It is meant to be a time in your life where you stop basing your worth, your happiness, and your self esteem on having a man at your side. This is going to be an all out re-deciding of who you are, who you want to be and what you feel inside.

Tools for Better Co-Parenting
It’s tough enough being a parent this days, but when you add in the layer of co-parenting with your children’s other parent, it can become complicated – the good news is, it doesn’t need to be.

Conscious Dating After Divorce
In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, we explore what Freud called “the unconscious” – the collection of repressed thoughts, wishes, fantasies and drives, many of which have an aggressive quality. What is the relevance? Inside these unconscious conflicts lies the answer to why we are attracted to and or seem to attract a certain kind of person.
The show is called Conscious Dating and our guest is Elizabeth J. Tupling, MS, TLLP is a psychotherapist specializing in individual, and family therapy, and maintains a private practice in Huntington Woods, Michigan.
For the person who is wondering why they are always drawn to the “bad boy” or “bad girl”, the addict, the emotionally and or legally unavailable person, it’s important to “open up the hood and look underneath”. What we’ll usually find is a long standing, established pattern of being attracted to the same kind of person, and not knowing why. Like a moth to a flame, we drift toward exactly what we consciously know is not healthy for us – it’s a real primitive, primal process that originates in early “imprinting” in the brain. This imprinting creates an unconscious definition of how relationships should feel for us – good or bad.
The challenge for the listener is to examine what feels “good” in the early stages of an attraction. And if the person is doing a truthful inventory of these feelings they might find that subtle cues of rejection, the need to chase, dismissal of one’s needs, justification of disrespectful behaviors, all feel vaguely familiar, comfortable and worse off, comforting. Doesn’t make sense does it? It usually doesn’t, it’s unconscious.

The Anatomy of An Affair â€“ Part 3
In this the 3rd segment of our series, The Anatomy of an Affair, we focus on two aspects of recovery. David Feder believes strongly that moving “from discovery to recovery” means much more than merely moving on and allowing time to pass. David says, “if you do that you are leaving the quality of your recovery and your life up to the Gods”. He asks, are you sure that that is what you want to do?
In this segment we begin by discussing what should be considered when making the decision of whether staying together and rebuilding your relationship should even be considered. If not, we review the other option of focusing your recovery on yourself and on becoming the best version of yourself that you can be.
This segment also reviews some of the more common reactions people have once learning of an affair, and we provide tips to take care of your health during this difficult time. The early stage of recovery is a critical time in which you and your partner are at your most vulnerable and this should be taken seriously. Safety is of course paramount.
Regardless of whether the affair that is impacting your life surfaced recently or whether you have known about it for some time, you will benefit from the constructive and important information included in this segment.
Listener note: This is Part 3 of this series, and if you are finding this program through our archive directory, iTunes or Stitcher Radio, it is advised you begin with program 1 and follow the podcasts in their original order.

Can Religion Impact Divorce?
No matter your religion, have you considered how your religious beliefs impact your civil divorce? Whether you are Jewish, Muslim, or Christian, you might wonder how a “Get” or “Mahr” might be reflected in your separation agreement. We explore the impact of a religious divorce on a civil divorce. What does this mean for individuals who have a strong faith base in their religion and want to follow those beliefs into their divorce. After all, when they got married, they were able to incorporate the customs and traditions into their marriage, but what does this mean for divorce.
Our guest, Fareen Jamal is a lawyer at Bales Beall LLP, practicing in the areas of Matrimonial, Estate and Civil Litigation. And has recently been nominated for the Ontario Bar Association's Heather McArthur Young Lawyer's Award. Fareen is an opinion leader on religious and cultural issues and divorce. The issues and complexities are far reaching. With North American increasing diversity, family legal services that have historically been designed to cater to middle-class North-American Caucasian families with a European heritage, must be refined and re-evaluated to better meet the needs of a changing population. Individuals may have very different notions of “family” in this diverse and pluralistic society, which impacts the family law system and its capacity to address family disputes.
Fareen helps us understand how your religious beliefs and customs may be a part of the Separation Agreement.
We explore:What is a "Get", "Agunah" and "Mamzer "? The meaning of a “Mahr”, “Maher”, “Mohr”, “Mehr”, and “Kafala” The different schools of thought in Islam and their impact on divorce What is the structure of the mahr – how is it enforced? What if the agreement was struck in one country, and the divorce begun in another country?
The issues are controversial and complex. This is further complicated in no-fault divorce jurisdictions. Courts may enforce mahr agreements irrespective of who initiated the divorce, or why, as the mahr agreements typically contain no reference to the different forms of divorce. Or, what happens when the husband doesn’t want to give his wife a get?

Last Chance Marriage Fix
It's been said that Immature love is loving someone for what they do right; mature love is loving someone is spite of what they do wrong. In this episode of The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch, Dr. Mark Goulston joins us to discuss the potential for fixing relationships.
Dr. Goulston offers an approach to therapy that is accessible and doesn't require deep thinking or deep insights to be effective. Mark Goulston, Ph.D. is one of America’s top psychiatrists, and specializes in helping people to get through to anybody, anywhere, anytime. He’s the best selling author of six books including the #1 international best seller, "Just Listen" Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone. He’s often appears on TV and in print. Appearances include: Oprah, CNN, The Today Show, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune and many other media outlets.Dr. Goulston discusses his extraordinary program on fixing your marriage and rebuilding your relationship.
There is so much to learn, and if you follow Dr. Goulston's advice, before you know it, you will be holding hands, and your friends will ask “ what happened to you?” As partners learn the skills to effectively deal with disagreements, disappointments and upsets and make things better without making them worse, each develops emotional toughness, self-respect and self-esteem. Add to that effective conflict-resolution skills and tools derived from mindfulness and positive psychology, and any motivated couple can move to a shared future that more than makes up for any emotional baggage they may still have from their genes and upbringing.

What is Alternative Dispute Resolution?
People who need family lawyers are different from people who need other types of lawyers. If you are going through a separation or divorce, or if you need help with child custody or access, child or spousal support, or a children’s aid society issue, your case is about your life.
The lawyer you choose, and how the separation agreement is settled will also determine how amicable or adversarial the divorce process is, once again impacting your life. In this episode of The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch, family law lawyer, John Schuman helps us understand the differences between all of the Alternative Dispute Resolutions to consider when coming to a separation agreement.

Hope Springs - Can You Keep Your Relationship Alive?
Happy New Year from Single Again! Now What?! Lesley is in Ohio for Christmas break with her son and Joanie and Steve are holding court in this episode.
As Steve continues his path of being recently single, he finds himself asking many questions, such as, Why do relationships break up so quickly? Why don't we try harder to honor our vows and Why do we seem to live in a throw away society when it comes to the ones we once loved?
Steve references the movie he recently saw titled "Hope Springs". The movie tells the story of a middle-aged couple attending an intense, week-long counseling session to work on their relationship after thirty years of marriage. Communication is the key to staying in healthy relationship, and Steve wonders how we can believe what any wife, husband or lover says when months or years later, they seem to forget their vows.

Needy and Clingy People
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., we discuss needy and clingy personality types. Have you been with this type of person or was it you that displayed these traits?
Neediness Pushes People Away: When the relationship is no longer in the “whirlwind romantic” stage, you may feel the need to cling too much in order to maintain what you had. “What’s wrong?” “I feel like you are not there.” Anxiety occurs because you sense a change, but you may be responding to something completely normal. It’s a burden to have to deal with a clingy lover. “Everything is fine.” Will you just stop it?” The irony is that as you push your concerns forward, you partner may just decide it is too much to deal with.
And if you're the clingy person and you are involved with a narcissist, this can turn explosive. There is no shame to admit that you are too clingy. And there are usually good reasons why you became that way; like anxieties in early childhood. Good relationships are worth a lot, so if you’ve got a tendency to be too needy, do something about it. Work on overcoming the wounds of the past, and make better relationships in the future.
While it’s fine to test the temperature of a relationship, be aware that your neediness may undermine a stable bond between you and your partner. And, if you are that partner, you may want to listen to this show and have some empathy. There’s a lot that can be done to keep your love fresh, with the help of counseling.

What You Need to Know About Real Estate During Divorce
Many people transitioning through a divorce want to distance themselves from the other party as quickly as possible and this can result in poor, and ultimately expensive, mistakes. Prematurely paying off joint credit cards, selling personal property, and buying or selling real estate are some examples that require extreme caution prior to the final settlement.
Buying a new home is a common first step to cleanse a person of the divorce experience. They want to leave the marital home and strike out on their own, make a fresh start and solidify their independence. What better way to express their new situation than to create an oasis in the form of a new home.
Divorce Real Estate Specialist, Joan Rogliano joins us to discuss the up and downside of real estate during divorce. Divorce Consultant, Deborah Moskovitch joins the show as well adding her expert opinion. If you are going through the process of divorce and own real estate, this is a "must hear" show.

Happy Holidays from the Single Again! Now What? posse!
On this episode, Joanie, Lesley and Steve talk about custody issues divorced couples face during the holidays. Lesley's ex is choosing to be out of state and away from his son for Christmas in order to spend time with a new love interest.

