Getting a divorce is stressful for all parties involved. The legal and financial issues can have an especially profound impact on any kids in the family. There may be a custody battle between two parents that can hopefully be resolved amicably. Then there’s the issue of what possessions belong to which parent and how kids can have access to them. One of the most important ones is which parent is responsible for the car insurance of their teenage driver.

Parents can have a hard time figuring out how to best prepare their children for adulthood. There is no rulebook or handy guide to parenting.

This seems kind of superficial since we’re all just trying to do the same things at our core: stay happy, healthy, and capable of caring for our children.

Discipline has always been a difficult subject to navigate for parents. As children get older, they start to make decisions that severely impact themselves and the people around them. Toddlers steal a cookie from their siblings; teenagers may drink and get behind the wheel of a car. The punishment for the latter is going to require heavier-handed consequences than taking pastries.
Coping With Cancer
Getting a cancer diagnosis is one of the toughest obstacles a person can face in life. There are the physical demands of undergoing chemotherapy, weight loss, and fatigue. There are the mental and emotional struggles of wondering whether you will live to see your loved ones accomplish big things.
