I find information in your podcast very helpful and organized. One tiny suggestion: may be lessen the usage of word ‘guys’ and use ‘men’ instead. Just makes it feel I am not listening about a bar clan problems.
ATTN MOMS NEEDING INSIGHTS! This is a great father focused podcast!
While I am a mother, & in a nightmare high-conflict situation I would’ve never imagined would ever happen to me, yet alone in my parenting journey, it’s my reality, my child’s & child’s father!
I am rather disgusted by the fact that it is not only an industry, but now it is very much focused on “Mom vs Dad” in regards to parties, & even more marketed like this podcast & it’s practices. I think for Mother’s especially when in “High-Conflict” custody/visitation disputes, including anyone that is facing family court with abuse of any kind as factors, need to help themselves by endless research, & seeking out education of any kind that will be helpful for you. I often have podcasts like this playing in the background while I am working, & especially when prepping for something for my case, but I love this one!
•FYI: “Parental Alienation” is and has been deemed to be “JUNK SCIENCE”! It’s just a money making tool for the already cash cow that is anything related to family law! While, we are not perfect, the truth ALWAYS comes out! Do not compromise your credibility in accusatory actions that usually have justified reasoning when you remove the conflict! Nobody is a “winner” in family law, especially when you are a good parent who is only exercising their concerns for the children’s best interests, & don’t think it’s just about YOU! Even if you’re being targeted! Kids will be able to access all of our files likely someday to see what exactly happened between parents, & keep this in mind for the future, as parenting is a lifetime opportunity that more than ever, if you are in a position for compromise of your child’s relationship with you. Essentially emotional reactions & decisions in how you go through this awful situation, emotional decisions typically never have a good outcome.
While specifically targeted for men/fathers, it’s absolutely paramount in your research educating yourself on what can be & absolutely feels like an endless process, all women/moms need/should listen to men/fathers based podcasts & reading materials! I have learned a lot more about the way that my ex is potentially thinking, if he might be listening to these same things, & how to better objectively handle any current & future litigation!
I think it’s a great podcast, as each episode is focused on singular too cs, all of which are extremely relevant, but don’t drag on. They are fairly shorter than others, & some I wish being longer episodes, but all of them are helpful. I think you’ll find helpful insights, verbiage to strengthen your documents, and just overall help you find more information out there while you have to endure this situation that’s not fun for anyone involved! Which is apart of my last point...
As women, we are typically much more likely to be the more “emotional” party due to the biases that are apart of our culture, and we are generally the primary caregivers for our children, married or not, as I am in an unmarried parenting visitation dispute with a history of abuse, & my child’s father is also a lawyer himself! So I am sure you can only imagine how hard it has been, & prolonged. Especially when you are in a impossible situation with such emotional & lifelong impacts on all parties involved.
My personal approach? Stay consistent, be honest, transparent, trust your gut, remain engaged in being the best parent you can, live life as-if a PI is always watching you, & know that you’ve got to be your child’s, & best advocate! Also, if you have a High-Conflict case with someone who is manipulative, they can’t hold up their facade for the long-haul! The truth ALWAYS comes out, so only you, & HOPEFULLY your lawyer only know what exactly is your case, & nobody is special in the few minutes before a judge!