This is the first show recorded from the new DSR studio, as Steve has recently moved and took the studio with him. Since Steve left everything to his wife after their divorce three years ago and has been living in a furnished place since, this entailed buying EVERYTHING new for the new place, an exhausting and expensive task that many find themselves doing after leaving a marriage and starting over.
The conversation turns to e-Dating services and the trio share their experiences with this. Joanie has been there, done that, Steve is just checking it out, and Lesley is far too busy to consider it at this time. So can true love really be found on-line? Stay tuned.

On this episode of Sex After Divorce with Juliana Neiman, we discuss sexual indiscretions.
Infidelity happens in relationships for many different reasons. Some feel they aren't receiving the attention they deserve from their partner, and seek a sexual or emotional relationship elsewhere. For others, it may be something that happened out of the blue, and afterwards, left them feeling guilty and ashamed.
Some marriages head towards divorce after a partner who has had an indiscretion told their partner of their affair. The question is, if you are in a relationship and had an affair, realized it was a mistake, and vow to never do it again, should you tell your partner? You might be surprised with Juliana's answer.

Can Hormones Play a Role in Divorce?
Is possible that your hormones could have played a role in the demise of your marriage? Dr. Edward Lichten believes that many relationship problems can be directly traced to hormone imbalances.
Did your sex life with your ex cease to exist ? Did you find yourself having an affair because you weren't getting your needs met at home? Did the personality of your ex drastically change from the person you fell in love with? Do you find your sex drive has diminished? Have you lost energy, focus and your zest for life? If you answered to more than one of these questions, and are in your late 30's and beyond, there is a chance a hormonal imbalance could be part of the problem.
Dr. Lichten is the author of the Textbook of Bio-Identical Hormones and a leading researcher in the field of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). He joins us along with two of his patients and explains the hormonal connection that can be attributed to married couples falling out of love and into divorce. In this program, you'll learn how a simple visit to an anti-aging specialist can improve your health and enhance future relationships.

Alternative Dispute Resolution - A More Peaceful Way to Divorce
From The Family Support Expo in Toronto, Canada, Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck features attorneys Lorne Fine and Stephanie Pasternak to discuss a more peaceful way to divorce.
It's called Alternative dispute resolution, or ADR, and it has become very popular in recent years as the delay and expense associated with a divorce trial has encouraged lawyers and litigants to seek alternatives to divorce court. In alternative dispute resolution, parties typically engage the services of a neutral third party to help them resolve a divorce settlement without litigation.
There are a number of advantages to alternative dispute resolution. It typically costs less, can be resolved more quickly and is usually less hostile than litigation. By choosing a method of alternative dispute resolution, you may eliminate stress and hardship on all parties involved.

Anger Management - Dealing with Anger Issues in Relationshiips
It's normal to get angry from time-to-time, but what happens when you or a partner lose control and anger turns to rage? In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, Latchman Narain, director-founder of the Anger Management Centre, joins us and helps decode anger and stress issues that can tear relationships apart.
Many people believe that they can control others by using excessive anger and that this is a permanent solution to an issue. However, this only causes deeper problems in the long run. Sooner or later, the person who is being controlled will rebel in one way or another, which will, of course, negatively impact the relationship.
In this program, we explore whether anger issues can be a result of something that happened during our childhood. Latchman offers insight on how to gain control over anger and offers hope for those seeking help. By learning to communicate with "solution talk," as opposed to "problem talk," disagreements with a partner become more productive and less confrontational.
By learning to recognize the signs of anger issues, and with the tools to deal with them, we can learn to communicate in much healthier ways.
What to do when your partner gets angry
What's happening in an angry person's brain?
Are angry people self-centered?
How thought patterns can contribute to anger
How therapy can help
And much more.

The Voice of a Child - Protecting Children During Divorce
This is the first in a series of programs recorded at The Family Support Expo, in Toronto, Canada, in October of 2012. Congratulations to Stephen Rosenfield for delivering a great show!
In this program, attorney John Schuman joins Steve Peck to discuss the voice of a child during divorce.
Divorcing is tough enough, but add children to the mix, and divorce just got more complicated. Some parents get so caught up in the drama of divorce that they forget to think about how their children might be processing this restructuring of their families.
Protecting our children's innocence should be the priority when divorcing, and this program will help you gain insight into what your children might be experiencing, regardless of their ages. In this discussion, Mr. Schuman also provides valuable advice to parents, especially those in high-conflict situations.
Topics in the program include:
Always remember, your children are watching you and how you handle your divorce. They will face their own conflicts in life, and, in many cases, model the behavior they witnessed in you. Be the best role model you can be during this very tough time. Your kids deserve it.

The Family Support Expo Offers the Upside to Divorce
On this episode of The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch, our guest Stephen Rosenfield http://familysupportexpo.com and http://rosenfieldmediation.com is paying it forward. Stephen is using his work as a Mediator and making a difference – with his mediation practice and the launch of The Family Support Expo in Toronto, Canada on October 20/21, 2012.
Whether it is a medical health issue, a mental health issue or a transitional issue, these considerations are often stigmatized within society. We have learned to hide our problems to avoid rejection and ridicule. But concealing our problems only makes them worse.
Nobody is perfect, and everyone experiences challenges from time to time. You may not be struggling with one of these issues, but you definitely know someone who is.
If you’re going through a separation or divorce, you are not alone. 40% - 50% (statistics vary depending on where you live) of couples are just like you. Separation and divorce could be the largest or second largest expense in your lifetime. Parents rarely do well if their children struggle, and children rarely do well if their parents struggle. There are many new considerations and circumstances and we appreciate that you need resolution on all fronts.
Topics in this program include:
• The benefits of The Family Support Expo – the exhibitors, speakers, giveaways and more.
• The $24,000 dilemma.
• Considerations to developing a parenting plan when your child has ADHD, special needs or mental health issues.
• How depression and mental health affects the family dynamic.
• Eldercare and divorce.
• Helping the world to be a better place.
• How your mediation impacts future generations.
• Going forward fairly in mediation.
This interview covers issues to mediate like you’ve never heard before, and one that should be on your download list!

What Makes Us Crazy During Divorce and The Need to Protect Your Children
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce, with Mark Banschick, M.D., we discuss what it is about divorce that makes seemingly "normal" people behave in crazy, and even violent, ways?
Dr. Banschick explains that it's quite common for divorcing individuals to feel like they are the victim. This can even be the case for people who have had an affair, because they might see the reason they did so was that their partner wasn't paying attention to them.
When relationships go wrong, your partner might be pushing all of your hot buttons, setting you off into a rage to the point of verbal or domestic violence. We'll explore the role control and narcissistic behavior can play in this harmful behavior during divorce.
Above all, divorcing couples should put their children first and protect their innocence by not dragging them into their relationship problems. It is vital that you learn to manage your emotions in order to avoid verbal and physical abuse and manipulation, for the sake for your children and your own peace of mind.

On our show today we had the great pleasure of speaking with founder of Life’s Permissionslip.com life and business coach Michael Tertes!

It took Michael 10 years to do what he knew in his heart was his life’s mission and that was to serve others by becoming a coach. And what a coach he is! Lesley has worked with Michael as he is primarily an entrepreneur coach but so much of what he teaches relates to the emotional side of being human and single again!

Keeping Intimacy Alive in Relationships
At the time many couples decide to divorce, the intimacy in their relationship had subsided years ago. This process can erode slowly to the point where many don't even notice it happening until it's too late.
Intimacy includes sex but is much more than that. Intimacy is about being emotionally close to your partner, about being able to let your guard down, and let him or her know how you really feel. Intimacy is also about being able to accept and share in your partner's feelings, about being there when he/she wants to let their defenses down.
So why does intimacy fade and can the flame be rekindled? Many affairs are the result of intimacy dying in a relationship, and then finding someone else that makes them feel more important, loved and understood than their own partner.
In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck from The Divorce Expo in Chicago, Rev. Dr. Gary A. Williams and his wife Greta join the program to discuss how to co-create successful, intimate relationships. They bring a new insight into love and marriage and offer and alternative to divorce.

Daughters of Divorce
Today on Single Again! Now What? with Joanie & Steve, Terry Gaspard, of www.MovingPastDivorce.com, joins us to discuss her mission of helping women who grew up in divorced homes make healthy choices in their relationships. (Steve helps represent for the male audience as well.)
Terry and her daughter, Tracy Clifford, are both daughters of divorce. Together, they started their website because they believe that many women struggle silently and needlessly through divorce.
Many daughters of divorce have trouble trusting their partners, fear their relationships will not succeed, and struggle with issues related to self-worth. A history of divorce in a girl’s childhood can predict ambivalence towards commitment in intimate relationships. With respect to divorce proneness, women whose parents divorced are more likely to enter marriage with lower confidence in the future of their marriage, potentially raising their risk of divorce.
Even though divorce no longer carries its old stigma in our culture, it still hurts as much as ever. While people’s reasons for divorcing vary, there are many emotions and transitions that have to be dealt with as family members rebuild their lives. Recent evidence has demonstrated that divorced individuals have higher rates of depression, lower levels of life satisfaction, and more health problems than married people. Terry shares her personal story of dealing with divorce and tells how their new website is helping women and daughters of divorce.

