Parenting Coordinator and Special Master

If there is one thing all of the conflict resolution experts listed at the right agree upon, it is this:

The less conflict there is between parents, the better off their children will be.

Conflict between parents is very difficult for children to bear. I have heard firsthand from adult children of divorced parents how emotionally toxic the conflict between their parents felt to them. The stories are tragic because the impact on the children’s lives is so great . . . and so lasting.

We all want our kids to be optimistic, resilient and happy. Decreasing the conflict they witness and experience between you and your spouse or ex-spouse is a first step.  I meet people where they are. Then I help them move.
