    The Kind Approach to Co-Parenting—with Teresa Harlow - EP17

    The Kind Approach to Co-Parenting—with Teresa Harlow - EP17

    Co-parenting expert Teresa Harlow is the author of Happily Divorced: A Journey Through Divorce & Co-Parenting by the Golden Rule.

I love Emerald's insightful questions, as they always result in her interviewees diving deep. Debbie Peck's interview really speaks to me, as it reinforces my current focus on getting myself and my content on line to get myself in a position to be able to expatriate within the next 3 years.
