Advice for Single Parents: Be Nice to Your Ex
Single dad who lives out of state, two hours away from my mini-me. While the last few years have been tough, my son's mother and I do the best we can to make my little guy's life as pleasant as possible.
And that's what it's all about, him!
While her and I have had our ups and downs, we go out of our way to get along. I remember a time where all we did was argue. Why? How were we helping him? We weren't! Time wasted fighting over nothingness. I can't even remember what the argument was about.
So listen, and I'm not trying to preach, but if you and your ex are constantly at war, think about the little one. How does the youngin benefit from that?
When you spend most of your time battling over nothing, you end up missing out on great conversations, like this one!
