Increasingly, families are recognizing that children need to have both parents involved in their lives. More so than ever before, parenting time and responsibilities are shared, often equally, between parents. Professionals who routinely work with families regarding these issues will often promote “the best interest of the child.” Parents are advised to have a plan well in advance of any major transition such as separation/divorce, moving to a new home or changing schools.

Divorce. The very word itself conjures up a plethora of other interesting words, one of which, near the top of the list for me, was Hiroshima…as in “I wish that skank was there when it happened.” Another one is napalm.

And ALWAYS take the high road, at least in public. Because most likely, even your closest friends are tired of hearing about it. That’s what your therapist is for ;).

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."
