Parenting Post Divorce

posted on January 21, 2013 12:30pm by Meryl

When my son was born, the pediatrician told my husband and me that the most important thing we could do for him would be to stay married. Of course, that’s what we all aspire to as couples with children, but it doesn’t always work out. The reality is that 50% of marriages end in divorce, and 40 % of marriages with children.   

I’m lucky in that I met my hubby in college and we’ve been together ever since. We have had our share of bumps in the road, but by and large it turns out we are very compatible and share similar views on life and parenting. Not everyone is so fortunate. Because many parents face the real challenge of parenting after divorce, I dedicated a radio show to this important topic. My guest, Melinda Roberts is a child of divorce and ended up divorcing from the father of her children. She is now raising kids in a newly re-married blended household and has written a wonderful book about parenting post-divorce called 42 Rules for Divorcing With Children.
 
Are you parenting after a split? Do you have any challenges or tips that you would like to share? I would love to hear your thoughts.
