Cupid’s Advice:

Many celebrity parents have found a way to put their children first after a break-up and are able to successfully co-parent. As long as you find that the child is the center of the relationship, you will be able to successfully parent your child with your ex, too:

1. Put the child first: Like Hayden Panettiere, you must always think about your child first rather than your own feelings. It might be better for the child to have a set schedule or live with one parent full-time, but ultimately it’s whatever is best for the child. Co-parenting can lead to happy co-families.
