I was seven years old when my parents divorced, so when my husband and I decided to separate I knew my kids aged five and nine would have a tough time with the situation. I remembered feeling let down as a child, and that the break up of our family was somehow my fault. And I recall all the talk about going to court, which made me feel scared and alone. I certainly didn't want my kids to deal with these negative thoughts if it was avoidable, so I started reading books and talking to professionals to learn how I could best support them throughout the divorce process. I started this blog to share everything I've learned along the way, from practicing effective communication tactics to successfully maneuvering through the court system. I hope you find what you're looking for here!
