Actress Garcelle Beauvais stopped by HuffPost Live on Tuesday and shared her best co-parenting advice.
Warning that it's "not easy," Beauvais said that the most important thing is to put the kids first. Her other advice?
"[The kids] shouldn't be a part of adult drama, and I think we also need to respect what makes us a family," she said. "We celebrate each other's birthdays to teach them how to treat a family."
"The Jamie Foxx Show" actress filed for divorce in June 2010 amid revelations that her ex-husband, talent agent Mike Nilon, had been having an affair. The pair have two kids together, and the actress has one son from a previous marriage.
