"The relationship is more important then the problem."
This episode is sponsored by the book “Ten Tips On How To Survive Your Parent’s Divorce.” Do you know of a child who is to young for them to express themselves? This coloring book can possibly help them. This book was actually written by two kid authors: Becca and Connor. Their own expense of divorce can help other kids because again this book was written by kids.
You can purchase the book at BlendingTheFamily.com or even on Amazon.
Author of Parenting as a Second Language (pub. Goalkeeper Media) https://www.amazon.com/Parenting-Second-Language-Navigating-Tribulations/dp/1523738243 and award winning parent educator Elisabeth Stitt founded Joyful Parenting Coaching in 2014 to give parents the skills they need to be confident and joyous.
Over the course of her 25-year teaching career in the Redwood City School District, Elisabeth saw how parents were becoming increasingly isolated and were coming to parenting with little or no actual hands on experience with kids. Parents used to turn to family and neighbors for models in how to parent: Today they have to seek out information and support from professionals.
Through her weekly newsletter, in-person workshops, one-on-one coaching and online webinars and tele summits, Elisabeth helps parents establish harmonious households so they can have the warm, loving, effective relationships with their kids that they deserve.
