Being The parent who stayed can be more beautiful than you ever imagined.
It's hard to be left taking care of your family all by yourself. Parenting alone in the wake of domestic violence, intense conflict or traumatic, unexpected events, makes being The parent who stayed even more difficult.
Are you standing in the ruins of your family wondering what the hell you have to do to get back to being ok again?
Has the amount of conflict, aggression and shame that came with separation/divorce floored your and your kids?
You deserve to be happy, no matter how awful this has been.
Parenting alone after traumatic family breakdown is relentless, lonely, scary and hard. The nights you sit on the stairs crying after the kids finally fall asleep. The days you can barely get out of bed but push on through because no-one else is going to pick up the pieces. The times you watch your children crumple into anger, despair and frustration and you simply don't know what to do.
If you feel that you're stuck in the trenches, this book is for you.
It's for you, if even lifting your eyes to the path ahead feels like putting yourself in the firing line.
It is for you if you're just about getting through the day you're in.
It's for you if you know that life cannot change when you have no perspective, no vision, and no plan.
