Peaceful Divorce

July is National Child-Centered Divorce Month & Rosalind Sedacca needs your help to get our message out!

Let’s work together to promote positive
alternatives when parents divorce.

By Rosalind Sedacca, CCT

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:

  • Thanks to my dear friends at, we’ve put together a web page which offers a broad range of free gifts for parents – including coaching sessions, ebooks, audio presentations, etc. – on topics related to divorce. In addition we offer a series of outstanding teleseminars on key issues parents face before and after divorce – presented by an impressive roster of divorce experts.

Check it out at: I encourage you to send your clients to this site to access this complimentary material.

  • I’ll also be sending out press releases to the media about Child-Centered Divorce Month encouraging them to cover stories related to divorce and parenting

What can YOU do?

  • Send press releases to your local media re Child-Centered Divorce Month and asking for an interview to discuss your own expertise (don’t forget TV as well as print and radio)
  • Create videos to post on and elsewhere sharing your wisdom.
  • Create your own teleseminars.
  • Offer workshops or lectures in your community. Team up with other divorce professionals to expand both your content and audience.
  • Write articles and send to newspapers, magazines, online article distribution sites, social networking sites, etc.
  • Support CCD Month by sending your clients to my website and the Child-Centered Divorce Month page so they can take advantage of all the gifts and benefits. Visit
  • Create other programs or valuable material to share during July.

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 I look forward to hearing from you all.

Many thanks for your participation and support!

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
