The Best Solution

with Ron Deal | April 29, 2020

This wife and mother was frustrated. Her husband never followed through on discipline and he treated her poorly so divorce in her mind was the best solution. I agree, things need to change, but would your absence make him a better father or stop his negativity? The way to increase your influence in his life is to stay near him; leaving decreases your influence and you have less parental power to help your kids. A healthy marriage is the best solution to your problem. Get help and don't give up.
