Child Custody and Co-Parenting in the Service Industry…

Are you a Co-Parent in the service industry? Sometimes work hours in the evening or even in the wee hours at a bar, Waffle House or entertainment venue can create space during the day to enjoy time with your children or even babysit the kid(s) while they stay with the Other Side, but it can […]

In Child Custody, “So What” Gets a Bad Rap…

We heard @tferriss on a podcast drop a great tip that could really come in hand in #ChildCustody and #CoParenting. Every time you’re triggered by the Other Side, ask yourself, “So What?”, three times and consider how something actually affects you or your kids.

Book a Win (no matter how small) in Child Custody…

Book a win, no matter how small. Make your bed. Clean off the dining room table. Actually spend 20 seconds washing your hands like the Mayo clinic says.

More practically, though, and especially during Lent, it gives […]

Your Child Custody Priority Rankings…?

If you have too many priorities you don’t have any. We’ve all heard that, no? Have we ever sat down and thought about or, better yet, written down and ranked our priorities? Heck, sometimes as Parents, especially in the throes of #childcustody and #coparenting, it doesn’t feel like we’ve ever sat down, much done deeper […]

In Child Custody…Do Lawyer Stuff

This is the other “stuff” quote I really like. Child Custody gets a lot simpler, frankly, when you treat it like any other case.

Your Child Custody Experience – Your Circle of Influence – w Exercise

Who influences your life? How so? To what extent? Is this someone you’re stuck with, for better or worse, e.g., your child, hopefully? Is this someone you can minimize, whether presence-wise or influence-wise, in your life, like a manipulative Co-Parent, perhaps? When the talking heads on ESPN joke about an athlete living in an opponent’s […]
