My Interview With Co-Parenting101

by Carolyn on April 12, 2010

Well, over this past beautiful weekend, I devoted my blogging time to some website maintenance.  I was finding that my category list was no longer specific enough and therefore not an effective way to navigate through my posts.  In the beginning, it didn’t seem like much of a problem but as my content grows it feels more and more important that you be able to find the information you are looking for quickly and without frustration.

So using the new and improved table of contents to the right, I hope you find your browsing experience to be much improved.  If you happen to notice a category that I have missed or that you would have liked to see included, please feel free to let me know.

And I found an unexpected benefit as well!  As tedious as wading through and categorizing each post was, it made me notice a post that was missing from my collection.  You see, months ago I did an interview for one of my favorite co-parenting websites, coparenting101.  It was published back in November as a two part series and I can hardly believe that I never pointed you all towards it until now.  Here are the links:

Adult Child of Divorce: Interview with Carolyn Grona, Part I

Weren’t They BOTH My Parents, All of the Time?”: Interview with Carolyn Grona, Part II

It was the first interview I was asked to do shortly after I started this website and I was really proud of how it turned out. I would imagine that divorced parents and step parents will find the information the most useful, but fellow children of divorce may also find some similarity in sentiment. I would love to know if you shared the same experiences, thoughts or feelings.  I would encourage you to leave your comments either on the coparenting101 site, or here.

“In the end, what is really important to me for my children to
learn is that relationships can survive conflict. That people can
respectfully disagree, get angry and still love each other. And still
remain present in each other’s lives.” ~ i wrote a post a few months back about the things i have learned… learning that you can be angry and still love someone has been one of the hardest for me… my parents were always angry and always used “leaving” as their way of dealing with it… and when i say always it is because they actually divorced when i was one but were on again/off again until i was 16… 15 years of “leaving”… i have found that i tend to just throw in the towel and walk away as an adult… i am overcoming this… i work hard on it… and it is not an easy task to overcome a learned behaviour… especially one that is so deep seated… and it is extremely important that i don’t pass this on to my own children… i want them to be fighters… but not in the negative way :-)

I totally get it, Holly. I’m trying too. I hope so much that I will succeed. I never want them to wonder if I won’t talk to them or be a part of their lives if they do something wrong. And I don’t want them to think that’s an answer for them either.
