Emotional Connection between Parent and Child

“Kids not close with parents prone to educational and behavioral problems” “… a recent study shows.”

“The report found that out of 14,000 U.S. children, 40 percent lacked strong emotional bonds with their parents, which researchers say can hinder them later in life.”

“Researchers from Princeton University, Columbia University, the London School of Economics and Political Science and the University of Bristol found that kids under 3 years old who don’t develop “secure attachments” with their mothers and fathers are more likely to be aggressive, defiant and hyperactive when they’re adults. They will also have poorer language skills and behavioral problems.”

Divorced Parents and Discipline Choices

“Rosemond: Father’s lack of discipline a problem for mom”

“In the attempt to be fair to both adult parties, divorce court judges often make rulings that are distinctly unfair to children. The sort of back-and-forth custody arrangement …”

“… when parents divorce, children don’t have attorneys arguing on their behalf.”

“The problem is compounded by fathers who are nothing more than large playmates when they have their kids. This makes it difficult for their children to transition back to mothers who expect obedience and impose structure. Needless to say, this is no picnic for the mothers either.”

“The only solution is for you to stay the course. Even though you’re in a “two steps forward, one step back” situation, continue to discipline consistently and with purpose. Eventually, your efforts will pay off.”

Overstressed Fathers Parenting Children

Sue McAllister of the San Jose Mercury News online writes about Overstressed Fathers Parenting Children. There is more to this topic than first meets the eye. Now you overstressed Moms out there try to keep an open mind. There is a stereo type that continues today, which compels men, fathers, to believe that they are responsible even for those occurrences out of their immediate control. There is also the alpha man out there that has to succeed at everything. Become enlightened. This piece is a great read. It takes the reader through the thoughts of three fathers.

Overstressed Fathers Parenting Children

“Fathers struggle with work-life balance”

“Clint Schmidt, a father of two, finds it tough to juggle family life, a startup job and two hours of commuting every day. New dad Chris Schwarz is managing well so far, partly thanks to a short commute and bosses who also have young children at home. And single parent Garrett Gonzales has mastered the balancing act for now, but he worries about the next stage in his life.”

“”Dads feel tremendous responsibility and anxiety around the protecting and providing for their families,” says Jerrold Lee Shapiro, professor of counseling psychology at Santa Clara University and author of three books on fatherhood, as well as the new baby-boomer-centric “Finding Meaning, Facing Fears in the Autumn of Your Years.” “And so what do you do with the anxiety about feeling left out of your kid’s life, or feeling you’re as distant or more distant than your own father was? They fight against that.””

To counteract that fear, he says, he tries hard to focus on “spending time with the baby and blocking out all the negative stuff. … It’s better than thinking about everything unraveling because you’ve got so much to juggle.”

“How single fathers navigate the delicate balance between their kids and their love lives”

“As a single dad wading back into the dating pool, Daniel Ruyter was surprised how many women lost interest when he revealed, always in the first conversation, that he had a son.”

“”At first I took it personally,” said the Orlando, Fla., information technology analyst, who was 32 when he divorced and got joint custody of his then 5-year-old son.”

“”I think sometimes the women I dated didn’t realize that single dads still have parenting obligations that, for me, came first,” said Ruyter, now 36, who maintains the blog “Memoirs of a Single Dad” (memoirsofasingledad.com) and recently self-published …”

“As fathers grow more engaged in child rearing, and courts more willing to grant them custody, single dads increasingly are dating with kids in tow – in heart if not in hand.”

“Some 2.8 million single dads live with their kids …”

“Fatherly Advice for Anyone Dating A Guy With Kids”

“If you’re looking for a relationship, it’s generally best not to date a dad who is still separated because usually he’s not finished grieving. There’s no rule, but six months after divorce is a safe bet.”

“Know yourself. If you like to party a lot, or insist on leisurely Sunday brunch, or if you’ll feel slighted to not be included in everything, save everyone heartache and don’t date a dad.”

