Parenting Resources and Support
Co-parenting can be a complicated and stressful situation for any ex-partners, but when one of those partners was abusive, it can take this situation to a whole new level of stress and may present risk factors for the children involved. Living with violence can affect a woman’s ability to parent.
Very often, there has been an erosion of her authority as a parent that leaves her feeling powerless. Even in the midst of the violence, the non-offending parent may have taken many creative and courageous measures to ensure the safety of her children and to provide for their physical, emotional, and social needs, and continue to be motivated by their needs. Whether you have left an abusive relationship or you have determined that it’s safest for you and your children to remain in your shared home, Circle can help you explore any questions you have around parenting.
