FamilyLife Blended® Minute
Do Everything You Can
When two elephants fight, it's the grass that suffers.
About the Guest
Kids of divorce have a few bumps and bruises but they can fare reasonably well long term if their parents put aside their differences and cooperate as co-parents. The alternative is for parents to argue and fight. The more they do the more wounded their kids become. Co-Parenting is not about you. It's about what is best for your kids. For you to manage it well you may have to keep forgiving and set aside what you think is fair for you. For their sake you can do this. You have to do this.
