It has been such a stressful year; the Covid-19 virus has caused overwhelming anxiety and uncertainty not only for adults but kids, too.
I think it’s fair to say that we are all hoping the vaccine brings some level of “normalcy” to our lives and makes parenting a bit easier, as well. It hasn’t been easy saying no to my teenagers when they want to see friends, and remote learning has been a nightmare! I could go on for days…and days.
But while I’m beyond thrilled to get my kiddos vaccinated what about the thousands of people who don’t believe in vaccinating their kids? What happens when you are CO-PARENTING with an ex that is vehemently against vaccines and you are PRO?
What do you do then?
Can you take legal action?
We find ourselves faced with a totally new situation with this Covid-19 vaccine that can make co-parenting even more difficult!
This is why I have the best of the best on the show today to help answer all your tough questions and more!
