Our Family Wizard Co-Parenting App Improves Communication

By Sheryl Rentz on September 21, 2023

Parents sitting in front of paper with their young child.

Even under the best circumstances, raising kids after a separation isn’t easy. Modern life is chaotic, and it can be challenging to arrange everyone’s schedules, including your children’s drop-offs and pick-ups from school, sports practice, extracurricular activities, and more.

Co-parenting, also referred to as parallel parenting, is when parents who no longer have a romantic relationship with each other work together and communicate frequently to ensure their child’s needs and best interests are met. Communication is essential for co-parenting to be effective and for both parents to provide a safe and nurturing environment for their kids.

There is a co-parenting app called Our Family Wizard (OFW) that makes things a lot easier by preventing mishaps and misunderstandings and providing a clear record of communication between parents. Judges in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, sometimes require divorced parents to communicate using Our Family Wizard. The app has been required by divorce court judges in 45 states around the U.S.

The Benefits of the OFW App

The OFC app allows you to streamline scheduling and remain in touch with the other parent. Its user-friendly tools provide financial transparency and several other benefits, including:

  • Shared calendars
  • Easy record keeping
  • Planning trips and events
  • Instant messaging
  • Documenting your communications
  • Arranging reimbursement
  • Accessible using phones, tablets, and computers
  • Getting reminders for activities, meetings, and appointments
  • Arranging transportation
  • Requesting schedule changes

OFW Is Required by Judges in Montgomery County

Effective communication is crucial for co-parenting. You want to speak directly with each other because using your children as messengers is not a good idea. It causes confusion, and it may lead to serious legal issues. For parents to keep everything clear and above-board, it’s important to have a way to communicate with each other and keep a record of everything you say. Our Family Wizard is a great way to achieve this.

This convenient app is available through Apple and Android. OFW makes it easy to store calendars, messages, expenses, and events all in one place. The app allows you to add professional accounts, such as therapists and mediators. There is also an optional “emotional spell check” that helps you choose language designed to prevent arguments and disputes. Subscriptions cost $99 for one year, and there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee.