Change Your Life with Inner Bonding
On today's program, Steve's guest is Dr. Margret Paul, co-founder of INNER BONDING, the complete process of self-healing anxiety, depression, addictions and relationships.
Margaret holds a Ph.D. in psychology and is a relationship expert, noted public speaker, workshop leader, educator, and artist. She has appeared on many radio and TV shows, including the Oprah show and has successfully worked with thousands of individuals and couples, and shares how Inner Bonding can help you create the life you deserve.
Inner Bonding offers a complete self-healing process that has not been offered by either psychology or religion. People are recognizing that life is empty without the spiritual dimension, but religion has not always provided that.
Inner Bonding differentiates between love intended to get and love intended to give, between power over others and power within self. It provides a much-needed process for moving out of fear and into love, out of the need to control and into trust, so you can weather the storms of everyday life and embrace the sacred privilege of life on this planet.
If you are struggling with issues of aloneness, emptiness, depression, self-esteem, anger, or violence; addiction problems including weight problems and food addiction, drug and alcohol addiction, relationship, love and sex addiction; personal issues including childhood physical, sexual, emotional and spiritual abuse; shame, lack of motivation and goal achievement, this is a "must hear", life changing program!

Healthcare Privacy During Divorce
Privacy rights of your health information are well established within the healthcare community. Doctors, nurses and pharmacists know that you have a right to privacy of your health information. However, there's a GAP, a loop whole if you will, and something that HIPAA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) does not address – and that happens in many walks of life – in particular divorce court.
You may be surprised to learn that the privacy of your health information is not protected when it is inappropriately used in divorce court by your spouse and their attorneys. The first step is being aware of the problem, the second step is taking initiative to control the inappropriate use of health information for yourself and that of your children.
In the episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck from The Divorce Expo in Chicago, Medical Business Associates founder, Rebecca Saltiel Busch joins us to discuss our healthcare rights and explains why we need to be our own health advocate. Rebecca is also an accomplished author and educator. With over 200 publications and presentations, Rebecca has presented to universities, large corporations, government entities, associations, financial institutions, and small businesses. Her passion - to create educated, conscientious healthcare consumers - is reflected in her works, including her latest book Personal Healthcare Portfolio - a survival guide to the complex healthcare market.

Unfaithful, on The Oprah Winfrey Network, Wants You!
On this edition of Single Again! Now What?, Joanie and Steve take another look at infidelity in relationships. Some couples find a way to work through the hurt and pain and stay together, while for others, divorce is the only option.
The producer of Unfaithful, on The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), met Steve at The Divorce Expo in Chicago and asked us to reach out to any of our listeners that would be willing to share their story of infidelity for an upcoming episode of Unfaithful - Season #3 on OWN. Whether you were able to save your relationship or not isn't the point, it's the journey that either brought you back together or tore a once loving relationship apart. We believe we can learn from others, and if you are willing to be featured on an upcoming episode and share your story, Steve will provide information on how to do so at the end of the show.

Dealing with the Pain of Divorce
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., we discuss pain. Whether physical or through something like divorce, pain is a force to be reckoned with.
Dr. Banschick shares his personal story of a recent back injury that left him incapable of doing things he used to take for granted, such as walking, showering, or making a cup of coffee. Dr. Banschick talks about the Stoics. Stoicism was founded in Athens by Zeno of Citium in the early3rd century BC. The Stoics taught that destructive emotions resulted from errors in judgment, and that a sage, or person of "moral and intellectual perfection," would not suffer such emotions. Said another way, Stoics believed that bad things can happen to good people and that life can be unfair.
Getting through the pain of illness or divorce
Learning to value what you have, not what you've lost
The Spirituality of pain
Thinking twice before you move once

Our Worst Show Ever on Single Again! Now What?
Welcome to the usually fun and fantastic Single Again! Now What! with Joanie, Lesley and Steve!
While most shows have been fun and fantastic, this one was hard to get through. Perhaps the moon and stars were in the wrong sector, whatever that means, or perhaps the Single Again! crew were just off. Bottom line, I'm not sure we would listen to this program ourselves. The show is so bad that Joanie decided to offer the first listener capable of making it to the end a special one hour session with her. (Sorry, to hear the details, you have to actually listen to the whole damn program.)

Achieving Post Divorce Happiness
Join in on the conversation and hear Deborah Moskovitch and Steve Peck discuss your steps to finding post divorce happiness post divorce. We recognize that life isn’t always easy being single and on your own. But, it doesn’t have to be filled with loneliness, sadness and boredom. There are ways to build your post divorce happy outlook.
Deborah discusses her trials and tribulations as she shares her healing journey to finding her happy spot, and living life on her terms. My view of myself changed astronomically after my divorce. No longer part of a couple, I felt different, rattling around in my social circle with nothing to ground me in events. I was lost, as my world had been based on couples—it seemed that I had lost my identity.
But I soon realized that life would just pass me by if I identified myself with who I was—as part of a married couple, versus who I could be—a fabulous single woman.
Listen in to find out what you can do too……to feel comfortable in your own skin, and seeking happiness in the right relationship. We explore a lot of ideas you won’t want to miss.

Intimacy & Trust after Divorce
In this episode of Sex after Divorce with Juliana Neiman our topic is Intimacy & Trust.
Juliana helps us understand the true meaning of intimacy. Intimacy is emotional, spiritual and physical at the same time. By showing trust in our partner, we open ourselves to a more intimate relationship.
Building trust is one of the most important aspects of any relationship, especially romantic or intimate relationships. But as important as trust is to the healthy functioning of these relationships, too many people just go through the motions, roll the dice and hope that trust emerges. If you want real trust in your relationship you simply have to work at building it. But how do you go about doing this?
Should you share you past with a new love interest?
Should you share your past sexual experiences?

Creative Mediation with a Twist
We welcome back our guest, Mark Baer (http://www.markbaeresq.com/), a family law attorney, mediator, and collaborative law practitioner in Pasadena, California and who has been practicing for twenty years. Mark shares his opinions and views about the family law system, how it can be better and provide more creative ways on getting through divorce. Deborah Moskovitch, Steve Peck and Mark explore a variety of concepts regarding mediation. This program isn’t just a standard outline of mediation, but shakes it up a little in this controversial and lively discussion.
How do you think outside the box in mediation? Mark Baer encourages you to ponder as we discuss:
• The way in which bias impacts family law litigation
• Why “evaluative mediation” is not really mediation, even though most lawyers and judicial officers believe otherwise
• Whether family law attorneys should have higher ethical obligations than other attorneys
• Funding your children’s college/university education when child support isn’t enough or stops
• What money represents
There seems to be a major disconnect between the way the public views mediation and how the attorneys and judicial officers view as mediation. This is a conversation that is steeped in controversy.

Emotional & Sexual Building Blocks - Pt. 3
Sex therapist, Juliana Neiman, returns for the third and final segment of Emotional and Sexual Building Blocks on Sex after Divorce on Divorce Source Radio.
Juliana speaks to the importance of rebuilding self-esteem after divorce and explains that we should feel deserving of love. Clearly the most widely-used approach to divorce recovery, the “rebuilding” model makes the process healthier and less traumatic for those who are divorcing or divorced — and their children.
Juliana provides some time tested principles written about in Dr. Bruce Fisher's book, Rebuilding when Your Relationship Ends. Over two decades of research and practice are combined with feedback from hundreds of thousands of men and women who have used the book on their own or in one of thousands of Fisher divorce recovery seminars worldwide. Juliana believes this book and understanding your building blocks, can transform your life for the better.
Trusting your partner with love & sex
Openness with your partner
Topics in this final segment include:

Joanie talks about how your inner voice can affect your life as well as how our parents influence our inner voice or what we believe to be true- mental fiction. Lesley shares how great it feels to clean out one of her old rooms (old memories) and redecorate for her new life moving forward. Sports stadium and airline seat size... ridiculous!

FREE Divorce Support Group Call June 19th on Loneliness and Isolation
We're pleased to announce a FREE divorce support group telephone call taking place June 19th from 8:00 - 9:30pm Eastern Standard Time.
Leading the call is Divorce Coach Karen McMahon, a frequent contributor to Divorce Source Radio. Steve Peck is encouraging all DSR listeners to attend this free call.
The call topic is Loneliness and Isolation. Loneliness is not just about your marriage ending, it is about all the aspects of your life that change. You are separating from your partner of many years and that by itself can lead to loneliness. But because your entire life is structured around your marriage, it impacts all your relationships. Going from a married couple to a single person affects your relationships with your family, in-laws, friends and most social circles that you have enjoyed during your married life. Finding yourself suddenly single can feel alien and isolating.

From Healthy to Horny
Okay, the show title is just plain dumb, but you try writing better. When Joanie, Lesley and Steve get together on Single Again! Now What?, the subjects change faster than a speeding bullet.
This show begins with a discussion on control freaks and quickly shifts into what chores some women have to do and Steve feels isn't right. (He's kind of old school.) The trio then shifts into healthy eating and the organic produce guidelines. Do you know how to tell the difference of true organic produce in stores based on the little sticker? And who's great idea was it to place a sticker on every piece of fruit?
So that's the health part of the show title. As for the horny, Lesley tells the story of a woman who has a "friend with benefits" relationship because he's "the best lover ever!" And where did he get his sexual knowledge... from a friggin book. (Steve claims he wrote the book... whatever.)
The show ends on an up-note with how to follow your heart and live your dream. So enjoy the ride and stop by the Single Again! Now What? Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/SingleAgainNowWhat.

