Hey guys, Paul Seabrook with Seabrook Law. Dispensing advice today guys, okay?
So as a divorce lawyer, of course, you know, we get into these very difficult custody battles, custody situations, okay? And, you know, they’re brutal, and they’re long and it can be very, very difficult. And if I could, if everybody could listen to me, this world would be a lot better place. Okay? The first thing you want to do is make sure that you don’t criticize the other parent in front of your children. Okay? And it’s not just that, you don’t want to let anybody you know criticize the other parent in front of your children. Okay, so that means that when you’re driving in the car, and you’ve got your daughter and your son in the backseat, and then grandmother is on the speakerphone, bad mouthing the ex spouse, that’s something you got to stop, okay? Your children will forever remain half of your ex spouse. Okay? And so when, when you criticize the ex spouse, you’re criticizing the children, there’s no other way to see it. That’s what the children are going to feel. It’s going to be miserable for them. And guess what, they’re not going to tell you. Okay, so they’re going to suffer in silence in misery as a result of you not stopping this abuse.
So, take it from me, I’ve seen it over and over again, the kids are seriously damaged by the criticism of the other parent. Okay, so you don’t do it and you get everybody you know to stop doing it in front of the kids. Okay, then they should never hear any bad words about the other parent. They’re smart enough to know what the truth is, and you don’t need to waste your time on hurting them by trying to poison their mind against the other parent. Hope you guys heard that.
