But give me a few minutes and I could change that in a hug or similar act, when all that bull kaka they were exposed to disintegrats in a moment. Yes, denial usually does run deep but it is your children whom suffer in the end. Reading your Article solidified what I originally thought and while Im no perfect Parent, the level of hate that has been instilled by her in my opinion, still impacts our now 23 year old daughter to the point where she is now having her own relationship issues when connection and socializing with others, needless to say our relationship, well we dont have a Father Daughter relationship.
My 24 year old son stays in touch with me now but my daughter is the one who Im most worried about, we almost lost her to a suicide attempt this summer. I thought the good that was to come from episode was we my daughter and I could then start having a better relationship as we were calling one another while she was hospitalized and later in therapy and I offered her to come stay with me and my New wife once she was released from therapy BUT something went terribly wrong and my daughter once again decided to shut me out once she was released?
I later had a conversation with my Son and told him I think your Mom told your sister I had something to do with her not being released from therapy the first time and he just listened, not once trying to defend his Mom or tell me no Mom didnt or wouldnt do such a thing Dad, its all on my sister??? I honestly wish I lived closer and could make frequent visits but I dont and I feel really helpless most of the time. Thank you for reading the post, and am sorry to hear how difficult things have been. Unfortunately, to your point at the end of your comment, geographic distance is another significant factor parents need to consider.
I am an adult child of divorced parents. I am never married with no kids. My parents had a very acrimonious divorce and to this day they hate one another. They sold our childhood home and both of them have moved far away. I do not follow them wherever they go and I am not close with them. Your new wife and you live far away. As Ben Stitch remarks, distance is something to consider. You and your wife divorce. Basically, your family breaks up. Then you move 3 hours away and marry another woman. Then your children keep you at arms length. Is it their imagination, or something else? My ex-wife gave me 3 hours notice before leaving to live with her mother, brother and sister 4 hours away.

This is reminding me of my last drop of child to mother. Earlier I was doing it through her friend but for some reason I had to give the child directly to her mum. I was thinking after years she has become more reasonable. I was very wrong. Emmediately she saw the child she raised a storm how bad and unkempt the child hair was.
We had just come from a child recreation faculty. So I just stood there not sure how to help the 7 year old girl being shouted at by her mother. This reminds me why I really hate that woman. For many times I have asked myself whether doing child exchange through her friend was not excessive on my part.
I now affirm that it is not. The evil mother should be handled as she is. I will restrict her contact to me even more. If the child comes from about half of the parent, how can you love your child when at the same time hating their parent? This would seem to be an obvious contradiction. You cannot have it both ways. You choose to love or to hate. Perhaps this begins to explain the damage divorce does to children and how hating your ex, regardless of how you follow made up good co-parenting rules, is an exercise in selfish abuse of your children and ultimately yourself.
We hear the spirit of what you are talking about from children of divorce, particularly when reflecting back as an adult. Provocative, and important idea for folks to think about — thanks so much for reading and contributing, James! I take your point too James. And have heard it ad infinitum from my parents.

It is a perception children have. Did I do something wrong? Am I inherently bad? The fact that the parents hate one another — well, if the other parent is part of the child. I remember other relatives — grandparents, aunts and uncles — who made me feel loved and accepted. Smartly, they realized the parental conflict was not a reflection on the child and made a certain point of seeing me as a whole acceptable person, regardless of how my parents felt about themselves or one another.

I really need advice. My ex and I have been divorced for 4 years and separated for 6 years. He wanted me to meet his fiance last weekend and I refused because I was afraid of what I would say. I do feel bad about it and things really got ugly. I supposed the real question is how your kids are responding? I would encourage you to focus more on the impact on your children, and not so much his intentions and your feelings about what feels like hypocrisy for you. If getting re-married is helping him to better function as a parent I say good!
Take advantage of this moment to help your children have a better childhood! Remember, the number one factor that leads to better or worse outcomes for children, bar none, is their exposure to conflict between their parents. Feel free to hate your co-parent, but radically accept that he is their father and if he is trying to be cooperative and more involved now, despite his difficulty doing so in the past, it is only the now and the future that you can influence.
Put your love for your kids above your disdain for him. Right before bed, he received an email from his ex saying she is moving the kids miles away out of state. You can imagine his feelings of loss before trying to go to sleep tonight. He was the SAHM dad before they divorced. I hope it counts for something someday. Kudos to your husband for sticking with the co-parenting best practices despite the terrible circumstances you describe. One day the children will be adults, and may have a very different perspective.
In the meantime, I wonder if consulting an attorney on this issue of relocation might be helpful for your husband, if only to learn his options and rights in your state. Wishing both of you all the best!

My spouse and i still can not quite believe that I could become one of thse studying the important guidelines foud on your website. My family and I are sincerely thankful for the generosity and for giving me the chance to pursue this chosen profession path.
Thanks for the iimportant information I obtained from your web-site. All of the items that you mention in that list are ways in which parents fail to love their children. And of course, no one loves perfectly. They loved each other imperfectly. Likewise, all parents love their own children imperfectly. If you lied once, does that make you a liar? Just not a perfectly honest person.

So the message of this article is ultimately: The ONLY message is for parents is to perfect their love for one another. Regardless of their marital or psychological states. The child will be a reflection of that love and that love only. Sorry if this seems unfairly critical; I realize that you are trying to do good.
It just seems more like a post-mortem study of a family. Which is chillingly sad. Thanks for taking the time to share your perspective, Tim. For sure, this post is exaggerated and the binary nature of the description is purposeful. Research about the devastating impact of parental conflict on the developing brain is clear — the stress of ongoing intense parental conflict for children is toxic. A must-read for any divorced parent, no matter how amicable your relationship is.
