Best I have seen in this kind of book! Isolina Ricci has managed to get
more useful and practical information in fewer pages than any other
author on this topic. It's actually fun to read. The CoParenting Toolkit is easy
on the eye, and the layout allows readers to digest material rapidly. This book is
a fit for a high school level reader or a professor in psychology—and that is hard
to accomplish. I am looking forward to distributing this book to my colleagues in
the family court and parent education.

In this new book, Isolina Ricci provides a rich, concise, and highly
readable manual for parents coping with the difficult process of
coparenting after divorce. She expands upon ideas presented in her classic
book, Mom's House, Dad's House, by giving parents specific guidelines to help
them navigate the confusing process of learning how to negotiate parenting
together after divorce. In a reader-friendly format, Dr. Ricci helps parents define
their goals and provides them with tools that will make coparenting work for
them. This is an excellent resource that belongs on the shelves of all
professionals who work with divorced parents.

The CoParenting Toolkit is one of those books you hope every single
parent and coparent will read and use. It's practical, inspiring, and easyto-
use. The Quizzes and Guidelines were my favorites.

parents and children. Isolina Ricci's CoParenting Toolkit provides an eminently
do-able set of steps to help calm the storm and create a constructive parenting
plan for the whole family's benefit. This is an enormous contribution to the
cause of effective parenting and the well-being of the children of divorce.
