Focus of Family Law Services
When engaging in mediation what should your main focus be on? We believe it should be on the needs of the KIDS! Legislators believe this too which is very clear in the statutes that have been passed in the State of Tennessee.
The courts uphold this belief too which is evident in the many rulings handed down when people simply want to get their day in court instead of maximizing the mediation process. For what it's worth one's day in court is guided through a process of painting a picture based upon facts which has no concern about your emotional story. Essentially, your story never gets told. So why want a day in court?
When it comes down to it the kids really have nothing to do with the dispute or issues at hand to resolve. It's easy to allow the hurt feelings and emotional pain to cloud the judgement of what is really best for kids. Hopefully, in a co-parenting class it was learned but worth mentioning again and again.
Kids perform their very best when both parents are involved and they are allowed to love both parents as they see fit without their parents misunderstanding of their needs. Children are made up of both parents and their self-esteem needs to be as whole and complete as possible.
Stop Parental Alienation
Parents can't control how kids feel. It should be clearly stated that any attempts to take matters into your own hands does HARMS kids and does nothing to remove the anguish of divorce. There's plenty of proof that it only destroys your relationship with your child. If you're engaged in such then STOP otherwise you will face potential jail time for violations of the Parental Bill of Rights.
