Co-parenting is hard enough. From managing the finances of your new lifestyle to organizing your child’s, now split-up, schedule, adjusting to co-parenting can be a serious life disruption. Technology to the rescue! Check out these 5 Co-Parenting Apps that every parent should know about.
Every co-parent knows that there is a serious rough patch that happens before the two of you can see eye-to-eye. Things can get ugly. If you’re in this rough patch, you might want to invest in the Talking Parents app. The app allows parents to keep good records of conversations and interactions with their former partner. The app says it’s goal is to help co-parents avoid disputes.
Money. Money. Money. Finances seems to be the place where most co-parents really struggle. Whether it’s debating how child support payments are spent, or arguments over whether or not private school, and it’s price tag, are good for your kid. CoParently purports to solve this issue. CoParently’s expenses tool enables you to easily log and manage all your shared co-parenting expenses such as children’s activities, clothing, school, medical, etc.
