The Most Tragic Loss of All, That of a Child

Gary Direnfeld

I want to speak to those who have lost a child. That child could be of any age. The child could be pre-born. The loss could even be of fertility. These are losses without resolution. A grief without end. Despite the when, why or age, the loss is not just of the child when it happened.

Ten Tips for Doing a Party Sober

Living Sober

Some Things Just Suck To Do….

Gary Direnfeld

It’s interesting. The fact that I don’t actually enjoy my cardiac rehab excercise seems to upset some people, including my coach at the program. Several are looking for solutions assuming this is a problem. It’s not a problem for me. It doesn’t get in the way of what I have to do. It does make me wonder though about people’s belief systems.

When The Child is Coached to Badmouth Their Parent

Gary Direnfeld

The child entered my office and barely could contain themself. Quickly they told me about their preference of who to live with, given their parents separation. The child went on to explain how the preferred parent was better than the other. Once told, the child settled. I thanked the child and complemented on being able to share their information. Given the abundance of information I asked if either parent helped them remember all the points they shared.
