What’s the narrative fallacy? Abhishek Chakraborty, writer of ‘Sunday Wisdom’ on the website, Medium, puts it this way, “Life is full of random facts.

We Don’t Joke about Child Custody…Not Even on April Fools’ Day

Child Custody Terminology – Abandonment

Folks toss around legal terms much too lightly, especially in #ChildCustody. For example, when someone says they “signed over their rights” to their child, that phrase doesn’t mean anything, or rather could mean dozens of different things, without a great deal more context. ‘Alienation’ is another example and another discussion for another day. Here, we […]

Child Custody Devotional – Identify and Develop Individual Skills in Co-Parenting…

I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. Daniel 9:22 ~ In #ChildCustody and #CoParenting, I think we give short shrift to ‘skill’ as parents.
