Establishing Your Power As A Divorcing Parent
|Most of us want to feel that we can effectively make an impact on our children and be in charge in our own homes. The divorce process magnifies any issues parents have in this area due to all of the insecurities, fears, and sadness that is exposed during this time. The problem is further exaggerated because power is a very tricky commodity, and most of us don’t understand what real power is. So we try to push, demand, control, manipulate, yell, and underplay to just name a few ways in order to achieve it. Essentially, whatever you do will fall along a continuum from no power to pseudo power to real power. Knowing where you are on this continuum is the first step toward understanding the power that you have as a parent and the power which you desire.