When Selling The Divorce House Include The Children
Don't shove the children into the corner with the idea you are protecting them from the horrors of divorce when selling the marital home, you are not.
The children will start asking questions at this point (after some crying); one will certainly be about the home. Assuming you are going to sell the home, turn the conversation into something positive and reassuring. Tell them you will be inviting a realtor (specialist I hope!) over soon and you would like for them to be with you and ask questions.

How Your Brain Can Make Divorce Smarter
Did you know that your brain can help you through divorce in a much smarter, more emotionally balanced way? There is tremendous scientific knowledge about the brain yet the legal system is slow at integrating it.
Our guest, Nathalie Boutet (http://www.basmansmith.com/i3boutet.asp) (http://www.collaborativelawblog.ca/about-nathalie-boutet) explains what we have known for years – that our cognitive abilities diminish when we are experiencing strong emotion. Separating clients are frequently in a state of high emotions stemming from years of unhappiness in their marriage. They are likely to encounter many instances when they will get emotionally triggered during which time their ability to think and reason will be diminished. Yet we demand that separating parents co-parent effectively and work together amicably to resolve complex financial decisions.
Separating families, and especially the children, the innocent victims, suffer tremendously before, during and after the legal separation process.
How can you get through your divorce with the brain in mind? Ms. Boutet answers this question and more as we discuss:Some of the causes of divorce and how the brain is affected If people are struggling and don’t want to divorce, what can they do? What makes a divorce easier/more difficult How does brain science intersect with family law? What are some of the pitfalls that people fall into– and what happens
This interview will help you understand how to bring in the humanity while divorcing all while being brain friendly. Sounds intriguing doesn’t it…..it’s an conversation you don’t want to miss.

What Does It Mean to Love Yourself?
On this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, Karen McMahon is back to help us understand what it means to love ourself. Self love is vital if we are to be loved in this world. If you have been living in a loveless marriage, you have not been getting what you need from your spouse… and what have you been giving yourself?
For many, it's hard to tell the difference between selfless, selfish and self-love. If your tendency has been to put other’s needs before yours, self love is neither easy nor comfortable. It often comes with feelings of guilt, fear and selfishness.
You need to be clear on the difference between selfish and self loving so that you can stand firm in your desire to be healthy and be able to explain / defend your actions to your loved ones. Oscar Wilde put it beautifully, “To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance”

The Leon Walker Case
The Leon Walker case has received national attention as a landmark case related to email privacy issues. Leon Walker Faces felony charges and up to 5-years in prison for reading his wife's emails.
Expert pundits on CNN have debated this case and many feel there is no merit to the charges, especially at a felony level. Leon Walker provided an exclusive interview with Divorce Source Radio's Steve Peck. This show provides a window into what Leon Walker has endured since being charged with the crime in 2011. Leon tells his version of the story and noted author and forensic trial consultant, Dean Tong, helps us sort through the legal maneuvers the prosecutor and defense might be considering.
Mr. Walker has been financially devastated and his life has been turned upside down due the charges filed against him. Does the county prosecuting the case really want to spend close to $500,000 of taxpayers' money to lock this man up for reading his wife's email? Mr. Walker claims he did so for the well-being of his kids. He had reason to believe the children were being subjected to a potentially abusive situation as his wife was seeing an ex with an abusive past.

Blended Families Part 1 - The Not So Blended Family
(Listener Note: This is part one of a three-part series. To find the other episodes, search "Intelligent Divorce" from the Divorce Source Radio "search" bar.)
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., we begin a three part series on Blended Families.
Stepfamilies, also known as blended families, are more of a norm now than ever, with 65% of remarriages including children from previous relationships. When families “blend” to create stepfamilies, though, things rarely progress smoothly. Some children may resist the many changes they face, while parents may become frustrated or disappointed when the new family doesn’t function like their previous family.
While changes to family structure require some adjustment time for everyone involved, with the right guidance and realistic expectations, most blended families are able to work out their growing pains and live together successfully. Open communication, positive attitudes, mutual respect, and plenty of love and patience all have an important place in creating a healthy blended family.

Be Smart About Mediation
Understanding what mediation is as a process, and finding the right mediator, are critical elements to developing a smart and long lasting parenting and financial agreements that are predicated on informed, thoughtful decision making. A good mediator will discuss what your goals are for the process, what is important to each of you and will help you to craft a plan that addresses those goals and intentions. This is important to understand, as all mediators are not created equal!
Our guest, Cara Raich, (http://www.srmediators.com/mediators/cara-raich-esq/) (http://mediatetrix.wordpress.com/ explores the specifics of mediation in this episode of The Smart Divorce, with Deborah Moskovitch and Steve Peck. Cara is a mediator and attorney who specializes in helping people find non-adversarial resolutions to conflict. She mediates a wide range of cases including divorce, family conflicts, and organizational and civil disputes.
Cara is dedicated to helping her clients avoid the challenges and acrimony that frequently accompany adversarial proceedings. She does this by enabling her clients to come to realistic and informed agreements that work for them and their families. Cara believes that separation and divorce are family matters with a legal element, not a lawsuit that happens to be about a family.
To understand how these goals are accomplished in a fair and reasonable manner – and gain perspectives on alternative ways to view mediation and settlement we discuss:What does neutrality really mean? What are the process choices that people have when contemplating divorce? How do we as a society view divorce? What is a successful divorce? What is the role the law will play in your divorce? Is the law relevant, determinative or something in between?
This interview will surely help you understand the many aspects of mediation.

Make the Most of Visitation Time
Regular communication between you and your ex will help to make your co-parenting more successful. Communicating clearly is hard work.

In this episode of "Ask Henry" on Divorce Source Radio, Attorney Henry Gornbein addresses the topic of Parenting Time, formerly known as Visitation.
Successful Do's for Co-Parenting - Making The Most of Your Time with Your KidsFocus on common goals. Work together to resolve problems involving your child.

Food and Eating Disorders During Divorce
Food plays an important role in our lives, as both sustainment and enjoyment. When going through a divorce, many people's eating habits change. Some people are so depressed, they don't feel like eating at all. Others look at food as something that comforts, and they find themselves over-eating as a means of feeling better.
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., we unwrap the truth about food and eating disorders. Eating disorders are one of the psychiatric illnesses that result in a number of medical complications, such as electrolyte imbalances, osteoporosis, and dental problems, as well as the many diseases related to obesity.

The Legal AND Emotional Side of Divorce
In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, Attorney Henry Gornbein and Therapist Susan Pease Gadoua discuss the legal and emotional side of divorce.
When people enter into divorce, it seems it's all about the legal aspect. We soon realize that divorce is an extremely emotional time in our lives. If one or both of the parties have a controlling mindset, the situation can become more hostile, potentially leading to a lengthy, destructive, and unnecessarily expensive divorce process. Tempers flare, heels dig in, and none of it leads to satisfaction in the end.
Susan shares tips on how to navigate your divorce in a more peaceful manner and shows the value of therapy. Henry provides advice on dealing with an attorney who is trying to stir the pot between you and your ex. Susan reminds us of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, which suggests that people are motivated to fulfill basic needs before moving on to other, more advanced, needs. If you're worried about your survival, it's hard to get to a place of love. If safety and esteem are an issue, you can't get to self-actualization.
This is a "must hear" for any of our listeners new to the process of divorce. For more on Susan Pease Gadoua, visit: www.SusanPeaseGadoua.com, and for Henry Gornbein, visit: www.Family Law of Michigan.com. (This program was recorded at The Divorce Expo in Novi, Michigan).…

Is Your Ex a Narcissist or Just an Asshole?
Narcissism used to be recognized as a mental disorder, according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DMS, Manual. In the revised DMS-Five edition, narcissism will no longer be considered a mental disorder, prompting the question, "If my ex isn't a certifiable narcissist, is he/she just an asshole?" Are these labels one and the same?
Dr. Banschick breaks it down for us and explains narcissism as we once knew it. He then explains how one may not be a narcissist, but rather, a selfish, self-centered asshole. If you think you have been dealing with this type of person, this is a show for you.

Learning to Get Along With Your Ex for Your Children's Well-Being
One of the most challenging things about divorcing with children is dealing with your ex. For some in high conflict divorces, this is an impossibility. The goal is to keep the lines of communication open for the sake of your children.

Dealing with Fear During Divorce
In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, divorce coach Karen McMahon joins us to discuss Fear During Divorce.
With all the changes that are happening at once, it's like the ground beneath our feet is shifting and moving. Suddenly what lies ahead is unknown. During fear, our "what if’s" are never positive. What if I lose custody, can’t afford the house, don’t have enough money to live on, cannot find a job…
In fear, we begin to distort reality. Much like a circus mirror, fear leaves us seeing only a distorted view of our reality. Karen helps us understand where our distorted ‘fear reality’ comes from and offers hope and a healthier way of looking at our current situation.

