Even if you are not a divorced parent I can bet you know one or two. We live in an age when divorce is almost the norm for many parents and children. I brought my ex-husband Adam Ritz and Psychotherapist/Emotional Wellness Expert Dr. Will Miller in to discuss how to coparent more effectively.

I do not claim to be an expert on this topic but I am not afraid to say that Adam and I have done a pretty good job raising our two daughters in a “non-traditional” home situation. I hope we may be able to answer some of your questions. Dr. Will touches on topics like, bringing in a new partner, the knowledge of extended family members, and the importance of putting KIDS FIRST!

I admit we barely scratched the surface on this topic and I hope to have another show with the three of us again. I would also like to recommend a book that helped me tremendously when I divorced. EX-Etiquette for Parents by Jann Blackstone-Ford and Sharyl Jupe. You may have to look for it since it’s been around for awhile but I can’t tell you how many times I referred to this book. I have also given it too many of my divorcing friends.

    I LOVE this episode. I grew up having my step sisters’ father at Christmas morning breakfast, hanging out with their grandmother (who I adored), and my step-mom driving my mother to the hospital when no one else was available. I had ex-boyfriends act uncomfortable when they were around this, and I never understood why. This should be the norm, especially with all the blended families we have now. It should always be about what is best for the kids, and bad mouthing their other parent or surrounding them with stress and hatred is the worst thing you could do for a child. I could go on for hours because i’m very passionate about this topic! Thank you for sharing your experience with everyone, and I hope it inspires other families to do the same.
