Because when a family breaks up, children can be the most vulnerable and have no power over the way their lives are to change, it is up to you as their parents to do your best to minimise the effects on them. When you separate from each other you will both continue to be parents.
This means that cooperation and non-confrontational negotiation with both parents working together to secure arrangements which meet your children’s needs is the best way forward. You know your children and as parents are best able to mitigate the effects of the break-uo on them, together you can devise the most suitable living arrangements for the them. Agreements reached by the parents together are more likely to work in the longer term and be respected by the wider family.
