Parenting Without Conflict – Makeup Week 2

The advantage of going to the make-up session without my co-parent was the ability to 1) Share breifly how things had changes since attending the workshop and 2) Discuss things I would have been too uncomfortable to discuss while my co-parent was present. On the flip side it was discouraging because there sat another six […]

Parenting Without Conflict – Session VI

This session started with me and my co-parent. The first thing in each session was always “are there any co-parent crisis”? I thought the fact that we had been in court on contempt charges the previous week was a crisis given the details of the case, so I raised the issue. We discussed it and […]

Parenting Without Conflict – Session V

This session took off with a bang as we spent the first 45 minutes or so of the session discussing whether or not one parent had used something that was said in the workshop in the legal arena. This was a pretty big deal because on the very first day,everyone had to sign a form […]

My co-parent still continues to be non-participatory and virtually silent in the workshops and he only speaks when he is asked to read something or when he is asked a direct question. Last […]

Parenting Without Conflict III

Well, today I attended PWC part III and one of my questions were in fact answered. I have been feeling more and more angry as the classes go by. The primary reason is that I’ve been doing most of what is being recommended for years now and it would be awful hard for someone to […]

Yesterday, I attended the second of six workshops which Judge Kenji Machida of the Los Angeles Superior Court ordered me to attend with my “co-parent”. A series of events caused me to be nearly 45minutes late to the session, but I decided that even though I would have to make up the session, I would […]

Parenting without conflict – Session I

Contempt? Ironically I’m not guilty!

Ironic because I’m feeling a lot of contempt right now, it’s just not contempt according to California Statutes. On Thursday August 4, 2005, I was served personally with papers accusing me of being in contempt for not following custody orders. My first reaction was why was this being served on me when I was represented […]
