Format: Paperback
Excellent resource for emotional instability outcomes as it relates to joint custody of parents in conflict of pre-school (children). I broke down in tears, when I read the part, "mommy has a home, daddy has a home, I don't have a home" ...this was an actual statement by my 4 year old daughter and indicated in this book. If only the law considered childrens' best interests with the schizophrenic arrangement of joint custody lacking stability and consistency. Who really pays for these kids later in life? Taxpayers. If you can remove the disease why do you need a treatment plan? Who's industry is this, mental health? If you are in the Denver, Englewood, Colorado area, do not use Sharona Stone as a CFI who misrepresents herself as a doctor. From my experience she lacks the knowledge and care for families in conflict and is power hungry, unfortunately it's not illegal to be incompetent and the law allows her to make a unprofessional, lack of objectivity, bias recommendation, negligence, a true individual who possessing illusory superiority. The truth unfailingly outshines lies and deceptions.
