In this podcast, we have a dad calling in who is suffering from PTSD while going through a divorce. Not an easy scenario, but can he get full custody and keep a good relationship with his kids?
I discuss the stories of 3 single dads I interviewed recently for The Man UP Project TV Show. Their stories illustrate lessons I have been speaking about that are instructional for any man or woman who would consider a relationship, marriage, having children or divorce.
No, it’s not the beginning of a joke. Yes that really happened. This past fall I was sitting at the bar of a Manhattan restaurant next to my friend, Adam Jacobs, who is a Rabbi at Aish Center, New York. We were having a cold beverage to celebrate the premiere of his documentary.
I wish I had the experience and wisdom then I have now because I would not have been in such mortal fear for Michelle and my failure as her Father. God knows his work and Michelle is in many ways, most like me (despite her frequent denials) of all my children.
One of the personality traits that successful parents develop is the ability to multitask. I don’t mean the normal kind of multitasking that one does at work where you complete an expense report while on the phone with the copier salesperson. I mean the kind of “multitasking on steroids” that allows you to handle multiple children at varying age levels, while having little sleep for extended periods of time.
