One thought on “When Parallel Parenting is the Best Choice

  • August 8, 2016 at 6:08 am

    What happens when one of the parents is an otherwise functioning adult but has untreated ADHD, FAS, ASD or some other impairment that makes for frequent boundary crossings and rule breaking along with false accusations and irrational communication? (They insist they are fine and not the one with the problem.)

    The other parent is left frustrated, dealing with arbitrariness, no-shows – and is attacked for mentioning the existence of a boundary or rule, for stating the expectation of compliance (eg. be home on Sunday nights when it is the time for me to return our son into your care).

    The child is – we all know this well – caught in the middle, time and again: his or her destiny unless a solution is found!
