As you work through your divorce and child custody agreements, you may be experiencing some bitter emotions. Some Florida couples divorce because of infidelity or other indiscretions that cause animosity between husband and wife. Even though you may feel an extreme amount of anger toward your ex, you must remember to use discretion when talking about that person with your children.
You may feel as though the children's other parent is a "bad guy," but you might want to think carefully before making disparaging remarks. Remember children need the love and support of both parents. They identify with both of their parents, in fact; if you are unnecessarily critical of your ex, you are ultimately criticizing a part of your kids. Your child could lose self-esteem because of your comments.
