In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Beth Behrendt, a divorced mother to three boys who has successfully followed a nesting custody arrangment with her ex for six years about how the arrangement has helped to make her restructured family stronger than ever!

When parents are facing separation and/or divorce, they often assume that establishing two separate households that their children will move between is a pre-ordained conclusion.  But what if that isn't the case?  What if your children's lives could continue almost without change, and the parents could be the ones to make the move?  That is "birdnesting" and for guest, Beth Behrendt and her family, the arrangment has been the key to their success as a new type of family following the divorce six years ago!  Amazingly, Beth's three boys have never left their family home as Beth and her ex have moved in and out of the home to parent them.  Along the way, Beth has discovered that there are several upsides beyond the lack of disruption to her children's lives that come from the nesting arrangment that make it even more appealing.  She shares all of these upsides, and some of the downsides to be aware of, in this eye-opening episode!

More about this week's Special Guest:  Beth Behrendt is a freelance writer and mom to three boys and has been nesting with her ex for almost six years. Since the couple first separated, their sons have never left the family home -- Bill and Beth take turns moving in and out to parent them. Nesting has made them a stronger, happier family than ever before.

On this episode Susan Guthrie, Esq. speaks with Coach, Podcast Host and the Author of "Soar," Pamela Savino, on a topic perfectly timed for the tough times that can occur in divorce and on a broader scope, are occuring in the world at large as COVID, societal unrest and financial difficulties create stress and strain in our lives every day.  Pam's decision to move through the tough times in her divorce by stepping into her own authentic life will inspire you and help you as you face your own challenging times!

A few years back, Pam Savino and her husband decided to divorce.  As she shares in her wonderful book, Soar, there was nothing "bad" happening, but the relationship was not working for either of them.  The news left friends and family shocked as they were that picture postcard perfect family who "had it all" but they knew that it was the right choice for them.  That is not to say that the divorce was not full of tough times, there were plenty, and Pam shares several stories that may sound very familiar to you such as telling the kids, dealing with the 'til death do us part issue and keeping the divorce a secret from everyone until the time was right.  Pam's lessons on leaving behind the life that society and other people tell you is right, and stepping into your own authentic self, perhaps for the very first time, is the true path through the hard times ahead to a a happier and more fulfilled life!

Some highlights from this episode:

  • Find out how Pam, and not her attorney, "drove the bus" in the divorce process and how Pam found the strength to make those "big decisions." (7:35)
  • What does "living authentially" mean for Pam and why does she think it is the key to getting through those tough moments in divorce and in life?  (9:17)
  • Where does the shift from inauthentic to authentic living happen?  (11:50)
  • Why does Pam say that in the challenging moments that is when we find our greatness? (15:45)
  • Why were the first 15 seconds of telling the kids about the divorce the most important? (20:20)
  • What is a "soul contract" and how did it help Pam to explain the divorce to her daughter? (27:00)
  • The questions to ask yourself to "reframe" your tough moments: (35:40)

          What am I meant to learn from this?

          How can I allow this experience to become a better person?

          Instead of choosing hate or anger, how can I choose compassion?

There are just so many moments in our life where change, difficulty and adversity make us stronger and help us to define what is truly authentic for our own lives so take a listen today and let Pam help you to find your way to your AUTHENTIC LIFE!

More About This Week's GuestPamela Savino is pursuing her spiritual calling with an unparalleled fervor. She relentlessly helps others find their voice, speak their truth, and live authentically via several modalities.  She is the founder of Live Authentically, a life-coaching business, author of SOAR, and she recently started a podcast called the Live Authentically show, whose guests include other people who are also committed to playing a role in raising collective consciousness and helping people discover the essence of who they are. She is also an advocate for plant-based eating and partners with others to spread the plant-based message internationally.

Her wish for everyone in this world is that we all live deeply fulfilling and authentic lives. Achieving this goal often requires radical change, and she is vowing to embody, embrace and model this change to inspire others to find their own voice and leave this world a better place than we found it.

What if we told you that you could reunify with your alienated child in just FOUR DAYS?!  Sounds too good to be true doesn't it?  The good news is that in this episode, Susan Guthrie, Esq. speaks with Dorcy Pruter, the Founder of the Conscious Co-Parenting Institute, who has a 100% success rate in recovering children in their 4-day workshop!  

Parental alienation is one of the most heartbreaking and intractible issues that can arise in a family and historically, courts, attorneys and therapists have struggled to change the paradigm.  Even when an alienated parent files all the motions and gets all the forensic reports, everything takes so long that it often seems pointless.  That is where Dorcy and her coaches and professionals come in.  They have different programs that are all successful in bringing families back together and allowing targeted parents to reunify with their children - even after years of separation.  This episode is the doorway to hope and a path to regaining their children for so many parents and children who have been out there suffering for years!

Some Highlights from this Episode:

What is "parental alienation" and why do Susan and Dorcy put "air quotes" around the term?

Discover how alienation is actually a form of both child abuse and intimite partner abuse.

Hear why some families actually AGREE in mediation to enter into the Conscious Co-Parenting Reunification workshop.

Why do you need a protective custody order to get the process started and how do you do that?

What needs to happen after the first 4-day workshop to insure that the kids stay recovered?

How do you get reluctant children to participate?

AND MUCH, MUCH, MORE so don't miss this episode!

More about this week's guest, DORCY PRUTER:  The Founder and CEO of Conscious Co-Parenting Institute a Dorcy Inc. Company. Through re-unification coaching and co-parent education, Dorcy provides strategies and solutions for parents and children to reconnect or stay connected during and after a high conflict divorce.  Dorcy has extensive experience in all aspects of Parental Alienation from her own personal experience as a child, as a divorced conscious co-parent of two beautiful daughters, and through relationships where her significant other was being alienated from his child.

Dorcy has a Coaching Certification and a Certification in Mediation and High Conflict Resolution, and is Certified to teach several different parenting curriculum including training and working with Jayne Major Ph.D. After teaching for several years, Dorcy has combined some of the best of the training and parenting classes and has written a more powerful new curriculum focused on the challenges facing parents who are struggling through parental alienation and high conflict divorce. Dorcy works with most of the industry leaders on solving the crisis of pathogenic parenting, otherwise known as “parental alienation” that plagues our families. These methodologies are counterintuitive and Dorcy’s extensive work in helping people build better relationships has evolved into the Conscious Co-Parenting Institute
