Set transition terms in the parenting plan for your kids

Children who are journeying through their parents' divorce might have some negative thoughts about the time when they have to go from one home to the other. This is understandable because they've lived in one home with both adults for a long time. As a parent, it is up to you to make this process as painless as possible. Fortunately, there are some methods that might help you to do this.

Getting divorced? Keep it off of social media

Social media is an outlet. You talk about your joys and your triumphs. You share your struggles and frustrations. You connect with friends and family members. You get advice and you vent. It's a place where you quickly put your thoughts, typically not caring who reads them. You're not worried about what others think of you.

Working through the ins and outs of your divorce

The end of your marriage brings great change. For people who have been married for a long time, splitting up might seem like an impossible feat. Fortunately, it is possible for you to move on and thrive. Many things go into this, but it is ultimately up to you to do what you need to do to live your best life.

Coping with passive-aggressive behavior from your ex

Passive-aggressive behavior can make all situations more difficult. When this occurs in a co-parenting relationship, it can make even easy-to-resolve conflicts incredibly challenging. Both parents have to be willing to take an honest look at their own behaviors so that they can determine whether they are being passive-aggressive. Any hints of this behavior should be addressed immediately so that the focus can move back to the children.

Prepare for the emotional journey of adopting a child

When you are ready to add a new member to your family, you might decide that you are going to adopt a child. This is a long and complex process, but it is very rewarding. There are several things that you need to think about when you are getting ready to embark upon the process. We are here to help you with the legal aspects. You also need to plan for the emotional aspect of the journey. Many people who are adopting are surprised at the emotional rollercoaster.

You can control your reaction to divorce matters

A divorce is a tumultuous time in an adult's life. When you are the one going through it, you might crave peace. You can't control your ex's actions, but you can control your own actions and thoughts. You may be able to reduce the tension in the situation and help to make the split as amicable as possible.
