What to Tell your Spouse Before You Tell the Kids — about the Divorce!
Ever go on a vacation without making plans in advance? The consequences are usually disastrous. If you fail to plan ahead regarding newspaper and mail delivery, feeding your pets or watering the plants, knowing where your destination is and reserving your accommodations, your vacation is likely to be filled with disappointment, frustration and even heartache.

After Divorce: 4 Ways to Ease Between-Home Transitions for Your Kids
During divorce proceedings parenting plans or contact schedules are usually established to create a semblance of routine in this new chapter of family life.

Also allow your children time to adjust to the “new” home after each transition. In time these

Meet Rosalind Sedacca, CDC The Voice of Child-Centered Divorce https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkjBURhXL5A Rosalind Sedacca, CDC Hi, I'm Rosalind, a Divorce & Co-Parenting Coach, mother and mentor. I founded the Child-Centered Divorce Network for parents ten years after my own divorce which took place when my son was eleven years old. You can read about my personal journey below. Having raised a child through divorce and the years that followed I understand much of what you are going through. Like you, I’ve felt the pain, fear, anxiety, anger, hurt and other emotions that deeply impact so many divorces with children. Most important of all, I’ve helped parents understand what your children may be experiencing as a consequence of your divorce. They are the innocent victims – and need to be protected, loved and nurtured every step of the way. I am passionate about helping families find the best path
