Co-parenting is tough.
Our professionals can help!

If you are frustrated with ongoing conflict from attempting to co-parent with a difficult person, Edmonton Family Network is here to help. We offer a variety of resources for parents attempting to co-parent with high-conflict individuals.

High Conflict Personality Characteristics

The Victim

This parent believes there is malicious intent in every action of the other parent.

The Primary Parent

This parent refuses to acknowledge that the child has another parent.

The Cheapskate

This parent does not want to pay for anything the other parent will provide for the child.

The Asshole

This parent is unable to communicate effectively.

The Deadbeat

This parent is not meeting the needs of the child.

We acknowledge that there are other noteworthy character flaws that are not listed above. It can be equally as frustrating attempting to co-parent with a narcissist or a bitter parent. Unfortunately, those characteristics tend to occur in combination with other characteristics.
