Creating A Loving Family After DivorceBook - 2018
The quintessential toolbox for managing a blended family with mindfulness and love, and for creating an environment in which children can thrive. When Mashonda Tifrere's ex-husband, Swizz Beatz, married Alicia Keys, a new dynamic was born: three adults who loved and were deeply committed to raising their son, Kasseem. Millions of families reconfigure through separation, divorce, and marriage each year, and these transitions are often most challenging for the children caught in the middle. In Blend, Tifrere shares the strategies she and her co-parents learned on their journey to creating a happy and healthy blended family. She also includes insights and advice from family therapists, parenting experts, and other blended families. In this invaluable resource, both mothers and fathers will learn: why healing and self-work is the important first step to blending successfully; how to communicate effectively with your co-parents, including guidelines on how to navigate those difficult conversations; how to ground your children in their new family structures. As Tifrere recounts in this book, peace begins with a promise co-parents make to one another to always let their love of the children lead the way.
