I had a great time speaking with Julia Kotziamani on her podcast.
From the episode description:
When you find yourself a single parent, it can be a really exciting time to forge a new path for you and your family.
Lots of us find ourselves questioning our long-held beliefs about love, sex, and romance, and it can be a great time to make big changes. You may want to explore different types of relationship like polyamory or other forms of non-monogamy/multi-gamy…but how do you start? and will your kids be ok?
I talk to the relationship coach and expert in all things challenging mono-normative mindsets, Roy Graff, on some of the taboos and fears single mums face when they consider opening up to the non-exclusive.
-What is non-monogamy and how can it work?
-What can you expect when you first start challenging your previous value systems?
-How do go about “coming out” to friends, family and co-parents?
-Is it safe and healthy for kids to be around?
This was such a wonderful conversation to have, and I can’t thank Roy enough for coming and sharing his wisdom. If you are in a non-monogamous dynamic, are thinking it might be something to explore, or even if you are just curious about how it might work around parenting, this one is for you.
