Don’t Stew – Ask Sue Parenting Q & A
One thing you CAN do is to remember that your attitude about the situation is the one thing that’s completely in your control.
These are the issues that come up most frequently for co-parents and how to manage them.
Talking badly about the other parent.
When you put down their other parent, your children are likely to interpret it as a put-down of part of them. When both parents are guilty of this behaviour, it can create a sense of unworthiness and low self-esteem. It makes them question how much they can trust you and your opinions ― or trust themselves. When you have a problem with your ex, take it directly to them, and not to or through the children. Don’t join in with the ‘slagging off’ of each other – ask yourself what you want your children to remember about your divorce 2,3 4 or 10 years from now. Put RESPECT at the centre of your attitude and adopt a business like attitude to dealing with your Ex – NOT easy but important !
