Author Sarah Armstrong’s Book Guides Moms to a Good Divorce
The Mom’s Guide to a Good Divorce is a practical guide for any woman going through a divorce, filled with everything she needs to think through in order to always do what is best for her children. The guide is written by Sarah Armstrong in a conversational tone from one mom to another. Served up in bite-sized pieces, the goal is to help women with children navigate the entire divorce process and post-divorce phase in a manner that will ultimately put it in the category of a “good divorce.” According to Armstrong, after reflecting on the benefits noted in her book, there may be more willingness among couples to consider a collaborative-type divorce arrangement, mediation or an amicable traditional divorce rather than the usual contentiousness that is all too familiar. Coping with the stress compassionately One strategy Armstrong employed was to create a strong network of close girlfriends and “energy

Using Forgiveness To Boost Healing, Health & Harmony in Life
By Rosalind Sedacca, CDC With a new year looming before us, there’s no better time to reflect on ways we can let go of hurt, guilt, anxiety, anger and other emotions that destroy our inner peace and harmony. One of the most effective ways to heal from within is through the power of FORGIVENESS! Forgiveness is a decision to let go of resentment, pain, hurt as well as thoughts of revenge.  Forgiving doesn't mean you are forgetting or denying the pain and hurt. It means you are releasing the grip it has over your life. It means you choose to focus  on more positive facets of life for your own well-being.  Forgiving does not mean you deny the other person's responsibility in hurting you, nor does it minimize that pain.   We don't forgive for the other person. We forgive because of the value it brings to us! Through forgiveness you can better

Divorce or Stay – a Tough Challenge For Parents Either Way!
By Rosalind Sedacca, CDC Get divorced? Or stay in an unhappy marriage? This is a complex and controversial subject. There are no right or wrong answers, nor are there any simplistic black and white solutions. I am sharing my own perspective, based on my own life experiences. I welcome you to contribute your own thoughts. That's as long as you are respectful of the rights of others to see the world in a different light. I am a Divorce & Co-Parenting Coach. I'm also the Founder of the internationally-acclaimed Child-Centered Divorce Network.

Divorce Is Tough – And Even Tougher On T

Divorce Is Tough – And Even Tougher On Teens!
Learn how to Support Teens Through Divorce & Co-Parenting Challenges By Rosalind Sedacca, CDC We all know divorce is tough on families. Everyone is affected, especially the children. In most cases, the older the children, the more complex the reaction and more difficult the adaptation. There are many reasons why. Older children have a longer history in the former family unit, regardless of how healthy or toxic it has been. Perhaps they remember better times when both parents interacted with them and each other with more joy and harmony. Even if there were no good times to look back upon, teenagers were accustomed to the existing family dynamic, knew their place in the structure, and felt a sense of comfort in “what is.” Resisting change is a natural part of being human. For teenagers that resistance is compounded by a tendency to test boundaries and rock the status quo. Divorce or

CO-PARENT HUB Takes the Conflict Out of ...

By Rosalind Sedacca, CDC We all know co-parenting can be challenging. And when communication breaks down, it can lead to conflict which negatively impacts the entire family. That’s why, as founder of the Child-Centered Divorce Network, I was so impressed when I learned about the new Co-Parent Hub. It’s a solution designed to eliminate many of the interactions that cause strain in co-parenting relationships.  The creator of Co-Parent Hub, Alex Pelli, sums it up by saying, “We stop the fighting before it even starts.” How? By making communication MUCH easier! When you sign up, you get a Co-Phone and a Co-Email that you put on file with the school, pediatrician, dentist, sport coaches -- even parents of your kids’ friends. When they need to get in touch, they use that info and Co-Parent Hub will route the call/text/email to BOTH co-parents at the same time! This means no missed messages and no
