January 2023 – Monthly Member Meeting

Monthly Member Meeting Wednesday, January 11, 2023 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM Supporting Adults and Children When New Partners Enter the Picture After Separation/Divorce Presented by Karen S. Bonnell In many of the families we work with, a parent’s new romantic partner is part of the picture, or parents anticipate dating in the future as they move through the divorce process. Karen Bonnell, a mental health professional (retired) with over 40 years of experience working with families as a therapist, divorce/co-parent coach and mediator will join us to answer some of our most pressing questions. Today, Karen helps parents Divorce Well – prepare their children for two-home family life, Co-Parent Strong – strengthen their co-parenting skills, and Step-Wise – assist with how to successfully introduce kiddos to a new romantic partner and integrate a new adult into two-home family life – best practices while moving toward stepfamily. Karen will speak to so many of the issues we have all wondered about: How does growth and development play into a child’s readiness to integrate a new adult into their sense of family? How do we help parents and the person their dating to understand the axiom that “the slower we go, the faster we’ll get there”? Help parents see, anticipate and manage the “five stepfamily challenges” that begin during the dating phase – for example, discipline. Help parents appreciate the impact of dating on their co-parenting relationship, how to discuss dating with a co-parent, and how to prevent the risk of children falling into painful loyalty binds; important considerations when developing a parenting plan that supports next-time family. Help parents begin to imagine the purpose of forming a constructive parenting coalition where all the adults communicate and work together on behalf of the kiddos… huge impact post-decree.
