I just read an article in the September 12, 2011 issue of McLean’s that caught my eye.  The article written by Julia McKinnell discusses a new book for divorced parents entitled “Joint Custody with a Jerk” co-authored by Julie Ross and Judy Corcoran. Boy, the article hit home with me as in my practice I get calls on almost a daily basis about the “jerky” things that parents who are separated do to each other.  In my work as a Children’s Lawyer it also amazes me how children can be so in tune with the bad behaviour and post-separation craziness and how some parents just can’t see how their behaviour impacts these children.  I just ordered the book online…so I will blog later and let you know if it is a good read and whether it would be helpful to those who co-parent.  In the interim here’s the link to the McLean’s article:
