Q. My spouse emotionally flip flops with me all the time. My concern is after they start reconnecting with the kids, will they emotionally flip flop with them too?

A. Oh yeah. Time with the kids reminds them that they are doing the opposite of what they should be doing in life. So they will be great with the kids one time, grumpy the next time, nice the next time, and irritating the next. It is a rapid roller-coaster because emotions are running the show. Just be there for your kids, remain steady and consistent with your daily routines, discipline, love, and affection. They will need that from you during this time.
