Everyone has different parenting styles and sometimes hard to keep mouth shut. But remember in the end the children suffer when ther is hatred. My Hub and me stayed close with Ex wife Now 32 years later still celebrate Xmas with Ex and Step son and Step Grands. At Stepson wedding shocked when His Ex hd me introduced as His mother also. I feel blessed I not only Have our combined children and grand hildren But I also have my Stepson children in my life. Resident babysitter lol. I also always made sure i took a back seat to his Mom in their Lifes . She moved several states away and At Christmas Thanked me for being there for them. Stepson well adjusted and very happy. I have a family member that has gone thru court system and fighting constantly with Ex Lousy communication. There 1 kid is a mess The other seems self centered but could be the age Teenagers.
