    Words of Wisdom for Divorcing Parents

    Years ago, Minnesota Judge Michael Haas gave some blunt advice to divorcing parents in his courtroom:

    “Your children have come into this world because of the two of you. Perhaps you two made lousy choices as to whom you decided to be the other parent. If so, that is your problem and your fault. No matter what you think of the other party — or what your family thinks of the other party — these children are one half of each of you.

    “Remember that — because every time you tell your child what an `idiot’ his father is, or what a `fool’ his mother is, or how bad the absent parent is, or what terrible things that person has done, you are telling the child that half of him is bad.

    “That is an unforgivable thing to do to a child. That is not love. That is possession. If you do that to your children, you will destroy them as surely as if you had cut them into pieces, because that is what you are doing to their emotions.”

    Judge Haas retired in December 2002 after 26 years of service as a Judge in Cass County, Minnesota. Judge Haas’ words have been quoted in an Ann Landers article, appellate opinions and countless attorney webpages, blogs, websites, and law journals. Yet this simple message remains sage advice for parents before, during, and after the divorce process.

    Divorcing parents need to remember that their actions and words deeply affect the little people in their lives. Likewise, divorce attorneys need to remember that they are dealing with people’s lives and children and that their actions can last longer than the term of representation.

    • Linda

      Cheryl, great post! Hope Bristol reads it and understands that it applies to her for the sake of Tripp.

    • otlset

      Thanks for sticking to the topic Cheryl and happy belated Independence Day to you and Linda!

  • Happy 4th of July to the Palin family. Loved your show and will be watching next week.

  • Patriot

    Shouldn’t all of you be wearing your flag shirts and listening to Lee Greenwood about now?

    • liberty

      I don’t want to keep repeating myself but I will YOUR FATHER SATAN IS CALLING YOUR NAME HE IS SAYING WELL DONE MY SON.

      • liberty

        That was in reply to PATRIOT whose father is SATAN who is so proud of him or it I don’t know which.

      • Patriot

        Liberty there is no need to keep telling me Satan is calling me and is proud of me. He is sitting right beside me eating a bowl of ice cream and watching the golden girls.

        • liberty

          SO PATRIOT you finally went home to your father I am so happy for you. but you are lying though ice cream would melt there but that’s okay because your home where lying is the golden rule.

          • Patriot

            You know liberty hell’s not so bad. There’s free wifi, the sushi is decent. But there’s only one tv channel and the only thing they play is “Life’s a Tripp”. So yeah it kinda sucks but I don’t visit too often…daddy issues .

        • Jellybean

          I hear for severe punishment the devil plays soundbytes of $aint $arah over the loud speaker.

          • Patriot

            Thats harsh even for hell JB 🙂

    • LMA

      I think all Bristol’s Christian conservative fans should pray for “liberty.” Is nobody but me worried about the fact that he/she has a direct line to Satan?!

      • Patriot

        Lol LMA. It’s true and haven’t they figured out Satan is a republican?

        • liberty

          PATRIOT SATAN is both demoncrat and republican they are one and the same very few good people in either party. Both party’s are corrupt. We need people who will rid Washington of the corrupt politicians Sarah did that in Alaska when she was Governor she sent people from her own party to jail . She is not well liked in the repub.est. because of that. both the repubs. democrats know if she would become Pres. their little racket would be over she would be for the people and not for their little crony friends most of them would be wearing red jumpsuits. we need people like Sarah . Wake up before it is to late your fighting the wrong person.

        • liberty
          • liberty,
            Glad you posted that about Sarah Palin’s accomplishments. These liberals can’t
            stand to read about it and they do everything they can to try and destroy it, but
            they can’t. It is written and nothing can change what she was able to accomplish!!!

      • liberty

        No direct line to SATAN but who do you think is happy with the garbage that is being spewed here it certainly isn’t GOD.

        • LMA

          So you have a direct line to G-d, too? Amazing! Then why don’t you make yourself useful and throw us some winning lottery numbers?

      • otlset

        We are praying for liberty LMA, out of fear that you and your big-government control ilk continue to try to take away our liberty piece by piece and yoke ever more government control over our lives that in generations to come our country (and the entire world — God help us) will be nothing but a giant ‘hive’ of ant-like drones following the bidding of a faceless gigantic centralized government that controls what we are to do and not do from cradle to grave.

        • LMA

          Are we crushin’ on me again, otlset? *SWAK!*

        • Patriot

          What a drama queen. Will conservatives ever offer anything besides fear to the american people?

    • TeaPartyJesus

      LOL- most of these teabaggers dont know Greenwood is a Canadian.

