“Divorce isn’t easy, but it doesn’t need to be bitter,” says Bonnie A. Rabinovitch-Mantel, Family Lawyer. After going through a divorce and transitioning into a blended family, Bonnie decided to make the transition from medical malpractice to family law. Bonnie’s first-hand experience in divorce and step-parenting opened her eyes to the need of strong, yet ethical family attorneys. Today, Bonnie runs her own firm where she guides families through the process of divorce in a healthy way for everyone involved.
One of the first lessons Bonnie learned as a step-parent was the need for boundaries. Even though she initially wanted to jump straight in by implementing her parenting style on the kids, Bonnie soon realized that she needed to take a few steps back. The reality is divorce is hardest on the children. Bonnie explains that having to adjust to new parents while still remaining loyal to biological parents puts a huge amount of pressure on kids. In order to prioritize the best interest of the kids, Bonnie recommends setting healthy boundaries that respect both the children and the other parent.
Tune into this week’s episode of AskMamaAmy to learn tips on setting boundaries, the importance of co-parenting, and how to make the most of your blended household.
