Welcome to the
Child-Centered Divorce Network!
As The Voice of Child-Centered Divorce, my mission is to enlighten parents, educators and society as a whole about the emotional and psychological effects of divorce on children.
I believe that it is not divorce itself that negatively affects our children. It is the parent’s approach to divorce that determines whether their children will be angry, insecure, frightened or in other ways emotionally scarred from the divorce experience. I encourage all divorcing parents to remember their roles and responsibilities towards their children. In that way we can prevent unnecessary pain, suffering, confusion, guilt or shame for them at this difficult time in their lives.
I am passionate about enlisting the legal, therapeutic and educational communities around the world to bring a heightened awareness about ways to create the most positive and harmonious outcomes for families transitioning through divorce.
My goal is to spread the word that when parents divorce, their children need them more than ever. I want to help you avoid the mistakes that create emotional pain for your children. I’m here to help you stay out of the courts whenever possible. I encourage you to be a compassionate, loving parent who understands your children’s need for both their parents in their lives.
On these pages you will find my free ebook on Post-Divorce Parenting (sign up now), plus dozens of free articles, my regular blog posts, coaching services as well as a diverse roster of other valuable resources to help you through any facet of parenting before, during and after divorce. You are not alone!
The Child-Centered Divorce Network is here to provide the support you need in moving on in the best ways for you, your children as well as their other parent. Remember, parental decisions about divorce can affect your children – for years – and often for a lifetime. Don’t let them down.

What you write here is very true. My experience has been that it takes both parents to make the decision not to pursue high conflict. If one parent creates conflict and is unwilling to resolve peacefully it then becomes up to the attorneys and judge to make the right choices that do not encourage involving children. A parent in a situation where conflict is not avoidable having people like Rosalind to give you guidance is even more valuable for you and your children.
Thanks for your support, Sherry. That’s what the Child-Centered Divorce Network is all about!
