2Opt for a positive tone when you talk to your children about your ex

It’s true that it’s tempting to downgrade your ex. Your marriage has not met your expectations and you are doubtless wounded, disappointed, and angry. Still, remember that you’re an adult. Children need to respect their parents. That helps them to respect authority in general and to grow up being respected by others.

Even if your ex denigrates you, don’t answer, don’t give tit for tat. That will only undermine your child’s respect for you. You may say that if you don’t defend yourself, your child will see you as weak. Actually, ceaseless hostilities are what gnaw away at respect.

Constructive communication…

…here’s a solution: 2houses provides an opportunity for clear, full, and changing communication between ex-spouses that is free from all emotional charges, in the strict interest of their children.

Children must always feel that they are supervised by parents who are attentive to and aware of their scholastic and extracurricular activities, health, and so on.

2houses is an extraordinary way to enable parents to continue managing their joint child-rearing responsibilities. It offers precise management of expenses and a customisable parenting schedule that the children may also consult.

2houses helps parents to carry out their parental responsibilities serenely, in the absence of an emotionally charged context. That, in any event is how various family dispute specialists – lawyers, judges, psychologists, and teachers – see it.
