Technology & Shared Parenting After a Divorce

Co-parenting and communicating can be rough after a divorce as sometimes it is still on shaky ground, and the freshness of the divorce takes time to subside. Today’s technology can make a difference in managing shared parenting time.

Co-parenting situations can be utterly stressful and very difficult at times.  This makes it hard on the children too.   Divorce, believe it or not, can sometimes be more stressful for the children than the parents.  School schedules, doctor appointments, baseball practice, and all other things related to the children can be hard to keep up with for the parents or even grandparents.  

Manage Split Parenting Time with Technology

Luckily for everyone, technology has come a long way!  Several different apps can help make this transition for parents much more straightforward, especially for those who can not communicate well.  This can help keep the negativity between the parents down and help keep everyone up-to-date and having shared information. It can also help structure schedules for parents not following parenting plans in TN.

Benefits of Using a Shared Parenting App After a Divorce

So let’s discuss what using a shared parenting technology parenting app can actually do for parents.  

We’ve recently seen some apps that might be helpful. Although we do not endorse any apps, one app called OurFamilyWizard was created by a divorce couple to help keep communication between the parties as short and sweet as possible. Each parent can have their account, and can add as many third-party, child, and professional accounts as wish. This app does have a yearly fee. For that fee you get controlled communication between the parents, accountability of each parent, and transparency between both homes. The app also allows you to share a calendar, keep track of expenses, and documents all messages between the parents—an absolutely perfect tool for parents with split parenting time.
