The overall effect of these guides is simply that. They are helpful guides. They are not patronising parenting classes. They are all about learning the new dynamics about being a separated parent. By reading these free or cheap guides then they enable a parent to realise two things: firstly that they can trust their instincts about when they feel they are doing the right things. Secondly these guides enable a parent to realise when they are not being met half way or fairly by the other parent. It is at that point that you should get detailed legal advice and find a way to resolve differences such as in Mediation or in Collaborative Family Law
