In this program, attorney John Schuman of Devry Law joins Steve Peck to discuss the voice of a child during divorce.
Divorcing is tough enough, but add children to the mix, and divorce just got more complicated. Some parents get so caught up in the drama of divorce that they forget to think about how their children might be processing this restructuring of their families.
Protecting our children’s innocence should be the priority when divorcing, and this program will help you gain insight into what your children might be experiencing, regardless of their ages. In this discussion, Mr. Schuman also provides valuable advice to parents, especially those in high-conflict situations.
Topics in the program include:
- The effect divorce has on children
- Kids don’t want to decide where to live
- Children want to have a voice in the situation too
- The harm of fighting with your ex at sporting and public events
- Co-parenting around your children’s activities
- The concerns children have when their parents separate
- And much more.
Always remember, your children are watching you and how you handle your divorce. They will face their own conflicts in life, and, in many cases, model the behavior they witnessed in you. Be the best role model you can be during this very tough time. Your kids deserve it and there is nothing more important than protecting children during divorce.

Steve shares his story and thanks listeners for writing kind words during this tough time.
Also in the program, Joanie talks about the retreat she had for women who are in the midst of or post cancer. Joanie runs a wonderful non-profit that provides these special women with a day of well deserved pampering.

On this episode of The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch, our guest Stephen Rosenfield http://familysupportexpo.com and http://rosenfieldmediation.com is paying it forward. Stephen is using his work as a Mediator and making a difference – with his mediation practice and the launch of The Family Support Expo in Toronto, Canada on October 20/21, 2012.
Whether it is a medical health issue, a mental health issue or a transitional issue, these considerations are often stigmatized within society. We have learned to hide our problems to avoid rejection and ridicule. But concealing our problems only makes them worse. Nobody is perfect, and everyone experiences challenges from time to time. You may not be struggling with one of these issues, but you definitely know someone who is.
If you’re going through a separation or divorce, you are not alone. 40% – 50% (statistics vary depending on where you live) of couples are just like you. Separation and divorce could be the largest or second largest expense in your lifetime. Parents rarely do well if their children struggle, and children rarely do well if their parents struggle. There are many new considerations and circumstances and we appreciate that you need resolution on all fronts.
Topics in this program include:
• The benefits of The Family Support Expo – the exhibitors, speakers, giveaways and more.
• The $24,000 dilemma.
• Considerations to developing a parenting plan when your child has ADHD, special needs or mental health issues.
• How depression and mental health affects the family dynamic.
• Elder-care and divorce.
• Helping the world to be a better place.
• How your mediation impacts future generations.
• Going forward fairly in mediation.
This interview covers issues to mediate like you’ve never heard before, and one that should be on your download list!

Dr. Banschick explains that it’s quite common for divorcing individuals to feel like they are the victim. This can even be the case for people who have had an affair, because they might see the reason they did so was that their partner wasn’t paying attention to them.
When relationships go wrong, your partner might be pushing all of your hot buttons, setting you off into a rage to the point of verbal or domestic violence. We’ll explore the role control and narcissistic behavior can play in this harmful behavior during divorce.
Above all, divorcing couples should put their children first and protect their innocence by not dragging them into their relationship problems. It is vital that you learn to manage your emotions in order to avoid verbal and physical abuse and manipulation, for the sake for your children and your own peace of mind.
