If your ex requests an adjustment to their designated custody days, you do not have to agree unless explicitly instructed to do so by a court. You know, it’s like when your ex says that thing that undermines your parenting, and you feel that tightening in your chest and your stomach drops out. I will refer to it often over the next 6 years until my kids are all legal adults and I can be done with dealing with my nasty, toxic ex.

If you feel like this is what’s happening, it’s okay to say no or try to cut down on the communication. Maintaining a level-head will not only help you in the long run, but it will positively impact your children. Now, there certainly are times you may wish to obtain professional help with more serious issues such as abuse or addiction, etc.When conflicts arise, shift the focus to how decisions and actions can positively impact the children.
