Be Jesus: A Difficult Ex-Spouse 3

June 17, 2020

Sometimes, you just gotta’ scream!

If you’re co-parenting a child with someone who lives in a different home it's critical that you speak respectfully about that parent in front of your kids. Open anger, bitterness, and critical remarks just put the kids in the middle. What do you do, though, with all the frustrating feelings you’ve got cooped up inside? Well, vent in private. Find a trusted friend, support group, or a counselor to process it with you. Here’s the bottom line: Find a good outlet, but never in front of the kids.
