I received an email recently from a father concerned about the impact his wife’s desire for a divorce was having on his children. He said, “Children generally do not want their parents to divorce. In my case, I have watched my two kids ages 3 and 6 cry for hours over the loss of what they knew as their family. However,...

[ad_1]  You’re not a good role model. Stop putting yourself out there, no one cares about how great you are. Don’t ever pretend you try and put the girls first. That is never the case. Ever been on the receiving end of negativity by an ex-spouse? Charly received these texts last week. Yet, how he chose to respond is what makes him an incredible human being, father, husband, and role model. This response is what I will share today. Charly wasn’t always this way.

[ad_1]  To some, I’m a parent, step-parent, co-parent and former single parent. To me, I’m Stacy and I’m a mom, that’s it, plain and simple. Regardless of the title, my role as a parent is the same. I love, I’m consistent and I’m compassionate. My parenting journey is, well, a journey. My first child was born out of wedlock, in fact so was my second. I married my babies’ daddy and we divorced two years later. Single parenting was difficult; however, it was easier parenting alone than with my former husband. Our parenting values were similar; but he wasn’t a good...

He Uses Divorce Mediation To Punish Me · Divorced Moms

4 Reasons Parents File For Divorce In August · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]  What do August and March have in common? In most parts of the United States, the two months don’t even have similar climates, so your answer might understandably be “nothing much.” But according to a study conducted at the University of Washington, Americans file for divorce in August and March more often than any other months. The study analyzed all of the divorce filings in Washington from November 2001 to December 2015; the state has pretty open divorce laws, which made it easy for the researchers to gather the data. What they found was a clear peak in both August...

[ad_1]Fatherhood is a blessing, a responsibility and something every man is 100% capable of doing – at least as well as any mom.   Many of us have just enjoyed a Father’s day celebration. Father’s Day was started by a woman, Sonora Smart Dodd, who was raised by a single dad, William Smart. He was the sole parent to Sonora and her five brothers after their mother died during childbirth. The first Father’s Day celebration was Sunday, June 19, 1910. But it wasn’t until President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day in 1966...

5 Common Co-Parenting Conflicts And How To Resolve Them · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]Be the kind of co-parent who helps your children flourish and grow!   As much as you love your children, at times it can be difficult to put their best interest before the pain or anger you feel over the divorce or, at your ex. How well your children adjust to your divorce will depend on how well you and your ex co-parent once the divorce is final and how little co-parenting conflicts you have to deal with.
