Will you be wondering what the challenge that is biggest of co-parenting with an ex is? Well, it is the whole thing.

Co-parenting with an ex may be exhausting and messy and then make you want to tear the hair on your head down on a basis that is regular.

(We’re not exactly in the stage where we’re actually laughing in regards to the abusive e-mails of 2014, but we’re getting here.)
