Kids Come First.....talk!
Many separated parents experience confusion, anxiety and even anger. Sometimes, the end of the relationship is not their choice - that creates resentment and disappointment. Children can very easily become pawns in an often “silent battle” between the parents about them and about their futures. Other parents battle each other openly. In a strange way, for many parents, fighting is easier and more intuitive than trying to get along, even if intellectually they know the latter approach is better for their kids. Family mediation is not suitable for every case but for most, it is the right way to deal with kids’ issues on separation. A skilled mediator will moderate the discussion between the parents, keep them on point and help them focus on their kids.
