…the debut of Co-Parenting Matters,
a live, weekly talk show on BlogTalk Radio!

Debut show: Sunday, October 25, 2009

Co-Parenting Matters
because kids thrive when parents partner.

Join us every Sunday evening @ 9:30 PM EST for a lively discussion of a variety of co-parenting related issues: communication, single parenting, divorce, finances, custody, dating, wellness, stepfamilies, and much more.

Hosted by the founders of (Talibah Mbonisi) and (Deesha Philyaw and Michael Thomas), along with guest experts: attorneys, counselors, and fellow co-parents! [And you can count on me (Blkirish) to make an appearance or two. Deesha is my fiancee…and my favorite writer.]

For our inaugural show, we will focus on Co-Parenting Myths. What misconceptions hinder your co-parenting relationship? Share your experiences and pose your questions by calling in to (646) 378-0580 during the show on October 25th.

What issues and questions would you like to hear discussed on Co-Parenting Matters? We are planning upcoming shows and welcome YOUR input! Send us an email (info AT coparenting101 DOT org), or call in during the show.

Can’t join us on Sunday nights? Listen to CoParenting Matters podcasts at BlogTalk Radio your leisure.
