Part of my role at work is to be a part of court-ordered Supervised Visitation. While, I enjoy the work I do, this part of my job is maddening. It's painful and uncomfortable. It's not really any fun for anyone involved because no matter what, one party is unhappy. I find it very challenging because my role is to be neutral. My role is to look out for the child and both parties always seem quiet desperate to show me that THEY are in the best interst of what will happen with the child. Some days, like today, working with both parties just makes my head want to pop right off.
