I'm excited to announce that the fourth annual recognition of National
Child-Centered Divorce Month will take place in July throughout North America.
Professionals who deal with divorce issues -- therapists, attorneys, mediators,
coaches, educators, clergy and others -- will be joining forces to share
valuable parenting messages including: Don't Make Your Child a Pawn in Your
Conflict. Put your children's needs first when making decisions related to
divorce or separation.
I am the founder of National Child-Centered Divorce Month and author of How Do I Tell the Kids about the Divorce? A Create-a-Storybook Guide to Preparing Your Children -- with Love! Along with my Child-Centered Divorce Network for parents and my Child-Centered Divorce Groups on LinkedIn, Facebook, Peaceful Divorce and First Wives World, I work closely with a broad group of compassionate divorce educators and professionals. Together we focus on creating the most positive and harmonious outcomes for families transitioning through divorce.
In July we need to discuss and demonstrate how parents can do divorce right. I'm enlisting the nation's legal and therapeutic communities for one purpose: bringing a heightened awareness to parents about their children's fragile sense of self-esteem. We can never overemphasize how dramatically parental decisions about divorce can affect their children!
How can you get involved with Child-Centered Divorce Month? In as many ways as you can think of!
Here’s what my team is already doing:
Check it out at: www.ChildSharing.com/childcentereddivorce. I encourage you to send your clients to this site to access this complimentary material.
What can YOU do?
Please stay in touch and contact me regarding any of the above that you move ahead with. We want to cross-promote one another’s efforts to expand our message as broadly as possible. (And don’t forget to contact me about any media pickup you receive connected to Child-Centered Divorce Month!).
Remember: This is your month as well as mine! Use it as effectively as you can to build your practice and your credibility while helping to educate parents about positive, effective, peaceful divorce choices.
My goal is to spread the word that when parents divorce, their children need them more than ever. Parents ... don't let them down! I hope you will join me in this effort!
If you have any questions or suggestions, you can reach me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you all.
Many thanks for your participation and support!
