New tools help separated and divorced parents communicate

If you are a parents in the midst of separating or getting divorced, you've got a lot on own plate when it comes to just dealing with the end of your marriage. But, through it all, you still have to take care of your kids and that includes managing everyday needs and logistics. To top it all off, you now have to do this with your to-be former spouse who doesn't even live in the same house that you do. How can you do this without forgetting important details or having every conversation with the other parent erupt into a new argument?

Technology might just have the answer for you - or at least part of an answer. Online and app-based programs can help you get organized, stay organized and reduce the need to talk to the other parent about every little thing. 2houses is the creator of one such tool that offers moms and dads the ability to track everything from finances to appointments to visitation times and more. Messages can be sent and received via the program which keeps records of all communications in one easy place for future reference. No longer will you need to scan past text or email records when you use it.

The program is available on the web and also for iOS and Android operating sytems so you can access it from your desktop, tablet, laptop or smartphone. Any opportunity to reduce conflict by clearing up schedules and communication is good for you and your children.
