In Laurie Linden ‘s NY Times editorial, she writes about how she and her ex-husband together drove with their son from Minneapolis to Fort Collins to take him to college. Read this.
“We are not the winners of our neighborhood’s competition for the best divorce, but we’re on the same page when it comes to parenting,” writes Ms. Linden. The article describes with sensitivity and humor how she handles the long drive to campus, the hectic move into the dorm, and the emotional separation from her son.
This editorial is a reminder that parenting is life-long and that over time, even people who may have had adversarial divorces, are able to overcome that trauma and work together to do what’s best for their children.
