No one is above the law, including your Massachusetts boss. The National Labor Relations Act and a variety of statutes overseen by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission protect employees from hostile work environments, discrimination and unfair labor practices. There are also Massachusetts and local regulations that employers must follow.
Spouses going through a Massachusetts divorce usually worry about how assets such as a house, car, or retirement accounts will be divided when the divorce is final. With information and technology becoming increasingly intertwined in evolving societal norms, however, intellectual property is equally becoming an important category of assets owned by a married couple. Intellectual property includes things such as copyrights, trademarks, and patents.
Jealousy is one of the most powerful emotions we can feel in a Massachusetts relationship and, if we're not careful, it can rage completely out of control and do irreparable harm. The problem is, that feeling of jealousy and possessiveness is hard-wired into our survival instinct and the fear of losing our mate can trigger that.
Work has a way of, well, getting in the way. In any Massachusetts relationship, there are going to be nights, weekends, and even holidays, where one Massachusetts parent is forced to stay late at the office or spend the day behind the warm glow of a computer or phone screen. Recitals will be missed, dinner reservations will have to be canceled, family plans will have to be rearranged. These incidents, when isolated and spaced far apart, rarely have any long-term impact on a relationship and, after a few words and a mea culpa or two, tend to fade away.
Massachusetts grandparents enjoy a pretty solid reputation and for good reason. They're praised in numerous studies for their positive influence on their grandchildren's development and often provide crucial, and cost-effective/free childcare for struggling parents. So it's generally accepted that families benefit when kids live close to their grandparents.
Massachusetts kids are more primed for receiving than giving as the year wears down. They're simply too hyped about Christmas and Hanukkah presents. Still, winter holidays tend to stress the virtue of giving, which require emotional intelligence-the ability to recognize someone else's emotions while managing one's own. That means the holiday season is the perfect time for parents to lean into lessons that help kids amp up their emotional intelligence, and have fun doing it.
Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) is the unhealthy coalition between anarcissistic parent and his or her children against the targeted, non-narcissistic, non-abusive parent. The innocent or targeted parent receives hostility and rejection from his or her children in this system. The psychological health of the children is used as arsenal in the narcissist's twisted world.
For many Massachusetts dads, buried deep beneath the joys and day-to-day responsibilities of being a parent is the fear of losing their family's respect. No one wants to feel disappointment and resentment emanating from a child or spouse, or to feel ignored or dismissed by one's own family. A mild disrespectful phase is common when kids are in their teens, sure, but even young children can lose respect for a parent.
It's no secret that one of the biggest challenges a parent faces after a Massachusetts divorce is staying in good communication with your children. Obviously all parents struggle with communication issues as their children grow, but children who have had their lives dramatically altered by separation or divorce need even more attention - and diligent observation by their parents.
For any parent going through a Massachusetts divorce or separation, it's not hard to get caught up in various dramas encountered throughout this transition. Moving homes, splitting assets, determining a parenting agreement, and coping with emotions is exhausting. While it might feel at times like you and your co-parent cannot agree on anything, there is at least one thing you must agree on: to keep your children and their well-being at the forefront of any decisions you make or actions you take during this time.
It doesn't take some Massachusetts children very long to realize the advantages of playing parents against each other to get what they want. After a few years of being on this earth, children start to realize that just because dad said no doesn't mean that mom will say no or vice versa.
