Peaceful Divorce

Let's Unite Against Parental Alienation -- and Stop the Gender Wars!

We all know that despite their best efforts, family courts have been failing our children in post-divorce settlements. To compound that, parents are poorly prepared for the challenges of co-parenting or single parenting facing them once the divorce is over.

Now, fueled by Alec Baldwin's new book, we’re caught up in a gender war brewing over the reality and consequences of Parental Alienation after divorce. This is ill advised and no one will win – especially our children.

As most of you know, I am recognized as The Voice of Child-Centered Divorce and have been fighting for equitable settlements, on behalf of our innocent children, around the U.S. My Child-Centered Divorce Network has become a trusted resource for information on creating cooperative, peaceful divorces.

There is no solution to the enormous challenges resulting from parental alienation – which is an unfortunate reality in our world – if we stay stuck in the perspective of Mom versus Dad. This is not a gender issue – it’s a loving, caring, conscious parenting issue.

We need to educate all divorced parents about the emotional and psychological consequences of keeping their children from the other parent. That’s the only way we will have resolution on behalf of our children.

Wake up Dads and Moms -- and start battling in the courts together. The future well-being of our children is at stake.

I welcome your feedback and suggestions. Visit for lots of free articles on creating the child-centered divorce our children all deserve!

With deep appreciation to the entire Peaceful Divorce community,

Thank you Roz for bringing to light a very important and often overlooked issue.

Children were born with two parents for a reason. It is time for co-parents to focus on each other's strengths and pick up the slack for each other's weaknesses, instead of tearing each other down.

Co-parents need to act as a team and remember that their relationship is about their kids!

Thanks for your comments, Cynthia. I agree it's time we brought this issue to light with some insights about the negative consequences when parents intentionally disparage and alienate the other parent.

Fathers groups, NOW and other feminist groups are taking a stand against each other which serves no purpose other than slinging blame. No one is taking responsibility for how this affects innocent children.

What can our community do to speak out, get media and parent attention, and offer options that parents can take to heart and implement during and after their divorce?

What Is a Caucus?

One of the guiding values in mediation and collaborative law is transparency. It comes with the territory when one is trying to establish trust with two different parties. Sometimes an issue may arise that one party may wish not to discuss in front of the other. If they both agree, separate meetings may take place. These meetings are called caucuses.Caucuses can be…See More

How Important Is the Budget in Divorce Planning?

I think everyone’s least favorite word is BUDGET. Why don’t we want to hear that word? Think about it: We’re asking ourselves to do something we don’t want to do — or worse yet, someone else is asking us to do it. While we might not like them, having a budget does help. In divorce planning — whether you are going to litigation,…See More

21st Century Parenting Plans

I remember when the default custody arrangement had one parent as the custodial parent, and the other parent was known as the “Disneyland parent.” They had their children every other weekend, and maybe once during the week for dinner. Today it is more common to see joint parenting time consist of one week on, and one week off or “two-two-five-five” time,…See More

Including a Financial Professional in Your Mediation

Very often, couples who are divorcing amicably, or who have straightforward financial situations, will forgo meeting with a financial professional while they go through mediation. Though this may seem logical on its face, “going it alone” may result in unnecessary hardship and inaccurate calculations.  It is easy to simply look at a tax table today and say “I am going…See More
