It’s a miracle of the program that the people I start off disliking intensely wind up being the people I am most glad to see.
This program really works!
I just got an email from a former spouse who had recently challenged the length of visitation this summer because my kid needs time to get ready for school. I had replied to the challenge with a very brief message offering to reduce the visitation by half as much as the ex wanted and offering also to help with the getting ready process. I left out accusations and explanations and all the other stuff I would have included in a previous life. In response, today the ex wrote that it’ll just be fine to return the kid a couple of days before school starts, which was the original plan.
We’re behaving like sane people! I love it.
