MetadataShow full item record
The study explored post-divorce co-parenting relationships by ex-spouses in a bid to ensure their children’s well-being. The relationships are marked by cooperation, conflict and disengagement in the different co-parenting arrangements on custody, communication and meetings. The aim of the study was to assess the post-divorce co-parenting relationships by ex-spouses in Mbare in order to ensure their children’s well-being. The research was qualitative in nature and it employed in-depth interviews and focus group discussions for data collection. An explanatory research design was used in the study. The research employed the principle of data saturation to sample 16 divorced co-parents who participated in the study. The family development theory underpinned the study. The study findings reflected that divorced ex-spouses with children establish different co-parenting relationships after divorce as they want to ensure the well-being of their children. The study also revealed that the quality of the post-divorce co-parenting relationships are a result of factors which include the causes of divorce, remarriage by either or both spouses as well as financial constraints. The study found out that the nature of the post-divorce co-parenting relationships by the parents had implications on the well-being of their children. Strict law enforcement, counselling and education were identified as solutions for maintaining working co-parenting relationships by divorced parents to ensure their children’s well-being. The study recommends family programs to be run after divorce including educative positive parenting programs and counselling for divorced parents and their children. There should be strict law enforcement aimed at the enhancement of the well-being of children in divorced families.
