Does co-parenting really work?
And if it does, how have you managed to keep the peace? DH is soooooo good at ignoring BM’s stupidity, but it really bothers me that BM only puts her wants and needs at the forefront of family decisions. Yea, I am only the stepmom but DH and I have four kids together, so their choices affect my kids and vice versa with BM’s family. Shouldn’t we compromise and find a balance for both families? BM thinks she controls the decisions but custody is 50/50 so it should be a mutual agreement. It has always been BM’s way or the highway. DH battles with her as much as he can but it shouldn’t always be a battle. How can we create a fair, level playing field for both parents? Or is that even possible for the dad?
