      The truth about divorce involving children. I know at least one woman who should read this and take a good look in the mirror and feel horrible for the things she's done. Im so happy that I have a healthy relationship with my ex, hopefully all six of my children will learn from me, in case they are ever faces with divorce.

      Would be nice if divorcing parents read and abided by this. I have step children whose mother endlessly hurts her children knowingly by doing these exact things.

    • Joy Smit

      So true, just to bad that there are so many divorced parents their family members out there that rather play games due to their anger hatred, than to show their kids unselfish ways. It does hurt the kids may even cause life long divisions between a parent and his children that can never be repaired...and then in the end, the selfish parent feels that they won, cause they have their kids next to them but in reality, it is the kids that lost hurt deeply inside cause they no longer have a great relationship with BOTH their parents... As they deeply inside desire. It's just a shame!

      Even if your ex is a deserving #DEADBEAT, don't hurt your kids......Minnesota Judge Has 200 Blunt Words  for Divorcing Parents By Judge Michael Haas 2001....... “Your children have come into this world because of the two of you. Perhaps you two made lousy choices as to whom you decided to be the other parent. If so, that is your problem and your fault. No matter what you think of the other party—or what your family thinks of the other party—these children are one-half of each of you. Remember that, because every time you tell your child what an “idiot” his father is, or what a “fool” his mother is, or how bad the absent parent is, or what terrible things that person has done, you are telling the child half of him is bad. That is an unforgivable thing to do to a child. That is not love. That is possession. If you do that to your children, you will destroy them as surely as if you had cut them into pieces, because that is what you are doing to their emotions. I sincerely hope that you do not do that to your children. Think more about your children and less about yourselves, and make yours a selfless kind of love, not foolish or selfish, or your children will suffer.”
