Believe In Your Family

When you are dealing with a tough situation do you ever question how you are handling it? I have been going through this whole divorce and feeling pretty good about how I have been dealing with it. But it is always nice to get confirmation and a different perspective. I have found this with the book "Mom's House, Dad's House".

I knew I would like it when the first chapter introduced the idea of two homes, two families of equal importance.

"The Family Bill of Rights"

"Each child has the right to have two homes where he or she is cherished and given the opportunity to develop normally.
Each child has the right to a meaningful, nuturing relationship with each parent.
Each parent and child has the right to call themselves a family regardless of how the children's time is divided.
Each parent has the responsibility and right to contribute to the raising of his or her child.
Each child has the right to have competent parents and to be free from hearing, observing, or being part of their parents' arguments or problems with one another.
Each parent has the right to his or her own private life and territory and to raise the children without reasonable interference from the other parent."
