Children are Harmed When

The emotional health of parental relationships largely depends on the attitudes and actions exhibited.  Consider the following that can be dangerous to the children:

  • Make their child choose between them
  • Question their child about the activities and relationships of the other parent
  • Make promises they do not keep
  • Drop in and out of the life of the child
  • Are inconsistent in using their parenting time
  • Argue with or put down the other parent in front of the child or where the child can overhear
  • Discuss their personal problems with the child or where the child can overhear
  • Use the child as a messenger, spy, or mediator
  • Stop or interfere with parenting time because child support has not been paid
  • Do not show respect for each other
  • Undermine the relationship of the child with the other parent