Kids Need Their Fathers, During and After Divorce
One of the sad realities of divorce and the outcome is fatherlessness. In this episode of The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch, we discuss the need for fathers to stay involved in their kids lives, especially during and after divorce.
It is more common for father’s relationships to be thinned out more than mothers. While a lot of attention and research has focused on single-parent families where the parent is the mother, limited attention has focused on single-parent families where the father is the parent. Single-father families are a small, but growing segment of our society. But what happens when dads aren't involved?
Deborah Moskovitch and Steve Peck explore this issue, and help provide an understanding of fatherlessness, while providing ideas for staying connected.
Did you know:Up to 25% of children do not see their father by 2-3 years after divorce Daughters that do not have a relationship with their father are more likely to have long term emotional issues – are more promiscuous and less likely to graduate from high school and college; while sons are more likely to exhibit delinquent behavior 80% of the daughters and sons in the U.S. only live with their fathers for a maximum of 10 to 15 percent of the time after their parents divorce
Tune in to discover what can be done and how you can overcome these obstacles. There’s been research that shows when fathers are more involved in their kids’ lives -- they are less likely to divorce themselves.

Dr. Ehrlich has a sub-specialty in divorce-related consultation and treatment and has worked with high-conflict divorces for over 20 years and provides therapy, mediation, parent coordination, and custody evaluations.

(This program was recorded at TDE 2012.)
Topics in the program include:Is there a better age for a child to learn about divorce? At what point should you tell the kids about your divorce?

The Upbeat Dad Organization - Empowering Dads & Supporting Families
This episode was recorded at TDE 2012 and features Rodrick Walters of The Upbeat Dad Organization based out of Miami, Florida. This is a great program for ALL dads to listen to and moms as well. If you know a father who's not being all he can be for the sake of his kids, please share this program with them.
Rodrick went through a devastating divorce in the early 2000s.

Some dads lose touch with their children due to the circumstances of their divorce and Rodrick encouraged dads to stay involved in the lives of their children.
Marital separation and divorce are challenging but they do not have to be destructive. With the Upbeat Dad approach, fathers can stay connected with their children and have a powerful impact in their life. This program is about manning up to be a good father. Our kids need us in their lives and we need them in ours.

Does Your Life Have Purpose & Meaning? - How Relationships Work
On this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., Dr. James Hollis joins us and provides insight into our lives and relationships.
James Hollis, Ph.D., taught Humanities for 26 years in various colleges and universities before retraining as a Jungian analyst at the Jung Institute of Zurich, Switzerland. He is a licensed Jungian analyst in private practice, in Houston, Texas, where he is also Executive Director of the Jung Educational Center of Houston. Dr. Hollis has published eleven books with total sales well over 100,000 copies, the most recent being Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life (Gotham Books/Penguin).
What is your life's purpose, and does it have meaning? What happens when we get off purpose? Dr. Hollis helps us understand how we can be our worst enemy. Much of our current unrest can be attributed to our experiences as children and young adults. The paradox is that the adaptations that were necessary during childhood often stand as the imprisoning behaviors and values later in life.
Have you ever asked yourself the question, "If I'm doing all the right things, why doesn't it feel right inside?" How do we inherit our past, and how is it affecting our current life? These questions, as well as thoughts on marriage and relationships, are discussed in this episode.…

The Role Hormones Play in Relationships, Health & Your Life
So how are you feeling post divorce? How's your energy, weight or mood? If you're feeling in a funk, it may be more than just your divorce, it could be a hormone imbalance.
As we age, both men and women's hormone levels change. This can result in depression, weight loss/gain, and reduced mental acuity. The loss of healthy hormone levels in women account for their menopause and the reduction of male hormones can cause andropause in men. Women don't have to suffer through menopause and men don't have to suffer depression and erectile dysfunction.
Balanced hormone levels in couples can equal a closer, loving bond, and in this episode of Single Again! Now What?, world renowned anti aging physician, Dr. Edward Lichten, joins the show to tell us why.
Joanie, Lesley and Steve talk to Dr. Lichten about:Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) The health benefits of healthy hormone levels The ill effects of declining hormone levels How hormones can increase your sex drive The risks of HRT Our toxic environment And more.
Have You Suffered Trauma?

We're going to discuss the most common form, Complex Trauma, and see how it can creep into our relationships. Complex trauma can occur as a result of domestic violence or from suffering a trauma at an early age and now in adulthood, issues trigger past trauma. So the question is, have you been traumatized and if so, is there treatment available?
Once you recognize your triggers you can begin the process of detoxifying the trauma. Dr. Banschick believes that traumas can be treated with much success and offers hope for a peaceful future.…

Learning Disabilities - Is School Helping or Hurting Children?
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., we discuss learning disabilities in children and help identify signs that a child may be in trouble. If you suspect your child is having difficulty in school due to the stress of divorce or a learning disability, it's important to get them tested and identify the problem as soon as possible.

Tap Into Reducing the Stress of Divorce
There's a new relatively new way of achieving stress reduction and it based on the same principles that have been used for thousands of years in acupuncture. It's called EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique,) and results are delivered without the needles of acupuncture. To achieve the stress-relieving benefits of EFT, all one needs to know is how to tap.
As simple as this sounds, "tapping" different parts of your body has produced remarkable clinical results of stress reduction and is used by many Major League athletes, as well as business professionals. Divorce is one of the most stressful situations we face in life, so the potential benefits from EFT could help thousands of our listeners.
In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, Brad Yates, an expert in EFT, joins us and explains how we might benefit from tapping. Brad has had the privilege and pleasure of working with a diverse group of clients, from CEOs to professional and NCAA athletes, from chiropractors and psychiatrists to corporate and federal attorneys, from award-winning actors to residents at a program for homeless men and women in Santa Monica. Brad is the author of the best-selling children's book, "The Wizard's Wish," the co-author of the best-seller, "Freedom at Your Fingertips," a featured expert in the film, “The Tapping Solution” (along with Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, Dr. Norman Shealy and Dr. Bruce Lipton,) and has been heard internationally on a number of internet radio talk shows.
Tapping is not just for adults. Our children can benefit from EFT, as well. For more information on Brad Yates, visit his website at www.BradYates.net. So, what are you waiting for? Let's get tapping!…
What's Your Love Language?
In episode #8 of Single Again! Now What?, Joanie, Lesley and Steve explore "The 5 love Languages", based around the book "The 5 Love Languages" by Dr. Gary Chapman.
After many years of counseling, Dr. Chapman noticed a pattern: everyone he had ever counseled had a “love language,” a primary way of expressing and interpreting love. He also discovered that, for whatever reason, people are usually drawn to those who speak a different love language than their own.
Of the countless ways we can show love to one another, five key categories, or five love languages, proved to be universal and comprehensive—everyone has a love language, and we all identify primarily with one of the five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.
Joanie, Lesley and Steve took the 5 Love Languages assessment on www.5LoveLanguages.com and discuss their results. The question is... what love language do you speak? You'll have a better idea by the end of this program and catch a few laughs in the process.

The Emotionally Abused Male: Does your relationship with your girlfriend or wife leave you feeling bad about yourself? Do you frequently feel misunderstood, rejected, vilified and devalued in your relationship? Do you feel trapped or stuck? Do you believe it’s possible for men to be emotionally abused by women? Believe it. It happens all the time. The stereotype of an abusive relationship is that of a man physically beating a woman. Society has yet to acknowledge the vast number of women who emotionally abuse men. In fact, the men who are being abused oftentimes don’t realize that their wife’s or girlfriend’s behavior is abusive. A listener phones in his question to Dr. Friedberg.
Parental Alienation: A listener writes Dr. Friedberg regarding her ex's attempt to alienate their children from her. She is without money or resources and is looking for guidance on how to deal with this situation.
Dealing with an Incarcerated Ex: Divorce is never easy. Imagine trying to raise your children on your own, with no help from your ex, because he is in prison for molesting your young daughter's girlfriend. Dr. Friedberg answers a difficult listener question.
If you would like to ask Dr. Friedberg a question, write us at: DivorceSourceRadio@gmail.com or phone your question into our Listener Line at (248) 686-2256. For more on Dr. Larry Friedberg, visit: www.DrLarryFriedberg.com.…

Opposites Attract and Opposites Attack
It's time for another fun and insightful program on Single Again! Now What? with Joanie Winberg, Lesley Hatfield, and Steve Peck!
In this episode, we discuss the adage, Opposites Attract. However, in many such relationships, after the attraction, the opposite personalities can seem to attack. Why do we tend to be attracted to others who are so different than us? Do they fill the void of qualities we wish we had? Even more interesting is how what we were once attracted to can later repel us.

