Omg Thursday has rolled around quickly and that means I've just posted my answer to one of your e-mails at "e-mail me here" on my homepage. Today it's from ‘Rick’ who has some tense handovers with his ex-wife during access visits.
Check it out by selecting the gold ‘star’ on my homepage.
Over the last few years I've worked with the Kids in the Middle charity we managed to get out 800,000 copies of our guide for parents were splitting up.
Parents were desperate for practical tips and the books flew off the shelves of GPs and health visitors offices.
TODAY’S TIP: If you're in that situation the critical thing is to keep it calm when your children are around. Yes you might be fuming as you have to see your ex on the doorstep collecting them but you can profoundly upset them if you show it.
Grit your teeth, dig deep and always put your children's needs first. Let out your anger when you're out with friends or visiting your mum - when they're not around.
I've been there, I know how hard this situation is that you can do it.
Take care of yourself and your families, Pam x
