Divorce is hard enough even in the best of circumstances. But what if:

  • your spouse is trying to turn the kids against you?

  • your ex is hauling you into court over every little thing?

  • you’re being falsely accused of child abuse or domestic violence?

  • Worst of all, what if you’ve been cut off from your children entirely?

High-conflict divorce is just about the most devastating, soul-wrecking experience imaginable. The unrelenting chaos and pain can leave you exhausted and despairing. Legal fees can become a huge strain. And most importantly, there’s the impact on your children, who may be grappling with anxiety, struggling at school, acting out, or turning to substances to cope.

How can you keep it all together? In The High-Conflict Co-parenting Wellness Planner, high-conflict divorce experts Megan Hunter and Andrea LaRochelle offer hope and a wealth of advice. The healthier you are as a parent, the better you’ll be able to help your children. Week by week, the authors guide you in taking care of yourself while navigating conflict. You’ll learn practical strategies for handling the most common co-parenting scenarios. And you’ll discover new ways to manage your own anger, worry, fear, stress, and grief.

As hard as it may be to believe right now, it is possible to move beyond the conflict. You can overcome the alienation, regain your balance, and ultimately find freedom – from the overwhelming feelings, from the drama, and from your ex’s hold on your life. This book shows you how.
