Call in to speak with the host
On this month's show episode, we discuss the hard cases, the tough nuts to crack, the brick walls...you get the idea. When you've tried to communicate and cooperate with your ex to no avail, or when substance abuse, mental illness, or domestic violence is a factor in your co-parenting situation, you may feel powerless to protect your children from the emotional distress and other consequences relaed to your ex's behavior. Co-parenting may seem impossible.
But the good news is you can still make a positive difference in your children's lives. Our guests are three co-parents, Friends of Co-Parenting 101 Carolyn Edgar, Pauline Gaines, and Eric @real_ATLDAD) who are in the co-parenting trenches, parenting under some difficult circumstances. They'll share their stories with you, and we'll share some strategies for tackling your toughest co-parenting challenges. Send your questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweet us @coparentingshow.
Also...we'll be sharing tips from Chapter 12 of Deesha and Mike's book, Co-Parenting 101: Helping Your Kids Thrive in Two Households After Divorce, "15 Things You Can Do for Your Child in Spite of Your Uncooperative Ex," and we'll give away a copy of the book during the show. Just send us a question, and you'll automatically be entered to win. (You can also ask a question and not be entered in the drawing; just let us know.)
We hope you'll tune in!
