Communicate Better With My Son's Father
1  of  11
"I resolve to keep my eye on the prize: A caring and friendly relationship with my son's dad, who will always be part of my family. I resolve to send him nice emails, not snarky ones. I resolve to continue to be grateful for how far we've come, and to let him know how much I appreciate it when we're doing well, which is more often than not. I resolve to enjoy the version of family that we are, and the sweet moments we share when we're all together. And I resolve to keep in touch, sharing news about our son, laughing about his adventures and supporting each other through the difficulties. We will always be parents together, and I'll never stop being committed to making our co-parenting as good as it can be." -- Susan Stiffelman , author of Parenting Without Power Struggles
