Ex-Etiquette for Parents: Good Behavior After a Divorce or Separation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written for both biological parents and stepparents, this helpful guide provides the tools necessary to raising well-adjusted children after a stressful divorce. Innovative in its technique and cowritten by a certified divorce and stepfamily expert and her own stepchildren's mother, this etiquette book provides an authentic guide for ex-spouses to interact on a civil and healthy level. Sample conversation for everyday scenarios help exes create a positive environment and ensure the mental and physical well-being of the children. Whether it's coordinating discipline between households, introducing a new partner, dealing with late child support payments, or providing a regular schedule for children, this guide empowers parents to change what they can—their attitudes and communication skills. In doing so, divorced parents can increase their self-esteem and personal growth and emerge confident that they can handle awkward situations and powerful emotions while keeping the children's best interests a priority.

Review:

"Blackstone-Ford is a divorce and stepfamily mediator who married Jupe's first husband. Together, they?ve written a thoughtful, well-informed guide to practicing good behavior after a divorce or separation. Their combined experiences as wife and ex-wife, along with Blackstone-Ford?s professional expertise, allow them to expound on a number of situations. Indeed, it seems they cover all the bases: introducing a new romantic interest to your ex, interacting with a 'counterpartner' (i.e., the ex or new partner) when there?s been an affair, handling attraction among stepsiblings, dealing with an absentee parent who resurfaces and more. Relations between spouses and exes can often be fraught with complications, and confused or frustrated readers will find much of value here. The authors keep their emphasis on the positive (e.g., calling a stepfamily a 'bonusfamily'), but are never unrealistic about the challenges divorced parents face. They even include a chapter on 'managing the formalities,' offering suggestions for correspondence, weddings, showers and holidays."
