Rusty Nails (reprinted from MyCoparenter blog)

Hello Friends,

I hope you had a wonderful, enjoyable Mother’s Day weekend! 

I read this guest blog post from my friend Colleen Rice, who is a co-parenting coach, and wanted to share it with you. I’ve included a portion of her post, however feel free to click on this link to finish reading the entire post. Let me know what you think about it.

Imagine you take your children camping to a rustic cabin in the woods and you see a stack of lumber piled off to the side of the yard. One child thinks it will be fun to use it as an obstacle but you see old rusty nails sticking out all over. You tell them to stop because you care for them, you don’t want them to get hurt and if we are being honest it would ruin everyone else’s night to have to take them to the hospital (which is over an hour away).

The same thing happens when I observe you doing something that will hurt you or your children. I will stop it to ultimately make your life easier just like the parent in the above situation.

That’s where the similarity ends:  I will stop my child but for you I can only suggest it (because you are an adult and make your own decisions.)

However, if you are having struggles with your ex-spouse and don’t know what you can do to change things I may be able to help. Click this link to continue reading Colleen’s blog.

Enjoy and have a great week!
