By Betsy Ross, LICSW CGP When a co-parent won’t cooperate or stop fighting, it can be positively maddening. Ex-spouses can become immersed in rage, frustration, and a sense of powerlessness when their co-parenting partnership isn’t working. This can leave little energy for either to move ahead with their post-divorce lives. You cannot force an uncooperative co-parent to stop fighting. You can take them to court and make their choice to misbehave costly and time consuming (for you both). You can do this repeatedly. Unfortunately, co-parents focused on being destructive or on hurting their ex can always find new ways to do so. The more you understand about *why* your ex won’t give up the fight the better your chances at figuring out *what* to do. Original article: [Huffington Post](
