parenting together, living apart 

Separation is undoubtedly one of the most difficult times of your life. We understand that each of you loves your children and that it’s important for you and them, that they spend meaningful time with both of you. Disagreements over parenting or financial matters can cause a great deal of conflict which can be unhealthy for you, and for the children. 


Parenting After Separation is here to help parents learn how to parent together while living apart. Our focus is on you and your family. We understand that conflict in relationship breakdown is common, however we will take the time to help you recognise and minimise conflict, so that it doesn’t impact the children unnecessarily. 


We want the best for all Australian separating families so that children can grow up confidently, knowing they are loved and involved in both their parents lives.

ONLINE COURSES 

The Parenting After Separation Online Course has been written in a way that is parent friendly, and child focused. It's not about teaching you how to be parents. It's about helping you to keep the children in mind as you navigate important decision making in your post separation relationship.  This course has been widely used by Australian parents. The certificate is accepted by your lawyer, ICL and mediator. In fact, over 30% of our students are directly recommended by family lawyers. 


The Breaking the Cycle of Conflict Course is for those parents who want to change old patterns of behaviour which cause persistent damaging conflict. The course helps both parents with improved communication and personal resilience,  regardless of who they feel is causing the conflict. 

Parenting Coordination is a new area of family law which provides after-care for parenting orders and agreements. My role is to educate and coach you through the the issues arising after agreements are made. I can help resolve ongoing disputes and minor disagreements, working with both parents in a safe, collaborative and child-focused manner. 


Parenting Coordination helps to minimise stress on all the family.  As a trained facilitator, my commitment is to help you learn new strategies and create new patterns so you can each move on with your lives and be the best co-parents you can be for your children.

equal shared parenting

Family Mediation is an intermediary step which helps you minimise disputes and navigate a win-win for both parents. In family matters it must always be kept top of mind that the silent third party is your children.


As a registered Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner, I can help you come to important agreements, away from the stress and expense of court.  I remain neutral and impartial in the process, with a committment to shared parenting that works for your unique family dynamic.  More information at Jasmin Newman Mediation

The long term impact of parent conflict 

David's parents separated when he was 13 years old and was in his first year of high school. David had heard his parents fighting a lot and had sometimes become quite frightened when he was younger. Over the years, he had got used to the fighting and began to put his headphones on until it was over. They often argued about money but sometimes he heard them argue about him, and who he would live with.


After the separation he thought things would get better and the fighting would stop. Sadly for David, it only got worse. He felt like he was to blame as the arguments seemed to be more about him than anything else. David became anxious and began to worry about adult matters that he was not in control of. He started having trouble sleeping and became uninterested in school and sports, which he had always previously loved. 

The Problem:

When children are exposed to arguments between their parents, they often report feeling like they are the cause. This makes them feel responsible for things that in reality, they have no control over. Children from separated families where there is high conflict tend to have adverse outcomes later in life. 


The Solution:

Separation is a stressful time for children too. Being child-focused means protecting them from parental conflict. There are many options for parents  including family counselling, mediation, and post separation courses to help you keep the kids in focus as you make decisions that will affect their future.

Invaluable

An excellent well laid out course. Good mix of written content, Videos, and many external links to keep me reading and learning for quite a while. My kids and I are embarking on a very long and exhausting journey, but with the aid of courses like this, and the extra (and necessary) tools it helped me locate, I think it is invaluable.

Highly recommended

Thanks very much, Jasmin for what was definitely an educational experience in regards to co-parenting. I learnt so much, not just about myself, but about how to better improve my relationship with my co-parent, which will benefit our son for years to come. I'd definitely recommend this course for anyone who is currently going through a separation and wants to improve the journey.

Excellent Course

Jasmin has compiled and presented this course in a manner that completely resonated with me and hopefully others as a separated parent, even in such a challenging and highly emotional time. An important reminder for separated parents that regardless of their 'adult issues' that their kid's memories should be the best they can be and both parents are capable of facilitating that!

Lots of helpful information

My co-parent and I separated nearly 8 years ago. I wish that we knew about this course back then. I would recommend it to any parents who have recently separated, or even those who are considering separating. It has a lot of helpful information that can not only help guide you through your co-parenting challenges but can prepare you for the journey ahead.

Comprehensive and Eye Opening

Quite honestly the most comprehensive and eye-opening course I have had the pleasure of completing. The self-reflection and hard-hitting points really helped navigate my perception and re-affirm that this is truly about the children and letting go of misconceptions about the other parent. Comprised of varying outlooks and situations with real feedback from children of separated parents really made me re-evaluate the pressures of our situation. It feels liberating to know there is hope and I now feel better equipped to tackle the more difficult conversations with my children’s father.

I loved this course!

I loved that this course was online and I could do it at my own pace and in my free time. I think this course gave me some good insight. Even though the situation my children are in is very different to most families I have been able to see how actions and words of a parent can directly impact the children.
