Co-parenting can be a challenge, especially when you’re just starting. Fortunately, advances in technology have made it easier for divorced parents to communicate peacefully and effectively. Take a look at these five co-parenting apps that can make your life infinitely easier.
This app offers a wealth of features, including a calendar that centralizes the children’s schedule, easily allowing both parents to keep track of important appointments and events. It also offers a message board between parents that doesn’t allow for editing or deleting communications–ensuring that both parents can accurately track conversations. You’ll also find an expense log that helps co-parents stay on top of expenditures and upcoming costs, as well as a journal feature that allows you to record observations and share memories with your co-parent. Current prices start at $8.25 per month and vary according to the amount of storage space you require.
The 2Houses app is specifically designed for separate households. It offers a color-coordinated family calendar, an information bank that houses all of your child’s personal information, such as their medical information, social security number, teacher’s names, sports coach’s telephone number, and more. The app also has an expense-tracking feature that always shows what needs to be paid and by whom to ensure that accounts are balanced. Current prices begin at $12.50 per month, billed annually.
The Talking Parents primarily provides a platform for co-parents to communicate. It keeps all the communications in one place, in chronological order. All messages are accessible to both parents, but they may neither delete nor change them. The app can be particularly practical during the divorce or mediation process. Pricing varies, starting with a free version leading up to $19.99 per month to include features such as call transcripts and recordings.
Like other co-parenting apps, Amicable offers a calendar to keep track of the family’s schedule and has a secure private messaging feature for parents. But this app tries to improve harmony within the family on a deeper level with their goal-sharing feature. Through the app, co-parents can share their objectives and hopes for the family and help each other understand and better manage each other’s co-parenting expectations. You can use pre-filled suggestions or write in your own goals. Prices start at £9.99 a month ($13.78 USD).
