    In this episode I discusses a gratitude exercise that I "accidentally" stumbled across in the kitchen. It took less than 3 minutes and it made my day much brighter. I immediately wanted to share it with you. Have a great Christmas!

    Thom on REVIVE Podcast

    I was on the REVIVE Podcast with Sunny and John and we had a great conversation. We discuss my latest writing "Drama-Free Drop-Offs" and get into details about how to frame your Co-Parent in a way such as to come from a place of peace. We discuss how to give yourself permission to grieve past relationships and do the "Reconstruct Your Previous Partner" exercise with them. Enjoy this fun conversation.

    Episode 36: How To Talk Without Arguing

    Thom gives three tools to use when talking to your CoParent without arguing. These simple frames of reference can give you leverage in any situation, but are specifically created for those times when you are talking about Parenting Time.

    These are to (1) make your request known (2) use body language that is consistent with your request and (3) to "be with" their response.

    Episode 35: Confronting CoParent Anxiety

    Anxiety is scary. It comes up for different people in different ways, yet there are a few things I've found that seem to help just about everyone I discuss this nervousness with. 

    I share what I learned from a panic attack at a school meeting as it relates to the relationship I have with my CoParent. These are all lessons that we can learn from.

Compassionate advice

I appreciate the use of business concepts and psychology to learn better approaches to a delicate topic. The "justice mechanism" episode was especially insightful. Thanks, and keep it up!
