Lucky # 13
F or President Obama and every American leader before him, the number 13
has represented hope, prosperity and freedom. Contrary to what the general
public believes about this often cursed numeral, our Fore Fathers and all
the “fathers” after them think the number is swell. Why? Well, the U.S. had
13 original colonies, which eventually turned into states, and thus it’s associated
with our nation’s beginnings. Below are all the ways the number shows up on each
dollar bill (Go ahead, you know you want to pull out your wallet to check):

Divorce can be a nasty time in anyone’s life…
especially when children and balancing a
career are concerned. Parent Coordination
(PC) is a problem-solving service offered to
parents that are going through — or have
been through — a divorce. The goal of PC is to
offer professional assistance to parents who
need help learning to work together to keep
their children free from exposure to parental
conflict. A Parent Coordinator can assist in
the creation of a parenting plan, monitor
compliance and help resolve disputes as they
arise. For attorneys and courts, the goal of the
Parent Coordinator is to help their clients avoid
chronic litigation and comply with court orders.
Litigation can get out of hand and be draining
for both parents and attorneys. Attorneys and
Mediators should recommend PC when children
are involved, especially if a parent is of high
conflict. Although PC involves skills that are
therapeutic, it is not therapy. A PC may assist in
issues such as planning visitation schedules and
holiday planning; promoting positive exchanges
between the parents; establishing daily routines
in the two homes; solving daycare/babysitting
issues; providing transportation and exchange
plans; planning for medical care; determining
psychological counseling or testing; aiding with
extra-curricular activities, education, tutoring
and discipline strategies; and problem-solving
related to payment issues and conflicts.
