Raising the Kid You Love With the Ex You Hate by Edward Farber

You and your former wife/husband are struggling to be civil to each other and you recognize the conflicts could be damaging to your child. Dr. Farber, a clinical child psychologist who’s been in practice for 30+ years, knows what you’re up against. He writes compassionately and insightfully about the concrete, doable steps you can take to avoid letting differences with your ex get in the way of being the best mom or the best dad you can be.

Conflicts inevitably arise from living in two households. You don’t have to like your ex, but, if you are going to co-parent successfully, you will still have to deal with your ex. Dr. Farber helps you navigate the upheaval with practical advice based on real-world families. His book shows you how to:

•    Know what to say, and not to say, to your child about separation and divorce
•    Cope with child support and other money issues
•    Handle the holidays and special family occasions
•    Choose and adjust to new schools
•    Introduce your child to a potential new partner
•    Co-parent when an ex has a personality disorder, addiction problem, or is a bully
•    Decide when to recruit the help of a parent coordinator
•    Raise a healthy child while co-parenting

You’ll draw strength and encouragement from the positive outcomes he’s helped hurting parents and children achieve as they confronted such gripping problem areas. Dr. Farber’s expert analysis and counsel will show you how to use co-parenting to turn your broken marriage into a working divorce that supports the emotional and developmental health of your children caught in the crossfire.

Shameful, indifferent, rapacious behavior by Dr. Farber and his staff.  Dr. F=raper..of dignity?  Recently, the man admitted to violating HIPAA by wantonly sharing info w/others willy-nilly.    A very disturbing defense. This is cardinal rule #1 in this profession and the law..but he claimed  ignorance. Also a very oxymoronic defense, since he parades the U.S. talking about knowing the law (he's an "expert").  But alas, he isn't...zero credentials to support use of the word, "expert." AND, according to a George Washington University official, Dr. F "...is a member of the voluntary  faculty..his only activity [at GWU] is to mentor at least one full-time student...[he] receives no compensation from GW and does not teach or provide any other services for the university."  But again, Dr. F uses his "clinical assistant professor" title will-nilly, misleadingly, and falsely to boost his perceived expertise. The guy clearly has mental problems..he's also been under review by several regulatory oversight authorities.  What extensive experience (aside from defrauding the public at-will) does he have?
