I can't recommend highly enough that Dads really need to reach out for all the help they can get. Don't try to do it alone. I'm more the stoic type so asking for help is difficult for me. Divorce and custody are high-stakes games and the deck is significantly stacked against us. Books like this are extremely helpful.


I bought this amazing book that a good friend of mine Chris wrote recently. This book was an easy read and even though it is titled “Dad’s Divorce Guide”, it has really put some perspective in how I handled things and what to look forward to in the future. Reading this I was telling myself that’s you or yep definitely describes the ex. The book goes over a variety of stages in a divorce or even just a relationship. Chris has researched everything he has put into this book along with his personal experience. If you have gone through or going through a break-up of any kind, I highly recommend this book. It truly is a great “guide” and will help you through some rough times, it really opened my eyes to so many things, and I know my future will look different. Check it out on Amazon. Thank you Chris Batcheller for this amazing book! You truly wrote a masterpiece!!
