BE THE BEST PARENT 

FOR DIVORCED OR SEPARATED PARENTS 

If you are going through a divorce or separation please consider the  following: “Even if we can’t change a situation or circumstance, we have the ability to change  the way we view the situation.”

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
― Viktor E. FranklMan’s Search for Meaning
