Diane & Rick take a week off to spend time with their families, so today’s episode is featuring a new podcast created by a Co-Parent Dilemmas listener! Jack, the host, speaks poignantly about what he’s learned as an alienated dad and how he maintains a strong bond with his children, despite the mountain of obstacles his co-parent puts in their way. Even though it’s releasing on Mother’s Day, a parent is a parent, no matter the label. So, this is a tribute to all who nurture their children well, regardless of gender.
