Looking for a good investment in your son?

You all know how passionate I am about creating a secure sense of safety for your kids after a divorce. It helps them establish their family identity. Every child needs to know the love of their parents. It's that foundational knowledge that can bring families closer together or break them apart if it isn't there.

My friend and fellow author Ben Wolf wrote "I'd Punch a Lion in His Eye for You" as a tangible way to show his son Liam how much he loved him. He has since started a Kickstarter Campaign to help fund its production.

I'm a big fan of Ben's work, and I believe in this message. I know you do too. Would you consider joining me in supporting his campaign to produce this much-needed book? If you can't give at least share this link with others.

Check out this fun and quirky children's book now.

When Kids Want to Live with the Other Parent

When a 5 or 15 year old says to a judge at a family court hearing, “I want to live with my dad [or mom]” most judges will take the child’s statement literally and side with him/her.  

With that said, parents or judges that think it’s the best interest to do what is said by the child during or after a divorce may be mistaken. It could come back to haunt all of them (judges, parents, and the kids when they grow older).

Anyone involved during a legal proceeding when it comes down to “the best interest of the child” will tell you, it’s not a pretty situation for all involved. 

What do you think? Ever been through this yourself?
