Am I too old to start over?  Or to be happy?  It's a tough question to ask yourself when you have been in a relationship or marriage for a long time.  Once you hit a certain age, you often ask yourself, am I too old to do this?

This week in The Divorced Dad Diaries, we try to figure out if there's such a thing as too old to start a new life and be happy!

In this episode of The Divorced Dad Diaries, we talk about narcissists and what it means… It seems that we talk about it more and more these days.  Let's talk about how it is used and misused at times. I asked myself that question…. Am I a narcissist?

In this episode, I talk about what it is like the Day After you have the talk, and decide to move forward with your separation or divorce.  It is a scary moment, and a lot of unknown, but also a chance for a new beginning.

This year, I had a pretty quiet Father's Day.  But at the same time, it was one of the best one I had.  Being a parent is not easy, but sometimes, you need that little boost to make you feel better.

That is what I'll be sharing with you this week...  And I hope it makes you think and inspire you a little bit...  All I can say is hang in there, you're doing a great job! :)

This week, I have the pleasure of having Bruce Mclaughlin, author of the book He said, She S.A.I.D., and then he went to jail.  We talk about his incredible story, his book, and also talk about what divorce and custody battle can do to a family.

Part memoir, part thriller, and part horror story, He Said, She S.A.I.D., retells the story of one man’s arrest, trial, conviction, escape attempt, and 4-year incarceration before he was a...

This week, I talked about Marriage Counselling and Therapy.  Should we go through it, and is it really worth it?  Could it save my marriage (and avoid a divorce)? Or is it just a wishful thinking?

I've asked around and got some really interesting feedback on all this...  And what about you, what do you think? :)

This week, I talk about relapse.  Everything might look better, go better, all seemed aligned, but there's always a risk for a relapse.  How can you deal with it and get back on your feet?

Let's try to settle this once and for all...  Is that true that Dads just want to have fun? :)

In this episode, I decided to talk about the myth or reality that dads just want to have fun.  We're never serious, or never the serious parent in a relationship.  Is that true?  And how so?  Can we also be a strict that nowadays?  Why not both?

Feel free to share your thoughts on this!

It is this time of year!  Holidays are almost here, and as much as it was never easy to plan when married, with family and friends, it can be even more challenging when you're divorced.

We talk about planning, which is key to successful holidays, our first Christmas alone, and also out with the old and in with the new traditions with the kids!

It's not something easy, but we can make it fun and start something new all tog...

In addition to her group for stepmoms, Tracy hosts a Facebook community for divorced dads called "One for the Dads" to create a safe, private space on social media for asking questions and sharing challenges. She recently asked the group what they were having the most trouble with in their parenting and they said they wanted to know ...
