Manage episode 358822350 series 2030630
Sharing child custody with an ex can be an exercise in trust, patience, and compromise. But what happens when that ex decides to remarry and now your kids have a stepdad who has pled guilty to two felony charges of sexual exploitation of a minor? How can you ensure their safety when they're around their pedophile stepdad, and how do you explain what's going on without traumatizing them? We'll try to find answers to these questions and more here on Feedback Friday!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
- How do you protect your kids from their pedophile stepfather and explain the situation without traumatizing them? [Once again, clinical psychologist Dr. Erin Margolis saves the day!]
- Your wife's Chinese family is immersed in CCP propaganda, despite living in the US for over 40 years. Now that your father-in-law has passed, your wife wants her mother to move in — but you're concerned about her influence on your children and the risk of being monitored by the CCP for listening to its media. What should you do?
- You and your partner moved in together before really knowing each other's darker sides. Although you've turned your own life around, your partner is struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues and exhibits emotionally destructive behavior. You plan to move out and find a new place to live with a friend, but how do you delicately navigate the situation?
- You're 28 years old, working for your 73-year-old father in the family business. You want to modernize the company's procedures and processes, but your father resists change and is beginning to display signs of cognitive decline. Can you find a way to take charge of the business while still showing your father you value his advice?
- You've been running your own business as a side project for years, but you're ready to bring it to the forefront. Even though it's been demonstrated time and again that you know your stuff, imposter syndrome and a beginner's mindset keep you from being self-confident enough to charge clients an expert rate. How do you make the transition?
