You have to learn to organize your time to get the most out of every day and in the same instance you have to “Be Good To You”. The majority of our time is caught up in daily rituals. Get up, get the children off to school, go to work, come home and prepare dinner, get the children to bed then we get up and do it over and over again.
I recently received a notice about the death of one of my high school classmates. He had lost his battle with cancer. This prompted me to reflect on my life and thus wanting to share my feelings with others.
Joint custody is wonderful when it works, as it keeps both parents involved with the child’s life. It gives the child a strong sense of security when both parents can discuss his/her needs and wants. It is also a good way to help parents avoid being played off against each other. The kids can’t manipulate their parents if they can maintain an united front.
Think about it for a minute: you’re not bound to making meals that fit in with all those different school activities; you’re not on almost permanent taxi duty. You can actually reclaim your life – so make sure that you do.
