From the Back Cover
It's a fact that parenting is hard enough in a family where two parents love and respect each other. After a divorce, however, when that respect has diminished and the love has often turned to intense dislike, co-parenting can be nearly impossible, driving one or both parents to the brink of insanity. Joint Custody with a Jerk
offers many proven communication techniques to help you deal with your difficult ex-husband or ex-wife. By outlining common problems and teaching tools to examine your own role in these sticky situations, this book conveys strategies for effective mediation that are easy to apply, sensible, timely and innovative.
This revised edition of a bestselling classic sheds light on how today's digital forms of communication can both hurt and help in custody conflicts, and it offers updated information throughout that brings age-old issues into the present day.
