  1. My husband of 4 years (been together for 6) just moved out last Tuesday and served me with divorce papers all on the same day. I wasn’t aware these things were going to happen. Now our three children and I (10, 8 and 7 months) only have 2 weeks to find a new place to live (the house was owned by his family’s trust). After a couple days of embarrassing behavior, I’ve stopped chasing him and have begin to focus on myself and my children. While he says he still loves me and the children dearly, he just can’t be married to me. There was alcoholism on his part that he is now sober but there was a real struggle for a couple of years in our marriage. I recognize my part in the break-up of our marriage and am making changes to how I react to situations with my PsyD. However, I had a question, he said he likes it when I send photos of the kids, should I continue to send those out like I have always done or stop sending them to him? He is having short frequent visitation of 2 hours every other evening where it’s just like (as my middle one says) the “good olden days” and he joins us for dinner and our regular activities. Am I being too accommodating to him? On top of being the caregiver of the children, I’ve also got a professional full-time job that thankfully allows a ton of flexibility. But it’s all starting to feel like a bit much… I don’t want to be a jerk, I truly enjoy his company with the children and we do have a good time, but I don’t know if I need to pull back more. I’m really just trying to do what’s best for the children here.
    Thanks so much.

    1. Dear Lisa,
      thanks for your email. You and your relationship have been through a rough time. Good on your awareness. I am sure your PsyD will be a of use here too.

      I am a big advocate of lots of family time, this is great for bonding and when he leaves he gets to miss all of your company. All the better if you enjoy it and have fun, really lovely. I advise my coaching clients to maintain and say yes to all family time they can work etc permitting. And yes send photo’s of the kids, I mean how fabulous is it when your dad wants to see pictures of your love – children! Wonderful stuff and heartening. So I would keep it up.

      I want everyone who reads this, to know this. Two parents, however, they manage the organization cooperatively (I mean either as coparents or as their spouse) are the best for your children. So work at it guys!
      good luck and my pleasure Lisa.
      Cheers Philipa
