Get a (Light) Grip in Your Child Custody Case

When I was growing up, there was a phrase we’d use when someone needed to calm down, “get a grip.” It was even a damn good Aerosmith album (if you’re my age you’re picturing the pierced cow udder in your head right now). Grip, though, even just the word, sounds aggressive, implies tension, such consonance of hard consonants (#swidt). And we see that in #childcustody and #coparenting, either side trying to hold on too tightly, to control everything. Anyone doing that is going to carry that tension in each part of their body and in each part of their lives including, unfortunately, their relationship with their children. Raising a child is about flexibility and guidance, especially in #coparenting. Giving up complete control is just part of it. The folks that don’t realize that are the ones that risk losing everything.


It’s easier to lighten up your grip on everything when you have people around you that you trust and can give you perspective, who can speak truth into your life in a way that you can hear it without getting defensive. When you feel like you’re doing this alone, you’re gonna feel like you have to hang on for dear life.


If you would like to learn more about how you, as a Committed Parent or Caring Relative, can stand up for yourself and be more effective in your Child Custody case, please to schedule your initial consultation at one of our offices.