How to Save Time, Money and Your Sanity When Going Through Divorce
The very word “divorce” conjures up fear, sadness, anger, confusion and, for some, relief. But the reality of what divorce really looks like and means with all of its implications are not always clear. With close to 50% of marriages ending in divorce, we need to better employ strategies that will keep everyone, including those caught in the middle – often the children – moving towards a better life. Divorce can be a beginning even if it looks like an end.
No matter who you are, what your finances look like, whether you have children or working through issues, divorce can be complex and complicated, but it doesn’t need to be. Almost all of us have questions, deal with problems and are faced with the myriad of concerns as we navigate the maze of divorce.
Hear Deborah Moskovitch and Steve Peck discuss the concerns and questions most of us have through divorce and the importance of making smart decisions – all with the help of The Smart Divorce Resource ToolKit.
Topics include:The emotional, legal and finances of divorce Smart Co-Parenting Rebuilding your life to build a better future Coping with divorce in the workplace Understanding workplace stress How organizations can help employees stay mindful on the job

Lies We Tell Ourselves During Divorce
Have you ever believed something negative about yourself, or felt "stuck" in life? What's the worst kind of lie? The one we tell ourselves. In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, our guests are Victoria Wynn and Laura Campbell.
Victoria and Laura both serve as successful divorce coaches, and Victoria speaks openly about the lies she had told herself after her divorce from a 16-year marriage. One of Victoria's lies was, "Because I'm a single mom of five kids, I won't find a good, devoted man to be my partner." She goes on to share the truth she ultimately learned: "Because I'm a single mom of five, I know how to love deeply, sacrifice, serve, and create unity."
Victoria created The Lies I tell Myself Project after realizing the need for a custom-tailored process that explains how to know if you're lying to yourself, and most importantly: A way to figure out what the beautiful truth about yourself really is.
Laura Campbell is an author and Divorce & Life Reinvention Coach, supporting women who want to regroup, renew and reinvent themselves before, during and after divorce. Laura has made her life one of dedication and devotion to those unsure of how to get where they really want to go... and her results are phenomenal! Together, these two women are making a difference in the lives of hundreds going through divorce.…
Is Dating after Divorce Easier for Men or Women - Single Again! Now What? - Episode #6
In this episode of Single Again! Now What?, Joanie, Lesley and Steve discuss Dating after Divorce, is it easier for men or women?
Some think it's easier for women because men flock to them, and women have the opportunity to say yes or no. Lesley talks about the discomfort of being single and alone at a restaurant or bar when guys feel that because she is alone, they have the right to approach her.
Steve doesn't see anything wrong approaching a single woman at the bar if she is not wearing a ring as long as it's done tastefully, and Joanie helps us understand why we do what we do. What would we do without Joanie?
Come along for the fun as we learn, laugh, love and give a "shout out" to Singapore on Single Again! Now What? Episode #6…
Is it Appropriate to Medicate Due to The Anxiety and Depression of Divorce?
Under guidance from a health professional, medication can relieve some of the symptoms of anxiety, but it requires non-drug treatments to produce lasting changes and continuing relief from anxiety. Medication doesn't cure the underlying problem and is usually not a long-term solution. Anxiety medications also come with side effects and safety concerns, including the risk of addiction.
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce, Mark Banschick, M.D., discusses when drug therapy is deemed appropriate, but also offers healthy alternatives such as meditation, exercise and a healthy diet. Many are surprised to learn that some natural alternatives may work as well as medication. Dr. Banschick believes each patient is unique, and therefore, what suits one patient may not work for another. This program provides options so that you can make a more informed decision regarding your mental and physical health.…

Personal Protection Orders during Divorce
A personal protection order (PPO) is an order issued by the court. In situations where there is a domestic relationship, it can protect you from harassment, assault, beating, molesting, wounding, or stalking by another person. It provides police to prevent a crime before it happens, by preventing the other person from purchasing a firearm or interfering with your daily activities. The order can also prohibit him/her from entering your premises and removing minor children unless the removal is part of a court parenting time order.
In this episode of "Ask Henry", with attorney Henry Gornbein, we take a closer look at Personal protection orders from all sides. Whether you are the one seeking the order or are on the receiving end, we cover all sides in this program.
Topics Include:How to acquire a protection order
What the order means and the legal ramifications of violating an order
What to do if an order expires and you still fear for your safety The repercussions for filing a false Protection Order What to do if you feel you are wrongly served a protection order
How to have a protection order against you dismissed How the courts view Protection Orders And much more. …
Single Again! Now What? Episode #4 - Ego
We're back with episode #4 of Single Again! Now What? with Joanie, Lesley and Steve.
Join the fun as we explore the ego and how it affects our daily life and relationships. We talk about Eckhart Tolle's books in this show, as much of his work is related to letting go of an unhealthy ego.
Nothing will kill a relationship more quickly than ego. So the next time you see your ego getting involved in your relationship, get rid of it! If you find yourself defending yourself or not allowing you to really listen, then you need to take a step back. Listen carefully to what’s really being said, and use it to create the most amazing relationship.
As usual, the show is served up with a big helping of laughter, so learn, laugh and love with Joanie, Lesley and Steve on Single Again! Now What?…
In this episode of DSR with Steve Peck, our topic is Parental Kidnapping, and our guest is Maureen Dabbagh, a Virginia Supreme Court Family Mediator specializing in cross-border child custody disputes.
Maureen has experienced Parental Kidnapping firsthand. Her three-year-old daughter was abducted from the United States and taken to the Middle East by her Syrian ex-husband. Maureen and her daughter had no communication for 17 years.
The reality of family abduction is that it is a form of child endangerment. Children abducted by family members are often forced into the nomadic, unstable lifestyle of a fugitive: They are taught to hide their real identities under a false name and to avoid and distrust law enforcement and authority figures.
Maureen is the author of "Parental Kidnapping in America: An Historical & Cultural Analysis." Through her books, practice, and public appearances, she hopes to educate those experiencing or fearing a family abduction. You can learn more about Maureen Dabbagh on her Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/maureen.dabbagh.…
Communicating Your Sexual Needs to a New Partner
In this episode of Sex after Divorce with Juliana Neiman, we discuss the importance of communicating your sexual needs to a new partner.
Communication is an important part of every healthy relationship, both in and out of the bedroom. Juliana teaches us how to communicate our sexual desires openly with our new partner and shares ways to keep the romance alive for years to come.
Communicating your needs can be done verbally or non-verbally, the important part is that you and your partner understand what each other's needs are. Common stressors such as money problems or work issues can be enemies of sexual desire and Juliana shares how to put your problems on hold, if but for a short while, so you can enjoy healthy sex and intimacy with your partner.…
Understanding Parental Alienation
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick M.D., we explore Parental Alienation with clinical and forensic psychologist, Dr. Abe Worenklien.
Parental alienation is a social dynamic, generally occurring due to divorce or separation, when a child expresses unjustified hatred or unreasonably strong dislike of one parent, making access by the rejected parent difficult or impossible. These feelings may be influenced by negative comments by the other parent and by the characteristics, such as lack of empathy and warmth, of the rejected parent.
Many people learned of parental alienation when a tape of actor, Alec Baldwin, was leaked to the press by his former wife. To the uninformed ear, Alec sounded overly harsh in a message he left to his ten-year old daughter. Alec, apologetic for his harsh words, explains his behavior as a result of the growing frustration of being a "targeted" parent in his book A Promise to Ourselves: A Journey Through Fatherhood and Divorce. (This book is available in our bookstore under the "Recommended Reading" tab).
This is a "must hear" program for any parent going through divorce and Dr. Worenkien provides insight of why a seemingly "normal" parent might attempt to drive their child away from their biological mother or father during or after divorce.…
Ten Signs Your Spouse May be Planning to Divorce You
In this episode of The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch, we discuss The Ten Signs that Your Spouse May be Planning to Divorce You.
Many times, especially in long-term relationships, spouses drift apart. They may not be having sex much, if at all, and their intimate conversations and sharing of day-to-day life experiences may cease to exist.
You would think that these signs, alone, would be enough to cause partners to wonder if their relationship was in trouble. It seems, however, that this pattern of distancing themselves was a slow, eroding process, and for some, they feel it was the normal progression of a long-term relationship.
If you and your partner have lost the connection that you once shared, it's possible that your partner has considered, or could even be planning, a divorce, without your having any knowledge of it. Deborah reveals the signs that your spouse might be seeking a divorce, as originally mentioned in The Globe and Mail article, by Tralee Pearce.…
"What can we Reasonably Expect from the Legal System During Divorce
In this episode of "Ask Henry," with attorney Henry Gornbein, our question is, "What can we reasonably expect from the legal system, including Attorneys, Judges, Friend of the Court, and Mediators?"
Henry walks us through the steps of determining what you should expect from your attorney and what you should be looking for when selecting one. The conversation then shifts to reasonable expectations for the judge overseeing your case. Judges are all different and rule as such. Another part of the family law system is the Friend of The Court, and Henry helps us understand the system.
Finally, we take a look at what you can expect from a family law mediator. The court process during divorce can be daunting, so the more you know early on, the better the possible outcome.…

In this show, one of the main topics we discuss is the need to quite our mind in order to truly connect with our "God Source" within. And then, once again, the conversation bounces back and forth and can go from serious to unbelievably silly in a New York minute.

