Helpful apps for engaging co-parenting virtual visitation

On Behalf of | Feb 27, 2024 | family law |

Now that so many Americans have easy access to portable electronic devices and the Internet, co-parents can more easily transcend geographical limitations. In fact, in recent years, a plethora of apps and platforms have been rolled out specifically to foster co-parenting communication and engaging virtual visitation experiences.

When co-parents are thoughtful about their approach to virtual visitation, it can prove to be an engaging and enjoyable experience for both parents and children. Integrating apps that offer various features, from video calls and messaging to interactive games and shared calendars, into a family’s virtual visitation arrangements can help to facilitate the kinds of connection that parents and kids who are separated by distance tend to, very understandably, crave. 


Caribu is an interactive video-calling app that turns virtual visitations into family storytime or playtime. It allows parents and children to read books, play games and color together while on a real-time video call. With a library of books and activities suitable for various age groups, Caribu can serve as a uniquely helpful app for co-parents who have younger kids. 


While primarily known as a platform for business meetings, Zoom has become a versatile tool for families to stay connected. Its features go beyond simple video calls, offering options to share screens, which can be used so that parents and kids can watch movies together, play online games or even help with homework. 


Skype is one of the original video-calling apps, known for its reliability and high-quality video chats. It allows for personalization of calls with fun backgrounds and emojis, making video chats livelier and engaging. 

Incorporating fun apps into a co-parenting routine can make virtual visitation a more enriching and enjoyable experience. And these are just a few of the options available for co-parents and their kids to try!
