Playful Family Reunion

Separating Without Alignment or 3rd Party Drama – Putting Your Family and Friends in Check

I recently saw a social media message one parent sent to their closest family and friends about their ex-spouse which was very encouraging that I wanted to share.  It read as follows:

“Dear Family and Friends,

As you may know (Ex) and I recently separated.  We decided it was for the best, and hope you support us in that decision.  Even though we separated, (Ex) is still a really great person, and (father/mother) to (Child) so please do not bash on (Ex).  It just didn’t work for us. (Ex) and I don’t want anyone to take sides, or blame the other person.  We certainly don’t want anyone to choose me over (Ex), or vice-versa.  We are still the parents of (Child) and need to work with one another to co-parent.  Thank you all for understanding.”
