Co-Parenting and Your Children’s Feelings

This article provides wise guidance addressing how you interact with your children on the topic of your ex during and after your divorce.  The starting point is to never speak ill of the child’s other parent (your ex), but that’s just the starting point.  This article provides a great check on whether you are interacting with your children in their best interests or whether you are projecting your concerns or upset feelings onto them.  Generally I suggest that questions are answered clearly without biased commentary and only to the extent asked so as to not travel down an uninvited path.  This writer takes this analysis further in checking in with your own body’s internal reaction for a check on whether you are dealing with your feelings or your child’s.  This is another first step in prioritizing and acting truly in your children’s best interest.
