Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli have tried to make their divorce as painless as possible for their three daughters Luca, Lola, and Fiona. “We are great parents together, so when it’s about the kids, it’s wonderful,” said Garth, according to People. Having discussed the couple’s divorce with the kids, they are all on the same page and understand what is happening, without feeling the need to choose sides. Garth and Facinelli want nothing more for their family to be happy and healthy. The former 90210 actress is even considering moving back to Los Angeles so that the girls have more access to their dad.
How do you remain united in parenting after a split?
When you’re in the middle of a divorce, it’s also very difficult for your children. Here are some ways you can work together to be good parents, even when separated:
1. Make a schedule: Now that you aren’t living together anymore, it’s difficult to collaborate your schedules. Therefore, set certain days and times where you each want to spend time with the kids so there are no arguments or confusion.
2. Talk to your children: A good parent will talk to their kids about what is going on and get their feedback. Ask them how they feel and how they want to spend their time with each parent.
3. Share Holidays: The most stressful times are when it comes to holidays. Your kids don’t want to have to choose how they will spend the best times of the year. Try sharing these important dates, for the kids.
