Two Happy Homes: A Great Resource for Divorced and Single Parents

two-happy-homesTwo Happy Homes is a wonderful website for divorced and single parents. I was recently introduced to this site when I was asked to write an article on a related topic.

You can view my article, titled “When Your Ex Bad-Mouths You In Front of Your Kids,” in the Co-Parenting Community section. Please let me know what you think!

This website features a number of resources for co-parents, including expert advice, a forum for fellow parents to stay connected and support one another, and help with organizing your busy lives. I’m honored to be a part of this community as part of the expert advice section and look forward to writing more on this topic!

If you have an idea related to divorce, single parenting, co-parenting, etc. that I can write on for this site, please let me know!

    Hi Kim, I am one of the administrators for the Parental Alienation Awareness Organization USA. The people that frequent and share resources from this site are looking for ways to deal with the invisible emotional abuse that 25% of children of divorce experience when they are pressured to reject a parent that were once had a close relationship with. These children’s minds are manipulated into thinking their other parent is dangerous, incompetent and unworthy of their love. The behavior has been described as Stockholm Syndrome, sadly. Please feel free to contact me for peer reviewed articles and other resources and visit http://www.PAAOusa.org to help us educate others on how they can help prevent this form of child abuse. Thank you, Cindy

    Hi Kim, You have a great site here and some wonderful resources for parents to use. I myself have been dealing with the issues of my children’s father bad mouthing me in front of them and not encouraging a loving relationship with me. I have been working diligently with my children to maintain a wonderful relationship with them, but see the problems that arise when one parent brainwashes the children against the other parent. As Cindy mentioned, it is like Stockholm Syndrome and also like a cult following. Getting the word out and helping other parents learn how to work with this situation is imperative to get this problem resolved. I also firmly believe in educating the court systems as well. Parents go to court and tell the judge they have not seen their children in weeks, months and even years and the judge will say many times, ” I cant make the children go”. I myself have been coaching other parents in working with the situation and how to successfully maintain a relationship with the children, and what to do when the relationship is severed. Please feel free to contact Cindy above for more information on this horrible situation and the more people we can educate the more we can save the children from this horrible abuse.

    • Thank you Lisa for reinforcing this very important issue (and all to common)! I agree with you that it is devastating when a parent is not able to see their children and they are good, loving, and devoted parents.
