The article outlines the initiative led by Karen Bonnell, author of The Co-Parents Handbook and the soon to be released, The Step Family Handbook. Karen so succinctly states, “The adversarial, litigation process is expensive, built on a conflict-escalation model that often results in “win-lose” outcomes. Loss, pain, and enmity are normalized as just part of the process. The on-going conflict with high emotional impact prevents stability and places all family members in jeopardy. Children suffer.”
We must make a paradigm shift to help children thrive in divorce rather than suffer.
