Then, yeah. Communication is definitely key. Just tell him what your concerns are and ask if he's willing to help ease your fears about them having too much red meat too fast. I think if you present things in a way that's asking for cooperation instead of demanding, it definitely works out way better. haha

My parents had joint custody of my brother and me and all the big things like schools, holidays, etc (and probably other things that I thought didn't matter at the time) were all made as joint decisions between them and as we both got older they asked how we felt too. But apart from that, the houses were worlds apart. At times it wasn't great, sometimes confusing for our friends and any clubs we were in, but it worked for the most part. Mum's rules were for her house and dad's rules were for his.

Lol. Yeah, yelling and arguements get you no where fast. :wink:. And this divorce, has caused a lot of resentment and anger. I just need remember to keep our divorce and our "co parenting" in two separate catergories in my mind.

For sure. If you're able to do that, even most of the time, it'll make co-parenting so much better. haha <3



And I'm sorry to hear about the divorce. :( Even if it's for the better, I'm sure it's hard.

I could never be on the same page with my son's father and his family. After some time I just got use to it and they got use to me, as so long as they werent crossing the line I was ok with things (although I pretty much hated everything they did lol).

Oh no he was abusing me infront of my son. But it's just that they never listend to what I had to say and did things behind my back (like give my son noodle soup at 4 months).
