Divorce is a tough situation, especially if you have kids. It’s difficult to be away from them, whether it’s for a small or large amount of time. Since non-custodial parents spend less time with their children, they have fewer opportunities to get to know what makes them tick. This can be extremely frustrating for that parent. Today on Stepfamily Central, Rachelle talks to Joel Schwartzberg, a father of three, and an award winning humorist and essayist, about being a non-custodial parent, and how to make the most of the time you do have with your children. Joel’s work has appeared in Newsweek, the New York Times Magazine, New Jersey Monthly, the NY Post, Stepmom Magazine among many other publications. His book, “THE 40-YEAR-OLD VERSION: HUMOIRS OF A DIVORCED DAD” can be found on Amazon.com where it’s in paperback or kindle, and has just been turned into an audio book as well.
