One Email Address

When you create your account on BothParents you’ll set up an email address. This is the address you’ll give teachers, schools, and anyone else that needs to get in touch with both parents about your children. Any email sent to this address is forwarded to both parents. Each parent sets up the email addresses they want things forwarded to. Parents only see their own email addresses.

calendar - final

A Shared Calendar

Each parent can add, update, and delete their own entries on the calendar. Both parents see everything on the calendar. Parents can also give step-parents, grandparents, etc. read-only or full access to the calendar. You can set up recurring events, color code events by child, and more.

address book final

Important Phone Numbers

Like the calendar, each parent can add, update, and delete entries in the address book. Both parents see everything in the address book. And both parents can give other people read-only or full access to the address book. This is a great place to store contact information for doctors, relatives, baby sitters, and the parents of your kids’ friends.


Photo Sharing

There are lots of photo sharing sites out there but BothParents is designed specifically for the needs of co-parents. All photos are private to you and your children’s other parent, plus anyone you’ve added to your account.



We spend a lot of time thinking through the security. Here’s how it works.

  • When you create your BothParents account you’re asked for the name of your co-parent and their email address. They’ll get a welcome email with a temporary password. That’s all you need to do to set them up. They’ll automatically start getting copies of messages sent to the email address you create.

More About Security

  • You and your co-parent can add, delete, and update calendar entries and information in the address book
  • Both of you can give full or read-only access to the calendar and address book to other people – grandparents, step parents, even your children. Your co-parent can’t see who you’ve given access and vise versa.
  • You can also have messages sent to your email address forwarded to other people. And like with the calendar and address books, only you will see who you’ve set up forwarding for.
