This book needs an update in a bad way.

Overall, I felt alot of the advice was probably good and worth trying.

Specifically, I'm not sure how useful much of this book is if you are in a high conflict process. Alot 0f advice is tailored to two parents who are reasonable and both parties actually want to be partners in childrearing.

There are many many references to pagers and beepers so I wonder how many references are entirely outdated or how significantly family law has changed in the nearly 25 years since the last update.

additionally alot of information seems to be very idealist circumstances. I've had 3 lawyers in my divorce so far and I'm meeting with a mediator tomorrow and none of the process of how she describes lawyers and mediation have happened the way she describes.

I'm going to attempt to use some of her parenting plan items but I'm not sure how that will work out.

Great resource

This was a very helpful resource for all areas of divorce including how to talk to your kids, your relationship with your former spouse, how to create a parenting plan, verbiage that is harmful to your children, how to pick a mediator or attorney, finances, etc. Highly recommend.
