This is the truth. As parents we have a big responsibility to our children. This responsibility includes putting their needs before our own. In the midst of a divorce, where emotions are at an all time high, it is easy to indulge in insulting words towards your spouse. This can become second nature and can happen in front of your children. This is a destructive and selfish thing to do. Our children look to us for stability. When we are unstable, we cannot turn to our children for stability or vent to them about how terrible the other parent is. That is unfair to them and causes terrible consequences. As parents it is our responsibility to behave in appropriate ways and that includes not bad mouthing the other parent.
