Parenting coordination is a process, often recommended by family courts, that helps divorcing or separating spouses learn to reduce conflict and learn to become effective co-parents to their children. It reduces parental conflict and advocates for the affected children, trying to minimize their stress and risks. Parenting coordination is more rigorous than co-parent counseling, and parent coordinators work under the authority extended to them by a court order or settlement agreement.
