When The Other Parent (And Their Lawyer) Are Assh*les

In today’s episode, I had a remarkable discussion with Christina McGhee, MSW, an internationally recognized divorce parenting expert, speaker and author, who has spent most of her career educating parents and professionals on how to minimize the impact of divorce on children.

She's written a book called PARENTING APART: How separated and divorced parents can raise happy and secure kids. Most recently, she worked on a super powerful documentary called Split which discusses the separation effect on the kid.

In our discussion, she mentioned that in the process of uncoupling, it happens very often that problems in the partnership translates to the other party being identified as having a problem with parenting as well. When in reality, they are separate issues.

She also highlighted the importance of having support and access to information to get through the process of divorce well and more quickly. This enables families to make better choices, help keep them grounded, and allow them to take a step back and respond rather than react to situations.

Listen to the full episode and learn more about minimizing separation effects on children and the role Family Law professionals in shaping the experience for parents and for children.
