The authors message revolved around the topic of co-parenting. It demonstrated co-parenting in terms of divorced or separated couples. The author does a good job of presenting the reader with some high profile celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Orlando Bloom and how they handle issues on co-parenting. I think that it sheds light on co-parenting as a whole because they use people that the mainstream public looks up to and how they deal with co-parenting.
- Parents should put their own egos aside and realize that the children have to come first
- Co-parenting families will look very different from the idealized view of families, but that is ok
- Each parent needs to take seriously how the child sees them speaking about the other parent
“I feel it’s my responsibility as a mom when their dad is not there to let them know that their dad loves them very much because that’s the doubt that they have when he’s not around or they haven’t seen him.”
