so our advice is always
00:06
just try to maintain the positive
00:08
relationship that you have with your
00:09
children
00:10
your children are the most important
00:12
thing what went on with
00:14
whether this is through a divorce
00:16
process what went on between
00:18
you and your spouse or your ex-spouse or
00:20
maybe you weren’t married and it’s an
00:22
ex-boyfriend however the relationship
00:24
transpired those things become kind of
00:27
irrelevant and the focus needs to be on
00:29
your child or children
00:31
during this process and you need to
00:32
focus on maintaining your relationship
00:35
with the child or the children we stress
00:38
not to bad mouth the other parent to the
00:41
children because then that creates a
00:43
very
00:44
intense he said she said situation and
00:47
you’re putting your child in the middle
00:48
of that
00:49
and so we always try to stress that
00:51
please avoid getting the children
00:52
involved in issues between mom and dad
00:55
because that doesn’t work out for
00:57
anybody and
00:58
those children end up having to get put
01:00
in the middle of that situation
01:02
and it’s just it’s hard on them you know
01:04
they’re adjusting to this new norm as
01:05
well with mom and dad no longer living
01:07
together and so
01:08
we just always stress that if you’re
01:10
able to
01:12
maintain the great relationship you have
01:13
with your children do so
01:15
maybe your relationship with your
01:16
children needs a little help and
01:18
we would say to strive towards fixing
01:20
those issues that you may have
01:22
with your children or your child and do
01:24
whatever you can to move forward in a
01:26
positive fashion
01:27
so that you can maintain that
01:29
relationship moving forward
01:31
and we just always stress again for
01:33
those parties to
01:34
you know keep mom and dad issues mom and
01:37
dad issues and try to avoid bringing the
01:39
children into those
01:41
