Today, we talk with Drew about something not fitness or diet related. We talk about parenting after divorce.

This is a great topic as divorce rates are skyrocketing and broken families seem to be the norm. Drew tells us how he has dealt with the challenge of parenting after divorce. He talks about the difficult trials he has faced, and how he has overcome them. Along with this, he talks about how the current relationship he has with his former wife has a huge impact on his children. Parenting is difficult as it is, and adding divorce on top of it can be damaging to the whole family.
