Getting a divorce calls requires splitting community property – this means taking all of the community property you and your spouse own and dividing it up accordingly.

What TexProtects Says TexProtects, an organization in Texas focused on the protection of children, believes that any verbal or physical punishments that may cause a child trauma has no place in disciplining a child. Contrary to what some people may think, any harmful verbal or physical disciplinary action is done on a child does more harm than good. A continuously growing body of knowledge backs this up. Doing anything that may cause your childhood trauma when disciplining them will only affect them negatively as they continue to grow. Talk to Your Children The best way to discipline your children is to talk to them about what is wrong and what is right. You may think that they might not understand you because they are still children, but they will if you really just try to talk to them about it. Hurting your child because they did something wrong won’t make much sense to them compared to reprimanding your child by telling them what they did wrong and why it was wrong. Make them know that behavior like that won’t be tolerated and will merit punishment. Be Firm, But Reasonable When it comes to punishments, make sure that what they get is proportionate to what they did. Of course, any verbal or physically harmful consequences are out of […]
