Who doesn’t know the current statistic that 50% of all marriages end in divorce?  Even if you haven’t experienced divorce yourself, odds are very high that you have someone close to you who is or has been through a divorce. But few people talk openly about the emotional toll they go through while contemplating divorce.

 

In this episode, we welcome Erin Royer, the founder of Your Village an online resource for parents and host of the Parenting Beyond Discipline podcast. She gives parents tools to support their children to reach their individual potentials. Erin recently released her first book, "The Connected Parents Guide to Toddlerhood - Fixes for 7 Common struggles"! 

 

We talk openly and honestly about the guilt that so many go through when trying to decide if it’s time to divorce, what the research says on the effects of parents staying in an unhappy relationship, and what parents can do to support their kids (and their own) mental health during and after divorce.