      • Patriot

        I love it!

  • Patriot

    Bristol and Sarah’s great friend Rush Limbaugh had this to say on his radio show this week: “When women got the right to vote is when it all went downhill. Because that’s when votes started being cast with emotion and maternal instinct that government ought to reflect.” I can’t wait to see Bristol’s next blog post calling him out on this.

    • liberty

      He later said he was JOKING.

      • Patriot

        So was bill mahr. In fact he’s a professional comedian but he didn’t get a pass did he? Hypocrites.

        • section9

          So, did you give Mahr a pass when he called Governor Palin a c**t?
          Go the f**k away. Axelrod is not getting his money’s worth with you. Your clown shoes are too small.

          • Patriot

            So Bill Mahr using an expletive is worse to you than Rush’s hope that someone like Sarah Palin would never have been given a voice little long the opportunity to lead. What a stupid person you are section9. And you really think all of us here are paid to post on some silly little girls blog? You give conspiracy a bad name.

          • Patriot

            Does is drive you crazy section9 that Bill Mahr’s show had by 1.3 million viewers last weekend while Bristol’s show didn’t have enough viewers to chart. LOL!

        • liberty

          PATRIOT Rush was reacting to a caller who said teenagers should never have been given the right to vote because they were to immature. Bill Mahr gave the Obama superpac 1 MILLION $

          Why are you here as you say (“Posting on some silly little girls blog”). It’s obvious you don’t like Bristol or her mother so either you are being paid or you have a serious case of P.D.S OR MAYBE BOTH.

          • Mariah

            I have a feeling that troll is here because of both of your reasons.

        • Mariah

          Hahahahahahaha!!!!!! He didn’t get a pass? You are funny!!! He gets a pass every time he opens that mouth!!!! Oh that was funny!!!! Wow!!!!

          • GrizzlyMom

            Doesn’t take much to amuse you does it Mariah?

  • Kim

    Bristol! I love your show and watch it with my daughter who’s involved in local politics. I’m so grateful for you and your family for giving America access to your lives. You’ve bravely opened yourselves up to heartless attacks, but at least we can consider the source. There’re so many people who are tormented by their own failures so they take it out on others. Thank you for being such a good sport. We will continue to watch “Life’s A Tripp” and enjoy having a backstage pass into your world. Watching the CPAC from your perspective was such a treat because I was watching it streaming online. The way your mother interacting with the audience after the speech was electric. I support your mother and thoroughly believe she will be our next president. She is by far the most liked of all the candidates and she’s going to bring a Reagan conservatism to our country. More than that, she’s a proven reformer and you have all been thoroughly tested by the brutal media and come through better than ever. Godspeed to you and your beautiful son! (And the fine young man who appears to love both of you very much!)

      “The way your mother interacting with the audience after the speech was ELECTRIC. ”

      I imagine a lot of David Koresh’s followers felt the same way about him, lol.

      Reverend Moon? Same thing.

      • tom stewart

        And Reagan most likely had early stage Alzheimers by ’87.

  • Emma Lora

    We saw the movie The Patroit (Mel Gibson) It reminded us that so many suffered & sacrificed so much for the independence of the nation. We appreciate those who volunteered to protect our country today. Happy Birthday America from today’s patriots

    • section9

      Not to disagree to much, but The Patriot was Mel Gibson’s way of pointing out how much someone raised in Australia dislikes the British. Half of the stuff depicted by him that the British Army was said to have done (such as burning a whole community alive in a locked up church) never happened.

  • Mir

    I just wanted to say, while I have very different beliefs from you and your family on certain things in this world, I do enjoy watching your show. I think it is very ridiculous how everyone bashes you and your family about things and that they don’t realize that they need to just keep their ridiculous comments and thoughts to themselves. You are doing a great job as a mother and I do truly love watching you and Tripp weekly!

    • TeaPartyJesus

      ” I think it is very ridiculous how everyone bashes you and your family about things and that they don’t realize that they need to just keep their ridiculous comments and thoughts to themselves. ”

      You realize that the Palins, by choice, have made themselves public figures, correct? I believe that was the point behind all these reality shows they insist on participating in. That, and a fat payday. All of which leaves them open to criticism from anyone who wants to put forth an opinion.

      Havent you ever watched a reality show for the sole purpose of cringing at the craven antics of the people involved? I suspect a lot of people follow the Palin Brand ™ for precisely the same reason. Glad I could help.

  • AVA

    Evening Bristol, wondering what your take is on what your darling Rush had to say today….

  • chris

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

    Unless of course you were black before January 11, 1864 or a woman before August 26th, 1920. Or a homosexual today. That’s how logic works around here right?

