Bashing Your Ex is Bad News for Your Children

Member Rosalind Sedacca, CCT wrote this important post. Please read and pass it on!

So, this weekend is Father’s Day!

If you are separated or divorced, this is a day that can be filled with anxiety, frustration, anger and all kinds of emotions.

What I want to stress to you today is that no matter what kind of man/”ex” your children’s father is…he is still their father and they need him desperately!

When Will It End?!

When will it end?

Have you ever found yourself asking this question??

Perhaps you ask it about a particular day.

About a particular meeting.

About a situation.

About a moment in time.

The real question is….What is IT?

When we are going through a divorce, we seem to ask ourselves this question over and over again….thinking that the “IT” is the divorce.
