Why Madonna inspired CoParenting in a Box™
Why Madonna inspired CoParenting in a Box™
It’s not enough to just have a ‘good divorce’
Madonna – she and other parents like her – are the reason why I created a resource that is now partnering with organisations like National Family Mediation and Families Need Fathers.
Even though she had a very civilised divorce (using the Collaborative Law process) the later custody battles (now resolved) show that even with a healthy divorce, fighting over the kids can go on for years.
This is why I created the unique CoParenting in a Box™ resource – with partnerships with National Family Mediation, Families Need Fathers and other key organisations now coming on board.
How to co-parent with someone you don’t like anymore
The resource provides a way for parents who no longer live together to find better ways to resolve co-parenting disputes.
Users of the resource access video interviews with top experts in their fields – including parenting and mediation – and other key resources, all in one place.
Not just good information, but also complimentary initial access to a holistic range of experts, many of whom offer support via the Alternative Divorce Directory.
Family separation (and the battles that ensue) cost the UK economy more than we spend on defence.
The ongoing disputes post-divorce can continue to blight the lives of children and their extended families. This has a direct impact on the productivity of employees in the workplace – especially if parental conflict continues over many years.
Largely ignored by most employee assistance programmes, things are changing for the better with regard to providing support for employees who no longer live in the same house as the other parent of their children.
HR & Business Development Director at Azureus Ltd, Gareth Williams, has recently included my Divorce First Aid Training for Employees in a package of courses available to SME’s who are looking for something beyond the usual range of courses on offer. Time Management training is important, but difficult to put into action when you’re psychologically exhausted by a long-running dispute with your Ex, or unable to get access to see your own children.
A top provider of employee ‘perks’ is going to be sharing free access to CoParenting in a Box™ later this year, because they recognise that employees need a wide range of resources, often beyond the scope of your traditional employee wellness programmes.
Perkbox provide access to more than a hundred employee rewards that has proven to increase staff retention significantly – on average, by 14%. The ‘perks’ range from free food in major UK restaurants, to movie tickets, to phone insurance and more. The ‘more’ includes a voucher to a complimentary CoParenting in a Box™, which will in turn give over 300,000 UK employees access to hundred’s of pounds of no-obligation discovery sessions and information from parenting experts through to family mediators and financial advisors, all focused on helping those families to resolve conflict and to evolve into successful extended families.
If Guy Ritchie and Madonna had accessed CoParenting in a Box™ – and the expert advice within it – they may have avoided wasting a whole lot of money and putting their kids through the horror of parents who are at war. Thanks to companies like Perkbox and the organisations and charities supporting non-adversarial routes through family change, many UK employees will be better informed and better resourced than parents like Madonna, who for all her fame and fortune, suffers the same parenting issues as the rest of us. But we now have better ways to deal with those issues than running off to court.

Not only that, but there is an impact on the […]Read More
