Co-parenting 🤔

Now for one I am a daughter of a single parent I now am the mother of a beautiful set of twins. I have seen a lot of different family dynamics over the course of my 32 years on this planet. I’ve seen healthy happy marriages, I’ve seen bitter unhappy broken homes and anywhere in between. Now that I’m a mom I see the inside of parenting so clearly but there’s something in particular that sort of strikes a nerve with me! Where do you draw the line of doing for your child and doing for your ex?

Now I know for some this a tricky and some what of a touchy subject especially from the males perspective. Where do you draw the line? I mean should gifts be exchanged between the parents (Birthdays, Mother’s/Father’s Day etc…)? Also should holidays be shared as if a home isn’t divided? If so what is the protocol if these parents now have significant others? What sort of guidelines or boundaries should be set? What expectations should the parents set for their children? Without causing detrimental harm to their children’s support system.

I would really like to know what you think???

And always remember!

  1. Twinning ain’t easy. I’m a twin mom too and it puts crazy stress on any relationship.

    If a marriage or relationship doesn’t work, people have to work hard to forge a new kind of relationship.

    I think the three most important pieces to success raising children with an ex is communication, respect and honesty.
