Crafting a child-centered parenting plan is a balancing act. Which variables are relevant? How should each variable be weighted in the larger scheme? Can the plan grow with the child’s emerging needs and skills? This training identifies ten specific “pillars” upon which every child-centered, developmentally-informed parenting plan should be built. Three of these focus on the quality of co-parenting (communication, cooperation, and consistency of parenting practices). Three focus on the quality of the parent-child relationships (attachment security, emotional maturity, and reciprocal alignment). The remaining four concern the child’s experience of transition between the parents’ care (transitional stresses, transitional objects, sibling support, and culture shock). The training ends with a discussion of how these ten variables, once assessed, can be balanced so as to serve the best interest of the child.
