Protected: Anoka Attorney Promotes ‘Touchy Feely’ Language To Save CoParenting Relationships

Everybody makes mistakes.  Everyone has hurt someone they love (or used to love), whether intentionally or unintentionally.  The dividing line comes with what happens next.   I love the below blog post: //www.heartfeltleadership.com/blog/2014/2/15/dr-gs-relationship-tool-box.html   The idea is to Focus on a Future where nobody has screwed up yet.  The person who can honestly ask and take listen un-defensively to their co-parent’s answers to the following questions has a terrific chance of being a terrific co-parent: At my worst, how bad am I capable of making you feel? If I committed to fixing that, what would be the effect? DO NOT expect the same questions in return.  DO NOT expect the answer to come right away.  But if a parent can put their own feelings if hurt, anger, and loss behind what their children need, the child will also learn to do this.  The child has a great chance of loving and respecting both parents but (knowing that we are all competitive) will eventually see and respect the parent who is working harder.   I often tell my clients that they have successfully raised a child in a blended and/or non-traditional family if the child’s reaction to their other parent’s dysfunction is an affectionate eye-roll.  Think about it....
