I apologize for the long hiatus. After a somewhat eventful pregnancy and adjusting to life with a newborn baby, I’m finally getting back to a routine and hope to start posting again at least once a week.

I’m currently reading The Truth About Children and Divorce by Robert E. Emery, Ph.D. This is an excellent book! If you are in the midst of any stage of divorce and have children I highly recommend adding this book to your reading list.

I’m halfway through reading “Second Chances” by Judith Wallerstein and what I’m noticing so far is that there is a wealth of research and insight on families where the kids end up living with the mother following a divorce, but not the other way around. The book implies that many of the effects on children is profoundly related to the limited contact with or complete absence of the father. I’m just curious how the effects are different when the father is the custodial parent and the children have limited contact with the mother.

I would love to be at this conference right now! This is the first I’ve heard of it and it sounds like a great thing. Maybe some year I’ll be able to go 🙂
