  1. S4.E33. Should I Send the Kids to a Toxic Household? Diane Dierks & Rick Voyles 42:33

Diane & Rick respond to a listener’s question about withholding parenting time due to a history of domestic violence and continued toxicity in their other home. What are the steps to determine safety issues? How do parents balance protecting children with the risk of being accused of parental alienation? The co-hosts break it down.
