Uninvolved Parenting Explained

Uninvolved parenting practices continuous emotional detachment between the children and parents. It is hands-off, providing only the necessities like food, clothing, and shelter, while essentially expecting children to fend for themselves in terms of structure and emotional support. Parents are uninterested in their child’s school life and interests.

There is limited communication between parents confined to necessary interactions only. Co-parenting is a method where parents work together to raise their children in a stable and healthy environment, albeit under 2 roofs.
