I am currently trying to readjust my family after a divorce. We were married 12 years and I acknowledge the unhealthy way of thinking I had-depression, gaining weight to not to cause even more insecurities from the mental abuse,the biggest was not having power to be a parent everything was under minded by the ex. It is a transition time to make change happen. I am overwhelmed by the multiple mental health services I am obtaining for the family during this time of change. My daughter is having a hard time adjusting and the whole family seems to get wrapped up in her disobedience. Last night I was able to have just my son and it was much calmer and we actually had a great time.
I have moved into my own apartment as of August and the transitions seem not to be happening as fast as I would like.
Obstacles I face are having the children every other week and not much help from the ex in co-parenting. He will get angry when my daughter tells him a great story. I know this is a way she is avoiding putting pressure on her or maybe its a coping mechanism.

Anyone have some thoughtful ideas I can try? I am willing to look them over and possibly implement them. -thanks melissa emoticon