    • otlset

      Real slavery, harassment and vilification of homosexuals, and brutal oppression of women exists TODAY in much of Africa. Do the world some good chris and crusade against that.

      • chris

        the point, otlset, is that it still very much takes place here in the US. more specifically, on this blog. I can point you to several articles on this blog in which the aforementioned unalienable rights we are “celebrating” today are prescribed to specific groups and not others.
        My comment wasnt a rally cry, I was merely choking on the hypocrisy of this post.

  • Jinky

    From yahoo:

    LOSER: “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” (Lifetime)

    Viewers from both sides of the political spectrum voted loud and clear on this celebreality series, which follows Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol as she moves to L.A. with her young son. The premiere drew a mere 726,000 viewers and didn’t even rank among the night’s top 100 cable programs in key demos. Not even a much-hyped confrontation with a heckler at a Hollywood bar could entice people to tune in. And the indignity continued this week, with Lifetime bumping “Tripp” to 11 PM in favor of “Dance Mom” repeats. (Ouch.)

  • Mariah

    Bristol, Happy Independance Day!!!!! Hope you had a better one than these people here!!!! I will be praying for you and your mom!!!!! Let’s not lose site of why we celebrate this day!!! Our founding fathers came here for freedoms!!! They faught against the british!!!! And created our Consititution!!!!! Thanks to them we have freedoms!!!!

  • Jason

    Wow, I love how you liberals are so compassionate and tolerant of other peoples’ opinions.

    To answer Bristol’s question: How did I spent my Independence Day? Indoors, out of the 100+ degree heat!

  • Spouse and self went to lunch at the retirement community where my stepmother lives, which is for retired military and/or their surviving spouses. My stepmother is the widow of two career military from the WWII/Korea era (when her first husband had died, and my mother had died, she married my late father). The meal was a barbecue – hot dogs, hamburgers, barbecued chicken, potato salad, corn pudding, soft drinks or beer, strawberry shortcake or ice cream. The plan was to hold it outside picnic-style, but it was so hot that they had it in the regular dining hall. In the evening we watched the “America’s Birthday Party” from the Capitol lawn, with Tom Bergeron as host this year – as you would expect, he did an excellent job. The music was great, and the fireworks very nice. God bless America, land that I love, stand beside her and guide her through the night with the light from above.

  • Bristol, I saw a photo of you and Gino at what looked like a parade with the rest of your family. It was on Facebook. Was that taken yesterday on the 4th? I think there was one of Piper who must have been in the parade.

    • Jellybean


  • Sharon

    I celebrated with my parents and brother! I am so blessed to still have my parents! God Bless America!!!

  • Joanne Mayo

    Bristol, your quote from the Declaration of Independence brings it all down as to why we celebrate. I think we need a Declaration of Independence II with the same message sent to the present White House and Congress, cause they seem to forget why we had the first one. Then we can celebrate again in November, cause they’ll be gone (I pray).

    • Jellybean

      Ya, like god doesn’t have better things to do. Cripes!

  • Donna Stewart

    Spent day with family in yearly 4th celebration which includes: a birthday party, anniversay wishes, and 4th celebration with cookout and fireworks! Fun times as well as patriotic memories of past, present, and tradition. Flying the American Flag is always an honor and privilege for our family. We will not forget what it stands for and all sacrifices made for it to fly in its’ glory at a great price. God bless America.

  • David Dempsey

    On Nov. 6, 2012 the American People must show Washington that We still Believe in The Declaration Of Independence, the US Constitution, the Bill Of Rights, the Pledge Of Allegiance, and Our National Anthem — even though – Evidently – they Do Not Believe in them. — Tom Stewart and Jellybean are really ” Creepy ” !!!

    • Patriot

      Conservatives are the most ignorant people on earth.

  • Joanne Mayo

    My husband officially retires tomorrow, and we have our little retirement nest egg lined up ready to go. But w e won’t see any of it if we allow tyranny to take over. Many of the founding fathers suffered ruin, hardships, death, loss of their homes and fortunes. All because they rose up to throw off the yoke of tyranny. We must do the same.
    Check out http://www.thenationalpatriot.com/2012/07/05/1775-or-2012-separated-by-centuries-not-by-issues/

    We need a Patrick Henry.
    We got a Sarah Palin. Throw off fundamental transformation (code for tyranny). If it’s treason, make the most of it.
    Sorry to have to use your blog to say this, but it needs to be said.

  • bellagrazi

    Amen! Hope you had a Happy 4th, Bristol! Palin Style.
