Hello everyone, it’s Pam and Shelley here, again. Week One on the Divorced Parent Telesummit was filled with beneficial financial advice, helpful, easy to implement parenting solutions, thought provoking tips and ideas for how to handle dating with kids, and what you can expect when blending families. If you attended all three sessions, you know there was an abundance of content provided each evening.
Week number two promises to be equally packed full of information you can begin using immediately. Same time 9 pm ET/6pm PT. Here is what you can look forward to in week two of the Divorced Parent Telesummit.
Monday, March 19th we start the week off with Ronae Jull- “The Secret to Parenting Teens after Divorce.” Ronae says that she is “ridiculously optimistic about teenagers.” Ronae knows that parenting teenagers is tough! She tackles challenging parenting issues head on, from a been-there done-that perspective. Having raised four children to adulthood, there are a few things she’s learned – both from doing things right and from doing them wrong. She is known as the Hope Coach.
Pam and I know how devastating it is to go through divorce. We also know how unpredictable and stressful it can be parenting teenagers. We felt this was an area where single parents could really benefit from extra parenting tips, tools and guidance. Ronae is so passionate and knowledgeable about teenagers we knew she would bring great wisdom and value to our audience. Her website is ronaejull.com.
Hello everyone, it’s Pam and Shelley here. We are thrilled to be kicking off the next Divorced Parent Telesummit on Monday, March 12th 9pm ET/6pm PT. We wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a bit about the wonderful experts we have lined up for you and what you can look forward to learning during the first week.
Monday, March 12th we have Susan Epstein, Parenting Coach and certified Brief Strategic Family Therapist. Susan has extensive knowledge and expertise to empower parents. One of the reasons we asked Susan to be a speaker was her abundance of resources and whole host of practical, easy-to-follow strategies that you can immediately put into action. We know divorced parents especially can appreciate simple, practical solutions. Her website is www.parentingpowers.com
Tuesday, March 13th we have Lisa Decker, Miss Money Matters® – who is the founder of Divorce Money Matters® www.DivorceMoneyMatters.com, a CDFA™ and a “Strategic Divorce Advisor™. We know that finances can be a huge source of stress for many divorced parents. Often time’s one spouse may handle the finances for the family which means the other spouse now has to assume the responsibility and may need help. Some people may not realize the advantages of working with a Financial Advisor before, during and/or after their divorce. Lisa has some valuable advice and tips for everyone whether you are separated, in the process of divorce or divorced.
Wednesday, March 14th you may remember Deesha Philyaw and Mike Thomas who host the podcast Parenting Matters on Blog Talk Radio. They also established coparenting101.org as a resource for those who find themselves parenting after divorce or separation for whatever reason. Not only do Mike and Deesha have an amazing co-parenting relationship, they have also both remarried. We invited Deesha and Mike back to discuss dating after divorce, how to handle dating with your children, and their advice on the complexity of “blending or merging” families. As I told Deesha and Mike, we could do a whole Telesummit on this topic alone and still have so much more to cover. You don’t want to miss this session, even if you are not ready to start dating, or if you are currently in a relationship. Mike and Deesha have some significant information to help you make good decisions for both you and your children.
Pam and I want to say a special THANK YOU to all of our expert speakers who take time out of their busy, busy, schedules to share their experiences, wisdom, education, and training to provide help for divorced parents. All of our speaker’s lives have been impacted by divorce in one way or another. We so appreciate their hearts and desire to support divorced parents.
Be sure to provide your name and email in the box at the top right corner of this page to receive all of the details for the calls. If you cannot make the live call, you will have 24 hours to listen to the replay for free. We look forward to having you join us.
Please give us your feedback on the calls. We love to hear from you!

In my last post I talked about what you can do when the other parent makes poor choices unintentionally. This may result because he/she does not really know better or has not thought through the situation. Since poor choices made by a parent impact the children, I suggested how you might address the situation with the other parent.
Today I want to address how you might help your children when the other parent makes poor choices or bad decisions without thinking (or caring) about the implications it will have on the children. I know how frustrating it can be when the other parent makes poor life choices that impact your children, maybe even for life. One of the more common issues for which you will have no control or input is when and how the other parent chooses to date, and who they bring around your children. Although I will talk about poor choices related to dating, the concepts can easily be translated to other poor choices made by a parent.
Some parents desperately want to be in another relationship, possibly your marriage ended because of the other parent being unfaithful to your marriage. In these situations, when one parent jumps into a relationship he/she is thinking of themselves and not the best interest of the children. All the while your ex is setting an example for your children. Your first response may be anger, hurt, pain, frustration, or fear. I encourage you Read More Here…
