Rule #1

Divorce is commonplace and children are capable of overcoming a lot, but it can still have some very devastating effects. I recommend that parents go to our website and download the My Children’s List which contains some simple rules that they should follow. My Children’s List link: Below is an example with a short narrative.

Do not recruit children to your side.

Your child has two parents and should be allowed to love and enjoy both. Tearing down the bond between your child and your ex in not just selfish, it is outright child abuse. Just as cruel is requiring your child to “spy’ on the other parent. Your child is entitled to a normal environment when at the other parent’s home. And instructing a child to be “sneaky” in NEVER okay. Kids are impressionable. Always keep in mind that teaching such bad behavior can have long-term consequences.
