FamilyLife Blended® Minute
Let Kids Be Kids
Parents need to be reminded: Kids don't think like us.
About the Guest
Kids don't always see it the way we do. Like at the end of a hard day, you want peace and quiet, but they want to play and be with you! Kids don't always see co-parenting the way you do either. You want a 50/50 visitation time because that's fair. But kids don't keep track of time. They want to love and have reliable, predictable contact with both parents. Or you think your former spouse is a crazy loon. Your kids don't care. Be a parent and think like a parent, but let your kids be kids.