Divorce Complicates How to Discipline Children

The Swartz Law Firm from Warren, Michigan put up a short piece about the emotions and difficulties after divorce with regard to how Divorce Complicates How to Discipline Children. So, take a look. They have listed a source for their comments, which is not a bad website. As always, the source Link is below the excerpt.

Divorce Complicates How to Discipline Children

“Disciplining Kids After a Divorce: Parents’ Styles May Differ”

“It’s often awkward when your ex-spouse gets a new partner. When this happens, it can introduce many complications into your child custody arrangement.”

“Take, for example, the issue of discipline. There is wide disagreement in our society regarding whether spanking is acceptable. If your ex-spouse’s boyfriend or girlfriend has different views on corporal punishment, particularly spanking, that is definitely a cause for concern.”

“‘Of course, it may be that the types of permissible discipline are spelled out in the custody arrangement. But it can be hard for even the most detailed plans to cover every contingency.’”

“The age of the children is naturally a major factor in determining what types of discipline are appropriate. For toddlers, the main response that parents use to improper behavior may be timeouts. For teenager, parental responses could include curfews, restrictions on driving privileges, and limits on the use of electronic devices.”

“No matter what the age of the child, however, the addition of a new adult into the parenting mix can increase the risk of sending the child mixed messages on what is acceptable behavior and what is not.”

“There is also the question of the emotional impact it can have on kids when a parent gets a new partner. For obvious reasons, the feelings that children have about this can become more acute when a new boyfriend or girlfriend moves in with mom or dad.”

“Both parents should be prepared to recognize these emotions and address them respectfully. Life goes on, to be sure, but the changes need to be handled sensitively.”

Divorced Parents Communicating with Children Successfully

Author and divorce coach, Rosalind Sedacca, has written for the Huffington Post about Divorced Parents Communicating with Children Successfully. She relates that most parenting experts agree with the bits and pieces she has chosen to present. This parenting expert does agree with the statements in the excerpt below. Divorce is painful and it can be overwhelming. Avoid allowing your personal reactions to your current situation darken the communication with your children. Obtain the support that you need for dealing with your divorce from a source other than your children. Many divorce people seek solace from their children, due to the overwhelming feelings of being alone. Not good. In divorce, children are dealing with their own incongruent and ambiguous feelings. Children do not have the stamina or maturity to deal with your feeling related to the divorce. There is some good advice here.

Children and Divorce

Children and Divorce | Parenting 101 SuccessIn The Sydney Morning Herald (http://www.smh.com.au) there is a very interesting piece pertaining to the Children and Divorce. It is questioning whether the concept of a ‘good divorce’ exists at all in the piece entitled, “There’s no such thing as a good divorce: the kids always suffer.” Adele Horin, a Sydney Morning Herald columnist and reporter does a nice job with this sensitive information.

That’s right folks; this piece is from Australia. Just in case you didn’t know… Australia has children, parents, and families, too. I have found that a fresh perspective often clarifies cloudy issues.

This is uses many quotes from Paul Amato, the lead author and professor of sociology at Pennsylvania State University. He has written a research paper in the Journal, Family Relations, entitled, “Reconsidering the ‘Good Divorce.”’

This page has quite a few advertisements, yet the article is well worth reading.

“There’s no such thing as a good divorce: the kids always suffer”

“EVEN a ”good” divorce may not protect children from the fall-out of a marriage breakdown. A new study questions the concept of the ”good divorce”, a term popularised in the 1990s to describe a break-up in which the parents are…

“The study found the offspring of ”good” divorces were no better off on a range of wellbeing measures than those of divorced parents who did not get on.”

“But the ”good divorce” group had better relationships with their fathers and, as children, fewer behavioural problems.”

Children and Divorce | Parenting 101 SuccessI’m a little disillusioned that Australia has the same problems with the aftermath of divorce that we have here in the US. I’ve always wanted to travel there and have somewhat romanticized the country.

Children and Divorce | Parenting 101 SuccessI’m just sort of sad and empty of thought right now. Divorce is not a happy topic.
