Wow. Co-parenting is so tough! How do these people stay such great friends after a divorce? It’s something I’ve only dreamed of having and I must say it’s taken it’s toll on my children. Unfortunately my ex never quite figured out how to be divorced. He even went so far as to tell my children and his extended family that they weren’t allowed to speak my name in his home. Really? We’ve now been divorced 6 full years, still have a 15 yr old that spends time with both of us and I have not had ANY communication with my ex in over a year. Not email, not text, nothing. I tried really hard the first few years to encourage healing and try to be cooperative but it was just not to happen. Now I just do my best to love and support my son the best way I know how. I know it’s hard for him and we’ve talked about it. He gets it. Kids are so much smarter than we give them credit for.
