RG22-37. Heather Dugan on Divorce & Kids

Raising our gifted children with Sara Troy and her guest Heather Dugan, on air from September 6th

“Children can move forward, and parents must be good role models for their kids. This can turn what could be a devastating experience into an opportunity for growth and a fulfilling future. Use your strength of honesty with your teenagers. Being honest with them about the situation helps to normalize what is happening and encourages them to be honest with you. Provide plenty of opportunities for them to express themselves and to talk,” believes Dugan, a resilient single mom of three. Heather’s devastating isolation following multiple family deaths and a lengthy divorce sparked a personal quest: to solve her own loneliness. She is the founder of Cabernet Coaches®, social access and self-betterment group for women.
