What does the app do?

In situations where you and your ex-partner are disagreeing, your children are at risk of being caught in the middle. Separating better reduces this risk by providing a how-to guide for co-parenting, so you can always find a way through that puts your children first.  

By engaging with the app content, you’ll learn skills that will help you create and maintain safe environments for your children to grow up. Separating better gives you complete access to professional, evidence-based content such as:

  • Work it out videos based on everyday situations. These illustrate how things like shouting, blaming, and complaining can hurt children who feel caught in the middle between their parents before showing you how to improve each situation.
  • Evidence-based articles that offer you expert advice and guidance on the many stages of separation and co-parenting.
  • An emotional readiness quiz to help you reflect on where you are emotionally in your separation journey. You can also set personal goals to help you progress in your understanding of the app content.
  • A parenting plan to allow you and your ex-partner to co-parent effectively. This plan helps you both lay out the parenting tasks you each need to be responsible for, taking into account the individual needs of your children.
  • A budget planner to assist you in creating a budget for your household. This will allow you to get a better hold on your finances as your household bills and incomes change.
  • A goals tracker to remind you where you want to make improvements, changes, or turnarounds in your own parenting journey.
