Re: Parenting Facilitator
I am working on this with my X...that is, we are in consultation with a mediator who is intending to help us sort out some of this. It's slow going for sure...ours is also acrimonious, I am the one who is still quite angry, my X seems to have walked away onto a happier life with someone else and really wonders why I am so upset.
Parenting discussions have been absent to this point - he seems to think he can't bring anything up with me, whereas I have a lot to say and think we have a lot to decide about.
So far there has not been a lot decided but I am hopeful that if I can't get the point across (that co-parenting involves more than deciding when she's spending time with him), the mediator can.
I can report back if you like.
Best of luck - I would suggest, at least if possible, to find someone you both "like" enough (this doesn't have to mean you are agreeing, mind you, just that you each individually don't have any complaints about the person after a first meeting. Trust as you go forward with a third party would be pretty key in my books).
