The cost of "being right"

Too often parents become engulfed in the need to be "right," to prove the other parent is a "liar," or to vindicate past wrongs on the public record.  Sometimes being "right" is not worth the cost to the children.  Divorce doesn't harm children -- conflict does. So, while there are many attorneys who are willing to take your money to prove for the public record that you are "right" about the fact that your ex-spouse was fifteen minutes late for the last three weeks, before picking up the phone to start that battle, consider just letting it go.