We'd love to here your thoughts regarding this new show. Send comments, questions or suggestions to DivorceSourceRadio@gmail.com…
Identifying your Sexual Style
Couples often avoid sex because their sex life has become dissatisfying or conflictual. If talking about it is uncomfortable (and for most it is, at least a bit), avoidance can become the path of least resistance. Lack of time is often a convenient excuse. Talking about sexual concerns in a caring way and planning together for sexual revitalization can be the cure for avoidance.
Most couples can work through their sexual frustrations and miscommunications simply by learning to communicate about what is important to them and what works for them and what feels intolerable to them and why
In this episode of Sex after Divorce, Juliana Neiman provides a "statement check -list" to help us to recognize our sexual preferences. Once we have a better understanding of our sexual desires, the goal is to share our needs with our new partner in a healthy way.…
Does My Teenager Need Treatment?
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick M.D., we discuss how to tell the difference between an upset teen and a teen that needs treatment, and perhaps medication.
Teenagers are rarely easy. Normal adolescents, bless their hearts, can be moody, demanding, self centered and otherwise preoccupied at the expense of their studies or the family. When things go wrong, it can be rocky going. Depression, eating disorders, oppositional behavior and drug use are just some of the quagmires lying in the way of healthy adolescent development. Treatment can be a Godsend; even medications when appropriate can help many of the problems that teens may face.
So, do we just run to medicate an adolescent when he or she starts to show symptoms during a divorce? The side effects of medications are real, but not doing any treatment may lead to far worse.
The teenage brain is a developing organ that won't reach maturity until twenty-five or so, and the psychological roller coaster of emerging independence and sexuality can be daunting for girls and boys alike. Add a divorce (or any real stress), and figuring out what's going on psychologically can be tricky. While your adolescent may be inherently inconsistent, moody, or test limits, during a divorce there are additional pressures to deal with over which he has little control - like the dissolution of the family as he knows it, perhaps warring parents or just worries about what the future may hold.…

Understanding Narcissistic Personality Disorder
On this episode of The Intelligent Divorce, Dr. Banschick and Steve Peck speak with Dr. Andrew Klafter, director of psychotherapy training at the University of Cincinnati Residency Training Program.
Dr. Klafter has dedicated much of his research to learning more about Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition in which people have an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme preoccupation with themselves.
Before someone might be classified as being narcissistic, it is important to keep in mind that, like every psychological disorder, narcissistic personality disorder too comes in various degrees. Going to the extreme, we might argue that each of us has somewhere a narcissist in her/himself. It even could be said that a narcissistic tendency is important for survival.
However, in the same context it must be emphasized that, while a narcissistic tendency is constructive, a fully elaborated or developed symptomatic of NPD is nothing but destructive. So how do you know if your spouse or even you is a narcissist and what can you do if this is the case?
In this program, we identify what a NPD is and discuss living with and divorcing a narcissist. This is not an easy situation to deal with and turns many divorces into a "high conflict" situation requiring special attention. Dr. Klafter believes a true narcissist can be turned around through therapy and go on to have fulfilling relationships as long as they understand that they have a problem.…
How to Communicate Your Sexual Needs to a New Partner
In this episode of Sex after Divorce with Juliana Neiman, we discuss the importance of understanding your sexual needs and communicating them to your new partner.
Poor communication skills among couples is one of the main reasons many marriages fail. Although there are many important topics to communicate about in a relationship, discussing your sexual preferences early on in a new relationship can lead to a healthier and more intimate relationship.
Juliana Neiman has a wonderful way of helping us better understand our sexuality, and you may even want to listen to this program with your new partner. It is our hope that this program leads you to a better understanding of what each other's sexual needs are, and ultimately to greater intimacy.…
Spending Holidays Alone and Beginning New Traditions
Divorce Source Radio's Steve Peck has a discussion on spending the holidays alone, with DSR The Smart Divorce host, author and divorce consultant, Deborah Moskovitch.
We share our different backgrounds as we discuss Deborah's experience of being alone during Hanukkah, and Steve's during Christmas. We also touch on the difficulty of being newly divorced at other major life events and celebrations.
As the program progresses, we become a bit more philosophical, as we discuss why and how couples fall out of love in the first place. And we ask the question, "Are those in high conflict divorces actually more in love with their spouses, and soon-to-be exes, than those who divorce with a mutual understanding that they have both simply fallen out of love?" What do you think? Write us your thoughts at DivorceSourceRadio@gmail.com. We'd love to hear from you.…
Finally Out - Letting Go of Living Straight
What would you do if you realized that your own most fundamental assumptions about yourself were wrong? How would you reinvent yourself in your forties if you began to suspect that much of your life had been built on a lie – or at least a critical misperception? These are the questions that Dr. Loren A. Olson, a prominent Midwestern psychiatrist, faced when he finally confronted the fact that despite almost two decades of marriage to a loving and emotionally compatible woman, he was sexually and romantically attracted to men.
Dr. Olson is author of Finally Out - Letting Go of Living Straight and provides insight and wisdom to others experiencing the same situation. Whether it be a husband or wife that finds themselves questioning their own sexuality or a family member or children dealing with accepting their new reality. Dr. Olson help us understand the journey not just from someone who has lived it, but also as a professional psychiatrist.

Divorce at the Movies
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce, Mark Banschick, M.D. takes a look at divorce and family adversity in the movies.
Dr. Banschick believes there are powerful messages in movies that relate to divorce and single parenting that provide wisdom and insight to what might be going on in our lives.
Many children's movies have situations with divorced parents, the death of a parent, or being raised by extended family . Going to one of these well-done movies with your children provides a great opportunity for dialog afterwards and can be a great way of helping your children better understand divorce. Dr. Banschick tells the tale of The Wizard of Oz like you have never heard it before and provides other examples from ET and The Lion King.

Finding a Partner and Falling in Love Again
In this episode of Sex after Divorce with Juliana Neiman, we discuss finding a new partner and falling in love again.
We need to make sure we're not selecting the wrong partner based on our unconscious past decisions. The way to do this is to recognize your psychological make-up by examining past relationships, making adjustments and moving forward to create healthier emotional and sexual relationships.
Juliana discusses the five important things when choosing a new partner including:Unconscious Motivations Being realistic in your expectations - Don't expect your partner to be perfect, we all have flaws Understand our emotional needs Improving communication skills and conflict resolution Being aware of your need for love and worthiness …
The Art of Enhancing Intimate Relationships
In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, we speak with the author of the book, Fishing by Moonlight - The Art of Enhancing Intimate Relationship, Colene Sawyer, Ph.D..
A licensed marriage and family therapist, Dr. Sawyer has worked for nearly three decades in private practice with parents, children, and singles, as a divorce counselor, and with couples and families.
This is a program for anyone going through divorce who's looking for a better understanding of their past relationship choices in an effort to construct healthier relationships in the future.
Dr. Sawyer explains that a new love affair can set off a "feel good" chemical similar to an amphetamine reaction in our brain. This is responsible for the euphoria of passionate infatuation that guides us into believing we have found Mr. or Ms. Right. Unfortunately, we don't always make the smart choices during this state, and like all drug-induced states, the feeling dissipates in time. This program helps us gain a better understanding for how relationships work.
Topics in the program include:Understand why and how we fall in love How you may attract a partner that reenacts negative situations from your childhood Understanding the hidden logic of love How to identify your ideal partner How you can learn from your past and become the optimal partner And much more.

Coping with the Holidays During Divorce
Overcoming Domestic Violence: Moving Out and Moving On
Our guest, Sharon Zarozny of Brilliant Exits (http://www. brilliantexits.com/) shares her personal story of overcoming the trauma she experienced as a victim of Domestic Violence and abuse. Domestic Violence can happen to anyone, and Sharon was hard pressed to believe that this was happening to her. Fact was, as an educated woman who'd traded in a successful career to be a stay at home mom, there was no way she and her daughters were the "victims" of that ugly phrase "domestic violence." Sharon’s family had the trappings of a privileged life thanks to her husband’s thriving surgical practice. He was a brilliant Ivy League grad. It just didn't add up.
If you can identify, get a copy of Susan Weitzman's book Not To People Like Us: Hidden Abuse in Upscale Marriages or check out nottopeoplelikeus.com. Knowing you are not alone is so crucial to getting out. In your world that swirls with "unreals” and craziness, you'll find this book/site a gift of validation. You'll know you are not crazy.
Also visit The Weitzman Center and download the free Care Kit provided. It too will help you understand and safely plan for when you are ready to get out. And plan you must. When you leave a high earning, narcissistic professional you can be in for quite a rough ride through the legal system. Often the upscale abuser has the means, power and leverage to hire a legal dream team and use the courts to further the abuse.…

Holiday Survival Guide for Moms
In this holiday edition of Divorce Source Radio, divorce coach Jeanie Rule, of www.SoloMama.com, presents The Holiday Survival Guide for Divorcing or Divorced Moms.
The holidays can be a stressful time for anyone, but for a mother going through a divorce, this season can be even more challenging. Beyond financial issues, many moms face the isolation of being left out of events they used to attend, as well as facing their ex at social or school events.

The first holiday season apart from your family is always the toughest, but we learn that, in time, things will get better, and, if handled correctly, the way we go through the trials of this season can be something our kids will come to admire.…
How Children Get Wounded During Divorce
In this powerful episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banshick, M.D., we discuss how children can become wounded during a divorce. Our guest is Ditta M. Oliker, Ph.D., author of Hide & Seek: Reclaiming Childhood’s Lost Potential.

She continued to develop these themes after beginning her practice and incorporated them into her concept of survival systems.

When Divorce Seems Unfair
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Dr. Mark Banschick, M.D., our topic is Fairness.
Many of us going through a divorce have felt we have been wronged and that much of what we are going through is unfair. We had hopes and dreams that our marriage would last forever and then one day, perhaps out of the blue, our partner tells us they want out of the marriage, you're served divorce papers or you discover your spouse has been having an affair. Even the court system fails us in their attempt of fairness.
This can leave us feeling so betrayed and it all feels so unfair. As parents, we have a duty to teach our children about fairness. The only fair outcome of your divorce would be to free yourself from what you believe was not fair and move on to a happier life, and in the process, provide an example to your children that there's a better life out there with acceptance.

