In the last couple of days we came across a recent interview given by Ronan Keating. Normally, celebrity interviews don’t quite catch our attention. When we heard that co-parenting was a topic discussed, our interest was piqued. Bath Avenue Counselling Centre have in the past held courses on the very topic of co-parenting, and we were very interested to hear what the former Boyzone star had to say on the matter and the challenges faced in such a situation.
Co-parenting is a challenge that is facing an increasing number of parents in Ireland. Many couples no longer stay together ‘for the sake of the children’, instead seeking a more appropriate and healthier situation in which to live and parent. With the stigma associated with divorce and separation dissipating slowly, parents are now much more likely to find an alternative to living together in what may well be an acrimonious and unhealthy atmosphere.
