Have you ever wished your ex would fall off the planet? What if they did? In this episode, we dive into the deep waters of grief, panic, compassion and anger that bubble up when a child’s other parent dies. Author Amy Sue Nathan shares the complicated story of her ex-husband’s death, her children’s profound loss and the surprising ways her family and friends responded. She also offers advice on the practicalities and tenderness on swimming back to the surface with children, as only another single mom who has been through it can.
