(Attitude Adjustment for Custody Case Litigants)
Ever since we were forced into the custody case arena in 1991, we have looked for The Right Answer. We wanted to know what the mediators, evaluators, and judges wanted to hear. We were willing to paint ourselves yellow if thats what they wanted.
(I dont even look good in yellow.)
Years of working with thousands of other parents and grandparents individually and in parent's rights groups, with child protective service agencies in nine major cities, attending seminars with counselors, attorneys and psychologists and interviewing attorneys, judges, mediators and guardian ad litems; reading many books on custody and writing several of our own we have found out here is no "the right answer".
Our cases, lives, children, communities and the laws that affect us vary to such a huge degree that there are too many answers. This book deals with what others do to us, what we do to ourselves; love, pain, fear, the past, present, and future, perception and perspective. This is not a book of legal advice or pat answers just a book of suggestions and options. Use what you can and ignore the rest.
Like Chicken Soup for the custody case, "Attitude Adjustment" gave me a place to get some perspective. And like chicken soup you can take some when ever you need it because "It couldnt hurt and probably, it will help". Nash Raeside, Long Island, NY