To Move or Not to Move - That is the Question
In this episode of "Ask Henry," attorney Henry Gornbein, answers the questions: Should I move out of our home or stay? and When is The Right Time to Introduce a New Flame to Your Children.
It used to be that keeping a marital home was the best thing to do for the sake of your children and finances, and this property was routinely a bargaining tool when dividing assets. Today, with the downfall of the economy, many homeowners are "underwater," meaning the owners owe more than the house is worth. Henry helps us make sense of when staying is the proper thing to do, and when it's best to cut our losses and move on.
The second part of this program is dedicated to when to tell your children that you have a new love interest. This decision is sometime rushed and not in the best interest of the children. This is a subject that should be handled with care, and Henry provides his advice on what he feels is in the best interest of the entire family.

Between the Sheets - Sex and the Solo Moma
At some point after divorce, mom will start to feel sexual again. That’s a good sign. It means she’s healing and on her way to wholeness. Unfortunately, because there’s so much sexual shaming and mixed messages in our society about sex and divorced moms, divorced moms will often distort their sexuality (meaning inappropriate and risky sex), or limit themselves to unloving relationships or shut down their sexual sides all together. This doesn’t serve anybody. We are meant to be whole, and sex is a part of that wholeness. Divorced, not dead.
There’s a better way. In this program, Divorce Coach, Jeanie Rule explains that when a mother can understand, embrace and integrate her unique sexual self into her divorced-mom life, then she’s able to tap into the special sparks that good sexuality brings to all of us – better health, emotional well-being, creativity, connection to others, confidence, vitality.…

Masturbation - Sex after Divorce Part 5
In Episode #5 of Sex after Divorce with sex therapist, Juliana Neiman, we discuss masturbation.
Masturbation is looked at as taboo by some and others were raised to believe that it's wrong to pleasure yourself.
In addition to feeling good, masturbation is a good way of relieving the sexual tension that can build up over time, especially for people without partners or whose partners are not willing or available for sex. Masturbation also is a safe sexual alternative for people who wish to avoid pregnancy and the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases.
Medically, It relieves stress and keeps everything about your body—your heart rate, blood pressure, reproductive system, brain chemistry—in very good shape .A 2003 Australian study found that men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer. Regularly flushing your system, so to speak, keeps your semen healthy and prevents the build up of cancer-causing chemicals.
So why all the hush hush? Juliana breaks down the myths associated with masturbation and helps us understand how to live a more fulfilling life in future relationships.…

Answers to Commonly Asked Questions when Going Through Divorce
The dissolution of a marriage is a major life transition that entails having to make some of the toughest decisions of your life at a time when you are least able to.
Not knowing what to do -- and not being able to learn or take in information about these areas of your life that could potentially impact you and your kids for years to come -- means that you have to depend on others for help.
Finding the right professionals early on may be easier said than done, but all you need is one professional you like and trust to get started. You can then ask her for assistance in getting the other team members together. If you're lucky, a divorce network will already exist in your area.
In this episode of Beyond Divorce, Susan Pease Gadoua provides answers to commonly asked questions from people going through divorce. These answers are provided by the Divorce Dream Team, a group who has come together to provide "one-stop-shopping" resources for women going through divorce.…
Being the Strong Man a Woman Wants
In this program, The Smart Divorce radio show with Deborah Moskovitch features Elliott Katz, author of seven nonfiction books. He teaches the principles he shares in his book: Being a Strong Man a Woman Wants
After the end of a relationship, Elliott sought to learn about being a man in a relationship. He found books on marriage and relationships said little to him. He found powerful timeless insights in the lessons that fathers and other older male role models taught younger men. People started seeking his advice and would say, “Why didn’t someone tell me this before?”
Moving beyond the trendy ideas about a man’s role – that just don’t seem to work – Elliott shares insights on being a man that have withstood the test of time. Interestingly, these insights are the traits that he heard many women complain were lacking in men today – showing leadership, making decisions and taking responsibility.
Topics in this program include:Why are women so frustrated with today's men? How does growing up without strong male role models affect men today? The lack of "quality" men is a common complaint from women today. What happened to today’s men? Does today's strong woman today want a strong man? What are the traits of a strong man? …

Washington's Dysfunctional Marriage
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Dr. Mark Banschick M.D. we discuss the similarities of a dysfunctional marriage and the dysfunction of our federal government.
Like opposing spouses in a bitter divorce, both parties claim the exclusive ability of knowing the “right thing to do.” After all, they “care” more about those in their charge. Each one also wants to get the better of the other, even if it means maligning or making ugly accusations – and, in the end, getting nowhere.
It is part of being human. But in a healthy relationship, whether a good marriage, a reasonable divorce or a functioning Congress, the conflict usually transforms into a collaborative effort rather than a combative one.
Though power struggles are inevitable, they don’t have to be destructive. Granted, it may be easier to be a single parent or to govern as a single party — but it is almost always better to have two points of view.
Like the children caught between two parents in this unpleasant divorce, the American public is left to wonder and to fear the results of this dysfunctional marriage. They see the posturing and feel anxious, but can do little.…
How Early Sexual Influences Affect Relationships - Sex after Divorce Part 2
In the second episode of Sex after Divorce - Reconnecting with our Sexual Selves, sex therapist, Juliana Neiman, explains how our "sexual script" may have played a role in past unhealthy sexual relationships.
In this program, you'll learn how what you were told, taught or experienced early on in your life defined your "sexual script," or, said another way, your feelings toward sex.
Were you raised to think of sex as something you don't talk about, or something that is natural and healthy? Did your parents discuss sex with you, or were they the type to not mention it at all? Did religion play a role in making you feel sex was wrong? Was your first sexual experience a good or bad one?
All these situations early in life define our sexual scripts, and sometimes, these beliefs and feelings are quite negative and prevent us from living a healthy sexual life.
In this ten-part series, Juliana will talk about sex and help us understand our sexuality in the context of dealing with the emotional turmoil and aftermath of divorce. Her insights will help us to understand how we can change and improve our sexual lives for healthier relationships.…
The Evolution of the Divorce Rate
Have you ever stopped to ponder why the divorce rate has risen so dramatically over the past 50 years? Divorce was a rare event previous to the first world war with a rate of less than one per 1,000 of the yearly number of marriages.
There has been significant progress in divorce reform making it easier and fairer to obtain. Researchers would most likely agree that not only has divorce become more socially acceptable, but divorce laws have also changed to provide a more equitable resolution for many since the late 1960s. The amendment to the Divorce Act to permit the reason for divorce as no-fault (in other words, no-blame divorce) has radically altered the factors influencing the decision to divorce.
In this Program, Divorce Consultant, Deborah Moskovitch discusses the evolution of the divorce rate and it's impact on the family.…

How long it takes to "recover" from a divorce depends on a number of factors, including how long you were together, how good the relationship was and how committed you were to your spouse, whether the divorce was a surprise to you or not, whether you have children together, whether you or your spouse are involved in a new relationship, your personality, your age, your socio-economic status and on and on.
In addition, grief has a life of its own and you are done when your grief process is done, and not a minute before. There is no magic formula and no way to get through your grief on the fast track. But you can do things to slow your process down. In addition, grief has a life of its own and you are done* when your grief process is done, and not a minute before.

The Challenges and Rewards of Co-Parenting Post Divorce
This episode of Beyond Divorce with Susan Pease Gadoua, Discusses the challenge and rewards of co-parenting post divorce.
How co-parenting goes post divorce depends to a large degree on how it was during the marriage: if it was difficult, it may be more difficult post divorce, and if it was good, it may be better. Often, the parenting dynamics are exaggerated so, even though the amount of contact with your ex is less, the intensity of the contact may be greater.
Challenges to overcome include being fearful that the other parent has less regard for the health and safety or your child, disapproving or your ex's parenting style, feeling a sense of competition with your ex and using your children as pawns.
In divorce, there are often feelings of anger, sadness and hurt - co-parenting is no exception. It's important to get adequate emotional support as well as co-parenting education. Learning effective communication styles can be crucial in having a better working experience.…

Telling the Children about Divorce - The Intelligent Divorce
In the first episode of The Intelligent Divorce, Dr. Mark Banschick, M.D. discusses how to tell your children about divorce.
Truth is a great value, but it is not the only value by which we live. When it comes to kids, their health and well-being trumps everything else. We bring them into the world fresh and innocent. Your children were probably born into an intact family. This is what they know – a solid, caring team who loves them.
Much will change with a divorce. A child is no longer able to be with both of their parents at the same time, under the same roof. Their sense of security can be lessened and they must adapt to a new way of life.
Do you really want to tell them the truth? Should they know that their father had an affair and left their mother (and them)? Do you want them to know about their mother’s alcoholism? I’m not so sure.
There is a lot in life that’s private. Kids need to have their innocence. This means that they need not know everything – explicit details are better left unsaid. In my mind, their mental health trumps truth.
This opinion is not always embraced by parents, particularly a parent who feels wronged or defamed. That parent wants the child to carry the same opinion about the other parent that they carry. Here’s something to remember: your children are not you. They are entitled to their own opinions.
In this program learn the essential Do's and Don'ts when it comes to breaking the news to your children.…
