Raising a Child with an Uncooperative Ex? Parenting is hard enough in a family where two parents love and respect each other. After divorce, when respect has diminished and love has often turned to intense dislike, co-parenting can be nearly impossible, driving one or both parents to the brink of insanity. Julie and Judy offer many proven communication techniques that help you deal with your difficult ex-husband or ex-wife. By outlining common custody problems and teaching tools to examine your own role in these sticky situations, this book conveys strategies for effective mediation that are easy to apply, sensible, timely and innovative.
