Parenting is difficult enough in a family where two parents love and respect each other. In divorce, where the respect has diminished and the love has often turned to intense dislike, co-parenting can drive one or both parents to the brink of insanity. "Joint Custody with a Jerk" offers many proven communication techniques that help divorced parents with a difficult ex-husband or ex-wife. By describing examples of common problems and offering tools to examine your role in these sticky situations, this book teaches strategies for effective mediation that are easy to apply, sensible, timely, and innovative. This revised edition takes a look at today's digital forms of communication and their importance in custody conflicts, including a brand new chapter entitled "Communicating in Our Digital World," as well as updated material throughout that helps bring age-old issues into today's context.
