parents, to hold a friendly meeting to iron out decisions and ensure everyone is on the same page. With the message, communication, and consistency, the children will be better prepared to handle issues and navigate between the two homes.

“Children today face extraordinary pressure,” said Dads’ Resource Center Founder and Chair Dr. Joel N. Myers. “With the internet and social media, they are bombarded by negative outside influences. The high costs for post-secondary education and our rapidly evolving job market make it increasingly difficult for them to plan for their future. Now more than ever, there is an urgent need for both parents to be fully involved in the education and upbringing of their children.”
