Disagreements are normal in any relationship so you have to expect that you and your ex are not going to agree on everything. If you're not comfortable handling disagreements, knowing this might make you groan, tense up and become anxious.
You have choices.
You could decide you're just going to say no to everything your ex asks. That will however lead to on-going unresolved conflict which is when divorce harms children the most.
At the other end of the scale, you could choose to go along with whatever your ex wants. This is more a theoretical option rather than anything that is viable..
Or, you take it step-by-step, issue-by-issue and learn how to handle the difficult conversations better.
Realistically, this third option is the only meaningful choice. And there are some pretty simple techniques you can follow that will help you communicate more meaningfully and effectively.
Joining Mandy to discuss these techniques are two communication experts, Leslie Breisch and Christina Jensen. Breisch is the co-founder and Software Developer of Civil Communicator and Jensen is Director of Sales and Marketing.
