While most of us dream of a co-parenting relationship that involves mutual respect, understanding and kindness, this often is not the case.
When one is going through a divorce, you believe that this is as bad as it’s ever going to get. You hope that if you can just get through this, then all will be right again in your world. I told myself this. Everyday.
So many clients come to me and say “How could he/she be surprised that I want a divorce? I have been telling him/her for years that I am not happy!”
We all want our kids to thrive and none of us want our kids to suffer the effects of our choices. So how do you ensure that you can always take the high road?
When you’re divorced or divorcing, co-parenting can make any situation worse if you let it. Co-Parenting through and post divorce is like a dance, only the steps and footwork aren’t pre-written.
how can we focus on the beauty of the season when our reality consists of dividing up our time with the kids and potentially fighting over every little detail of what used to be a special time.
