Here is anopportunity to share the confessions about your divorce or co-parenting experiences. This can be something that you have told to family and friends or a private thought that has remained a secret…….until now. Focus on extreme moments of individual experiences.  

This is a place to confess what your co-parent did or said that led to your feelings of betrayal, fear or humiliation. Write about something that you enacted, a statement or a thought you expressed that caused grief for your co-parent, your child or yourself.

  • Parents who are divorced or in the process of divorce.
  • Parents and co-parents (never married) who have children.
  • Parents who have or do not have a parenting plan in place.
  • Anyone interested in a front row seat to see the despair that divorce or co-parenting issues can have on a parent and how the actions impact the child.

What Are They Saying?

 

What are the parents saying? Each parent is pointing a finger indicating they are trying to make a point. What words is this child hearing causing the large, flowing, blue  tears.    Even the dog, with wide eyes, seems startled by the parental conversation. Does either parent see how this is impacting their daughter.  Hopefully, one parent will take a moment and comfort their child.

Clip Their Wings

 

The abnormal relationship promoted by the alienating parent is a form of control and manipulation. Strings of fear and guilt tend to keep the child from venturing out and developing as a person. The child is led to believe they are unimportant and, worse yet, unlovable.  Patterns of communication established in early childhood impact every aspect of the child’s life.  Ego, relationships, and self-esteem are based on the parent-child relationship. Sadly, one can easily become entrapped and pass the family ‘tradition’ down to their own children. Creating an intergenerational pattern of behaviors.

Last Letter

 

A father leaves one last message for the son he fought for in family court.  This parent just wanted to have a relationship with his child.   This is a tragic outcome of which there is no return. Will this little boy ever know the struggles this father endured seeking custody.  This child will never know the love of his father.  Suicide among parents of custody is a concern.

If you are thinking about committing suicide because of your family court battle. Please seek help.  You are not alone.

Solicitor Agrees

 

Is family court fair? Do both parents have equal rights?  What ruling should be made? Sometimes, judges and attorneys know what the outcome should be in custody rulings  One parent shares their devastating experience in family court. 

“I had the exact same situation today in court (in discussing a similar case) she was caught right out lying on several occasions and I lost.  I told how she mistreated me and the kids.  Without hesitation the judge gave it (custody) to her.  The solicitor said I should have won.  I’m appealing”.

Parents Fighting Badly

 

First fight? Undoubtedly, this is not the first time this young lady has over heard her parents arguing. Pointing fingers, red faces, mean expressions…..a bad fight between parents. The adolescent is in the middle. Does she look  exasperated?  Is there meaning to her appearing below the parents?

Divorce is between the parents and about the child!

50-50 Custody!

 

A great message for fathers seeking custody (mothers too). Both parents are fighting for parental rights.  Fighting for the rights of the child.  A child needs and wants to have a relationship with both parents.  This pic represents an unfortunate reality for many fathers (and  mothers).  Shared from The West Virginia Father’s Rights Movement FB page: https://www.facebook.com/TFRMWV/
