How to Help a Family Even if They Don’t Ask For Help


By: Leah Talley (Wesolowski)

I’m still of the opinion that many parents alienate their children from their ex-spouses at first by accident. I still believe a person never stops loving another person simply because they broke up. Deep down it is pain that drives them to hurt and denigrate their former love. Pain that turns into anger. Anger that is sometimes beyond control.

The best way to help someone you know is to gently remind them that the ex-spouse they are trash talking and making hateful comments about both in the presence of children who are 50% their ex’ DNA was also a person with whom they once deeply loved and that you don’t believe they were such bad judges of character.
Remind them that the children are absorbing their every word and if they believe they are made up of 50% shit it’s going to take a toll on their self esteem.
