I enjoyed this short, but punchy post from The Smirking Cat on "Healing Families of Divorce." Here's an excerpt:
Treat your ex at least as well as you would a business partner.
you liked him/her enough at one time to have sex and have kids, so grow
the hell up. The kids deserve parents who can work together, make
decisions together, and basically not be ninnies. That requires both of
you, so suck it up and be a parent.
Lots of stuff that bears repeating, for all sides. The thing I like about this post is that it keeps the emphasis on what things feel like for the kids if the adults are acting like… children. (Good thing this site isn't real, as I'm wildly allergic to cats!)
Also, check out the new blog by my good friend and fellow Austin Writergrrl, Kimber at The Inner Bitch Chronicles.
'Course, anything with "bitch" in the title is okay by me, plus, she's a really good writer (can you say Playgirl magazine? I've wanted to buy copies when her articles have come out, but chicken-y me just can't imagine myself actually handing that over to the cashier at BookPeople or Borders). There's also a guest stint by another Austin Writergrrl, the fabulously talented and award-winning Wendy Wheeler.
Give it a gander!
