Ask Dr. Julie Hanks Podcast: How To Deal With Divorced Parents?

In this episode, Dr. Julie Hanks coaches Tori and addresses the question, “How to deal with divorced parents?” Divorce changes the family dynamic and can put strain on family relationships, particularly when the divorced parents do not want to engage with each other. Evan as adult children, having to hold separate birthday parties, holidays, and other family events can be tiring and cause individuals to feel like they have to pick and choose.

During this episode, Dr. Hanks discusses the importance of grieving the family you once had, and communicating boundaries with parents and other family members about what you will discuss, who you will visit, and what you will be a part of moving forward.
