You’ve divorced a #narcissist, a #Hijackal®. That was difficult, no doubt.Now, you’re settling in–or trying to settle in–to some kind of reasonable co-parenting model. That’s tough, too. I know, I’ve done it. It’s not easy to co-parent with a #narcissist. It’s not what you expected to have to do. You’re still resentful about the relationship, and devastated by the divorce. BIG RULE: Never make your children feel like pawns, messengers, or casualties of your divorce. Yes, that’s tough, too, but it is SO important. In a perfect world, after divorce, your children would only know that life is more peaceful with two homes, and that they miss the parent they are not with. That’s it. That’s how it should go.
