Separated Australian Families are Enjoying the Benefits of 2houses

Co-parenting can be a lot of hard yakka but something that many Australian parents are finding out, it doesn’t have to be. In fact, for Australian parents who are separated, or divorced, co-parenting can be as easy as a simple download that helps create a bridge between parents, even when there are continued tensions from the separation.

So what is this amazing download that will be the bridge between co-parents? The answer is 2houses—-a co-parenting app that more and more Australian parents are discovering and utilizing for all of the amazing benefits that the app offers.

But what are those benefits? Well, we are here to explore just what Australian families are the happiest about with 2houses.

Benefit Number One: Custody Sharing Made Easy

When kids are going between two homes, there can be a lot of logistics to work through. It isn’t as simple as grab your bag, and there needs to be a lot of communication, scheduling and planning for it to be pulled off easily. 2houses is perfect for making it easy.

The app is designed to set schedules and to communicate completely over the app or platform. What this means is that you can let the other parent know about any changes in the schedule, which they can sign off on, messages about events happening or updating any documents that are needed to be shared.

Not only does this ability of the app reduce confusion, but it also means the parents are communicating together and not through their child, which happens quite often. In addition, it removes a lot of the tension that can occur, especially when parents recently split.

Knowing when things are happening, what’s happening, what is needed for the child and having accessibility to data during an emergency makes custody sharing much easier.

Benefit Number Two: Less Tension on Shared Expenses

As you know, separation and divorce come with a lot of tensions and one of them is definitely in the finances. It can be difficult to finally reach a financial agreement and decide on what expenses will be shared. In addition, even after the financial agreement is reached, it can be difficult to work through payments and getting everything shared.

The 2houses platform and app is perfect for this process. The app is designed to help manage expenses with shared wish lists to list unexpected expenses, such as a new pair of shoes needed by the child, and a budget tool for known shared expenses. It also allows you to keep up with balances and know who paid for what, which helps avoid the conflict topic of financials.

There are so many benefits with avoiding these conflict topics, but the biggest one is that when parents are working together amicably, the kids have two cooperating homes to go to and that eases a lot of the tension or them.

Benefit Number Three: Child Friendly Use

One thing that 2houses emphasises is that co-parenting apps should be beneficial to the whole family. While a large amount of the app is designed for parents to partner together without the conflict topics or as much tension as can happen normally, a lot of thought went into ways that 2houses can support the whole family.

And that benefit really is important to Australian families. So how is 2houses child friendly?

First, the app is extremely easy to navigate. This makes it great for parents who aren’t as tech savvy or for younger kids who are still learning how to use apps. Second, the app is designed for kids to also connect with parents on it. When a child is added to the platform, they can look over the schedule and see what is happening. This helps provide stability that might be missing as they move back and forth between two homes.

In addition, being able to connect with parents, the kids can send journals and messages to the parent they are not with so that they can keep building a strong connection. Having these options supports the health and happiness of children through the process of separation and divorce.

Benefit Number Four: Cost Effective

We all want to save a few quid, especially when household finances drop after separation or divorce so that is why Australian families are choosing 2houses. Not only is it affordable, less than 20 quid a month, it can easily be a shared expense. You can also purchase it yearly to get additional pricing savings.

With all of the features it offers, and the benefits of co-parenting in positive and effective manners, there are very few reasons to not download it and use this app. And cost is one of those reasons.

Benefit Number Five: Creates Options for Communication

Finally, communication is key for co-parenting and it isn’t always easy to have when you are going through a separation. With the 2houses app, parents can communicate through the app because it works like a third party. In addition, the app is a neutral option and you can share information in a number of ways: through the calendar and scheduling, with messages, through the documents folder and with the journal and album features.

When information and communication is flowing, it helps reduce those tension conversations and allow the kids to simply enjoy their time with their parents, instead of being a messenger for them. And the app helps to keep emotion and tension out of the interactions since everything is organized, easy to use and easy to share with your ex partner.

When it comes to co-parenting apps, this is the one that makes the most sense. It understands the needs of Australian parents and it exceeds the expectations to meet those needs. Parents can focus on parenting and leave all the rest to the app for a low cost that won’t put added pressure on either parents’ finances.
