being a parent post-divorce


Cooperating with your ex for the sake of your children can seem overwhelming in the early stages of the divorce.

The Divorced Kids' Manifesto - Kate Scharff, LCSW-C LICSW

The Divorced Kids' Manifesto - Kate Scharff, LCSW-C LICSW | Relationships | Scoop.it
  • Don’t criticize each other in front of us. Rolling your eyes counts. After a few years we might stop telling you how much we hate it. We never stop hating it. And by the way– we overhear about ninety-five percent of your phone conversations.
  •  If we tell you something bad that happened at the other parent’s house, just listen. Maybe try to be supportive or help us figure out how to cope. We hate it when you have a conniption and run to the phone. Plus, we can tell when you’re secretly psyched that it’s not all paradise “over there.” That sucks, too.
Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

This is excellent manifesto for parents to know what divorce is like for kids.

About Women

  • Married mothers have lower rates of depression than single or cohabiting mothers.

Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

Looking for a reason to stay married? Here it is. These pro-marriage research findings are all in one document. I found it interesting that over five studies "analyzing different populations find that married men

(especially married fathers) have lower testosterone levels than do
similar men who never-married or divorced." Of note, co-habitating men had the same results. Apparently being near a woman lowers testosterone.
