Helping your adult children handle your divorce

There's all sorts of advice out there about how couples should break the news to their children that they are divorcing and how they should remain united as co-parents even when they're no longer together.

Further, much of the co-parenting advice given to divorced parents with young kids also applies when the "kids" are adults themselves.

The term "bird nest" may take on a whole new definition if you're one of many recently divorced dads in New York. A year or so ago, if your children would have asked you to help them build a bird nest, you may have logically assumed they were talking about a school project or a new ornithology hobby. If the other parent poses the same question to you in an attempt to achieve an amicable child custody agreement in divorce, it means something altogether different.

Tips for sending your kids back to school after parents split

If you're among those in New York who are fathers and also happen to be divorced, you likely understand how challenging single parenting can be.
