When divorce happens children often get spoiled from one of both parents with many material gifts and relaxed rules. Coming up with a plan so your child won’t play mom against dad is essential. Kids are very savvy and will do this on occasion. If your child says they get away with more at Mom’s house, don’t always believe it. Set up a time and talk to your ex. You need to communicate and come up with a plan for your child. Most importantly realize experiences, like a trip to the park mean more to your child than the latest toy request.
- Do not soothe your child with guilt gifts because you are divorced. Have experiences with your kids, in the end they will mean more.
- Reach out to your ex if you think your child is playing mom against dad. Kids are pretty savvy and it needs to be dealt with.
- Being divorced with children leads to a lot of problems, do not let your child become spoiled to help your guilt over not being there all of the time.
“Just because your daughter says that her mom lets her get away with something or that she buys her cool stuff doesn’t mean that’s what’s actually happening.”
